Google confirms the closure of the social network of Google + before April 2 | Technology

Google announced on Thursday (1) that the social network on Google+ will be closed on April 2, 2019. It is the official end of a project that was born with the objective of competing with Facebook, but never got to consolidate between Internet users.

The company, which already announced its intention to close the platform last year, had indicated that this would happen in April, but that it had not yet established a specific date.

The personal data of the users that were exposed were names, email addresses, profession and age.

The platform was vulnerable between November 7, when Google released a software update that was responsible for the accident and, on December 13, six days later, when the company found its # error corrected and it.

The company said it was not aware that the theft of information by third parties had been produced during this time.
