Any website offering you a service for free is using your information. It's in the TOS nobody reads.

I'm less worried about Google knowing where I drove last month than I am about Google working with the Chinese government to facilitate their mass censorship. I think the latter is probably a lot more in line with why they took that line out of their code of conduct.

i do agree, facebook, and everything else of social media or free service is using your data (information) to sell and make money. So idk why people would want to leave it, its like saying leave social media also. It just makes no sense.

While it's true that it no longer prefaces the CoC, I did actually find that it's still stated in the last line of it.

Google+ launched during a time where it fell into the shadow of a lot of other social media. I never personally met a single person offline or on that used it for anything other than being able to login their account elsewhere. It was trying to be Myspace when people didn't even really want Myspace anymore. /huffs Oh welllll.

Makes sense. Well, to be exact it's more of a surprise that they kept that thing for as long as they did. I wonder who they needed to fire in order to let it go :laugh-squinted:

Does anyone even use Google+, anyway? I can't even remember what my Google+ profile looked like, anyway. Ah well, yolo. Rip, Google+. (Is it me, or do security breaches feel extremely common these days?)
