Google released “Google+” (Google Plus or G+) in June 2011 to compete with other social networks including Facebook. Since many people are using Google’s plethora of products, it seemed right for Google to enter the social network market.

After many years trying to make it work, Google announced the decision to shut down Google+ for consumers (Google+ account and any Google+ pages) in December 2018.

The reason behind the shut down is because Google+ isn’t getting enough attention Google wants it to have. The low usage for Google+ is what drove Google to call it quits which will take effect on April 2, 2019.

Google provided steps on how to download your photos and other content you put on Google+, if you ever did.

On April 2, 2019, your Google+ account and any Google+ pages will be deleted from your consumer Google+ accounts, including the photos and videos from Google+ in your Album Archive.

Download your Google+ data

You can export and download your Google+ data, including your Google+ circles, Communities, Streams, and +1’s.

Important: Downloading your Google+ content may take time, so get started before March 31, 2019.

Note: Downloading your Google+ data does not delete your Google+ profile. Learn how to delete your Google+ profile here: https://support.google.com/plus/answer/6320423

Download Google+ data for deleted Google+ accounts

If you previously deleted your Google+ account or your Google+ page, Google informed you that your photos and videos from Google+ would continue to appear in your Album Archive (https://get.google.com/albumarchive/) and your Google+ Events content wouldn’t be deleted.

Google will begin deleting this content on April 2, 2019. If you want to keep this content, download it using the above instructions before April 2019.
