You Are Here:Google to close down Google+ for consumers after possible data breach

(Telecompaper) Google has announced it will be closing down its Google+ social network for consumers and giving users better control over their data. The moves come after the company’s Project Strobe, started earlier this year to review third-party developer access to Google account and Android device data, found out that the profiles of up to 500,000 Google+ accounts were likely exposed to external developers. The bug was discovered and fixed in March but the company cannot say which users were affected, because it only keeps API log data for two weeks. The wind-down of Google+ for consumers will take ten months.
