We are sunsetting Consumer Google+ in August of 2019

Recently, we announced the decision to sunset the consumer version of Google+. Before anything else, we want to sincerely thank all of you. G+ has had a wonderful run, and it would not have been the same without you. Whether you use Google+ once a day or every few months, we appreciate your contributions over the years.

Given the challenges of creating and maintaining a successful Google+ that meets consumers’ expectations and the declining use of the platform, we believe this is the right decision.

We’ll provide more details right here on Google+ about how to export and save your personal content soon, and will give you time to do so. We expect to fully wind down the consumer version of Google+ in August of next year.

From all of us on the Google+ team, thank you for making this a wonderful place to share.

Sincerely,
Google+

Consumer Google+

We decided to sunset the consumer version of Google+. To give users a full opportunity to transition, we will be implementing this wind-down over a 10-month period, slated for completion by the end of next August. Over the coming months, we will provide consumers with additional information, including ways they can download and migrate their data.

Kirkjufell and Northern Lights by +Darren Huski

Share your travel stories, photographs, and favorite moments using the hashtag #mytravelstory. We want to know about the friends you made, the sights you saw, and the local cuisines you ate. Tell us your best travel tips and suggestions!
Kirkjufell and Northern Lights

The iconic mountain Kirkjufell and its famous waterfall Kirkjufellfoss with the aurora. One of the highlights of my Iceland trip was seeing the northern lights above Kirkjufell. I stayed three nights in the area and saw the aurora on two of those nights. The display I witnessed was amazing and I photographed them for over three hours. Here I set up by the waterfall and caught the amazing green glow over the falls and mountains.

When planning my trip to Iceland it was all built around certain photography destinations-this being one of them. I timed the trip for early September to be after the worst of the tourist crunch and also to have a little bit of darkness to see the aurora. We had roughly a 3.5 hour window of darkness every night 11:30pm until 3 am when we could see it. I camped nearby and by staying three nights hoped I would be able to have a clear night to see the lights. I was lucky enough to have two nights here to see the aurora.

I said "Wow!" a lot here. :-)

Also, to help you understand words in Icelandic: Kirk is church; Fell is mountain; foss is waterfall. So this is Church Mountain and Church Mountain Falls when translated.

One of the highlghts of my trip.

International Peace Day by +Tatyana Inarsh

Celebrate International Peace Day by appreciating the little things around you.

International Day of Peace
My peace is harmony in the soul, this is a look at the small things of Nature: flowers, and those who live on them, it's smells of plants, land, and the sea. I was lucky to live in such a place where there are mountains, mountain rivers and waterfalls, forests with wild animals, the sea, and near me the people I love, and my pets.
I wish peace and good to all in the soul, and in the world!
