This new broke on WSJ 23 minutes ago. Here's the key section, which makes it clear that Google+ will be going away, and fairly soon:

As part of its response to the incident, the Alphabet Inc. GOOGL -2.43% unit plans to announce a sweeping set of data privacy measures that include permanently shutting down all consumer functionality of Google+, the people said. The move effectively puts the final nail in the coffin of a product that was launched in 2011 to challenge Facebook Inc. FB -0.81% and is widely seen as one of Google’s biggest failures.

A software glitch in the social site gave outside developers potential access to private Google+ profile data between 2015 and March 2018, when internal investigators discovered and fixed the issue, according to the documents and people briefed on the incident. A memo reviewed by the Journal prepared by Google’s legal and policy staff and shared with senior executives warned that disclosing the incident would likely trigger “immediate regulatory interest” and invite comparisons to Facebook’s leak of user information to data firm Cambridge Analytica.

Chief Executive Sundar Pichai was briefed on the plan not to notify users after an internal committee had reached that decision, the people said.

The planned closure of Google+ is part of a broader review of privacy practices by Google that has determined the company needs tighter controls on several major products, the people said. In an announcement Monday, the company is expected to say it is curtailing the access it gives outside developers to user data on Android smartphones and Gmail, the people said.

The Psalms shout Christ. They are written by, for, and about Jesus.

Implication: The Psalms give the believer the greatest comfort when he or she discovers that the they are all about Someone Else.

In Jonah 2:9, when Jonah sings, "Salvation belongs to the Lord!" The word "salvation" in Hebrew is yeshu'a.

Sound familiar?
