Google + is going away, what would you replace it with?

Well, the good news is that we currently have four options to share Virily posts. The bad news is that as of April 4 (and in some cases earlier) Google + is closing. It is closing as Niume did. The site itself gone forever and all the contents currently there, deleted over time. They, Google has said that it may be 4 to 6 months before all content is gone. This is only the Google Property Google + Google + was Google’s Facebook competitor and honestly never really took off the way Facebook did. Google + is a great platform and offers integration with Google Hangouts, Google Voice, Gmail, and other Google services. The other services are not going away.

Today here on Virily, Google + is the fourth sharing option after you publish or when you read the posts of others. Since it is going away, there is the potential that the Virily site will choose a new 4th option. I do not claim that the admins will read this, nor was asked by anyone to post this. I decided on my own based on a conversation with Alex Ledante that it would be nice to have a 4h option that would replace Google + as a social sharing option. I will include several in the poll, and that I missed, please share them in the comments. I promise I will post the poll results here on Virily and also to the Facebook group.  Please understand the disclaimer; this is wishful thinking on my part.

In the comments for this post, please let me know the other sites you are using in the social posting and blogging world. Another option would be a WordPress publication. As a reminder, I am still collecting data, but so far for the majority of posts and posters there is a significantly greater impact from Twitter than the other three options today (Google +, Pinterest and Facebook). Finally also in the comments let me know if you are using Google + now and how is it that you use Google +. The reality of influence is we can influence team Vrily to pick something that we are all comfortable with. But the only way that words are if we present a clear and concise message to the Admins.

Join in and let’s see if we can help them pick a Social Sharing Site that we like!

  1. You did not offer up Flipboard as a choice or the fairly new Camooni. There is also the lesser know site I Heart It. I promote my stuff on FB, Twitter, Pinterest, Flipboard, Tumblr, Mix and Camooni. I have never heard of Patron.

  3. I know that G+ will close but also haven’t thought of a suitable replacement.
    I use G+ as I use Mix that you have referred to, I have a Tumblr account but I have never been active, others but now also inactive are Minds. Both for Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest, I have also stopped to share there for a long time because it is also not active. I understand that it’s important that there be a substitute for G + but I don’t have an idea for that.
