At the beginning of this year, we started an effort called Project Strobe—a root-and-branch review of third-party developer access to Google account and Android device data and of our philosophy around apps’ data access. This project looked at the operation of our privacy controls, platforms where users were not engaging with our APIs because of concerns around data privacy, areas where developers may have been granted overly broad access, and other areas in which our policies should be tightened.  

We’re announcing the first four findings and actions from this review today.

Security is hard. Google takes the nuclear option... "Finding 1: There are significant challenges in creating and maintaining a successful Google+ product that meets consumers’ expectations. Action 1: We are shutting down Google+ for consumers."

This review crystallized what we’ve known for a while: that while our engineering teams have put a lot of effort and dedication into building Google+ over the years, it has not achieved broad consumer or developer adoption, and has seen limited user interaction with apps. The consumer version of Google+ currently has low usage and engagement: 90 percent of Google+ user sessions are less than five seconds.

RT bpict_ : 일반 사용자용 구글 플러스 서비스가 10개월 이내 종료됩니다. 올 봄 서드파티 개발자들이 비공개 프로필에 접근할 수 있었던 보안 결함이 발견됐고, 서비스 자체의 부진에 따라 폐쇄 결정을 내린 것으로 해석됩니다. http://bit.ly/2OJTHCa October 09, 2018 at 07:59AM http://twitter.com/bpict_/status/1049434156822859787
