One year ago today, Google pulled the plug on Google+, possibly one of its most beloved products ever. To be frank, Google+ was already on life support well before that. The influx of bots, lack of a clear vision for the platform, and poor development all marked the end of Google+ even before Google officially announced it would be sunsetting the social network. I anticipated the downfall and started looking for greener pastures, which led me to Twitter. I still needed a place for my long-form writing though, which eventually led me to Cake.
It's been a year now since Google+ left us, and I wonder how the other Google+ refugees are doing. I'm quite happy with my Twitter - Cake combo. Twitter is where I go for my news and my own social media posts, while Cake is where I go for my writing and to get into more in-depth discussions.
How about other refugees?
