    I'm amazed that MySpace even still exists in this day and age or that people still use it. Because for the past decade I haven't heard nor seen anyone mention it.

    Just deleted my account after reading this. Thankfully doesn’t affect past youtube comments or functions. Really only used it to talk to 3 high school buddies.

    The fact that they were aware of the security breach and did nothing to inform users just to maintain a positive public image is particularly scummy of them.

    Don't think I used Google+ for anything, so I can't really say that I'll miss it. How Google handled the situation is what gets me, more than anything else.

    We can all learn a thing from this: Trust no company with your data.

    Even fancy Google who people love to praise about them being the good guys and never doing anything wrong can't keep it together and are as bad as Facebook.

    I’m amazed that someone actually wrote this correctly for once.

    But the thing is YouTube's comment section runs on google plus so the comment section will break.

    So, how different was this from the recent Facebook hack?

    I used it quite a bit for their groups and I can be a bit more candid than on facebook because nobody knows me there.

    Anyone knows how can we change YouTube profile pics now? (yes they made us go to Google + for us to change the damn YouTube profile photo) RIP Google+. Btw all social media shit is a hidden way to collect data about consumer trends to better target them with products and stuff in case you don't know.

    There is a Lamborghini related group that posts pictures on there. That is all I've use it for over the last 3 or so years now. I tried to like it when it first came out. It only took about three days to realize that Google Plus wasn't worth my time. At least I'll get close to another year of those pics .
