Facebook: stop stealing our failures, Google!
Well, goodbye, Google+… actually, most of us probably used that phrase within the first five seconds of using the social media platform. Created in 2011, Google+ attempted to rival the increasingly popular Facebook at the time. Seven years later, Google is finally putting this thing out of its misery.
But wait, there’s more… because the reason Google is shutting down Google+ is a recently discovered security bug that exposed as many as 500,000 accounts full of personal information. Oh, and Google didn’t mention that little detail until six months after the fact.
This issue is classified as… pretty much the same one that plagued Facebook. And Google basically followed Facebook straight into the crapper with this move. However, luckily for Google, hardly anyone used Google+, and the breach was far smaller compared to that of Facebook. See, things always work out for the best…
