    RIP Google Plus. Though I don't really care much about it, I think it still was an alternative to Facebook's dominance in social networking.

    Social Networking is not in Google's DNA.

    First Google Waves. Then Orkut and now Google Plus?
    billubakra is absolutely right.

    But it's not appropriate for them to decide against informing public. You can't expect to do a F up and then just axe the product just cause you could. :/
