To all our new Google+ Circle buddies, thanks for the interest and for connecting on this platform.
As Google has been pushing businesses and brands to hold off on jumping in to Plus while they work on an optimized platform for us, we at the +Chicago Sun-Times have decided to hold off on our activity here.
We won't close down this channel just yet, but will likely cease using it as an information platform, except maybe to pass along info on any migration we have to a business Google+ in the future.
In the meantime, you can follow +Craig Newman
, an editor for Sun-Times Media, for content and to engage in debates, discussions complaints, hangouts and anything else that comes to mind.
Thanks again for your interest and we hope to be back on the air in a full-bore capacity as soon as possible.
