Google Plus Shutting Down April 2

Google recently announced that Google+ (also known as Google Plus) will shut down beginning April 2, 2019. Google+ is Google’s version of a social network, and was launched in 2011 to provide features similar to Facebook and Twitter.

This shutdown applies only to Google+ accounts; no other Google/Gmail/G Suite accounts will change.

If you are one of the two percent of individuals at Boise State still using Google+, consider downloading your data before April 2.

Instructions for downloading are available on Google’s website:
