The "Name +" link to Google + is not showing up in my email or on my google search page anymore.  Is Google getting rid of Plus? I don't know why they would make it harder to get to.

Nothing slips past you.  We were all complaining about this a month ago, and no, we could not figure out why they did it.

To those who are getting information overload from the new format: At the top of the screen, there should be a bar that says "All", and your other G+ groups, and at the end, there is "More".  Click more and click the column symbol on the right.  That'll change it back (mostly)

I've looked. Back in the day, FB had RSS for its content, but that's long gone. G+ still doesn't even have a proper API for its content. There's too much value for them in being a walled garden, it seems. As seen by the death of Google Reader, walled gardens in general seem to have won out over aggregation-- for the time being at least :(
