Navigation bar notifications for Google web products will go away on March 7, 2019. Via Manage your notifications – Google Account Help

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/08

After March 7, 2019, notifications for Google web products will no longer be accessible from the navigation bar.

[WayBackManage your notifications – Google Account Help has more details, but it does not look good.

More Google stuff is dying, almost every month now. For a list of dying products see: [WayBackdidgoogleshutdown.com

Given more is dying, and the increased lack of confidence many people have in Google, more people are abandoning Google. More on that in a future post.

For now: [WayBack] “Manage your Notifications”: After March 7, 2019, notifications for Google web products will no longer be accessible from the navigation bar. If you’d l… – Edward Morbius – Google+

“Manage your Notifications”: After March 7, 2019, notifications for Google web products will no longer be accessible from the navigation bar. If you’d like to receive similar notifications in the future, you can update the notification settings for your individual Google products.

As usual, it’s not clear whether or not this will affect the notifications widget on G+ itself. Google’s standards for clarity in exposition remain uncorrupted. Which is to say: entirely inadequate.

Otherwise, the article addresses Google Photos, Hangouts Chat, and Google+ (G Suite users).

Update: Further close reading suggests that Consumer Google+ will lose Notifications on March 7:

Note: Google+ notifications are available for G Suite users only.

Local Guides Connect – Help Desk – Local Guides Connect

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/01

Reminder to self: Local Guides Nederland moved their [WayBack] G+ community over to [WayBackLocal Guides Connect – Help Desk – Local Guides Connect which is part of [WayBack] Local Guides Connect and powered by [WayBack] Powered by Lithium | Lithium.

Since that is not part of any other social media platform I subscribe to, I will likely only see new stuff when I actively go to that place: hopefully that is more than once a year.

Life after Google+: an export tool that use the G+ API and runs on Google Firebase

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/14

Another follow up on Life after Google+ – Lars Fosdal:

[WayBack] GitHub – RomainVialard/Google-Plus-Community-Migrator

This repository presents a way to export posts from a Google+ community (in this case the Google Apps Script community), along with comments & likes (plusones) using the Google+ REST API and import them in a Firebase Database, then use Firebase Hosting to display those posts. To see a live result, simply open this URL: https://apps-script-community-archive.firebaseapp.com/

It depends on the G+ REST API (so it will die earlier than G+ itself) and hosts on Google.

Life after Google+ – Lars Fosdal: Friends+Me Google+ Export tool.

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/11

A little while ago, I blogged about Life after Google+ – Lars Fosdal. In the mean time, Lars has made a lot of progress exporting the community [WayBack] Delphi Developers – Google+ (which has moved to en.delphipraxis.net !).

He is a heavy user of the Friends+Me Google+ Export tool, which basically is an actively maintained web scraper with standard output targets:

[WayBack] Google Plus Exporter – Medium: Export your Google+ feeds to WordPress, Blogger, and JSON.

It does not depend on the G+ REST API: “the app is using web scraping and will keep working until the bitter end”.

Quite a bit of that information and the feedback he has is in this thread: [WayBack1/WayBack2] Hi Everyone, We’ve just released Google+ Exporter, an application that helps you to export your Google+ feeds (profile, pages, collections, communities… – Friends+Me – Google+

Of course G+ does not save the whole thread in the WayBack machine, so here it is copy-pasted (unformatted; maybe I will format it later):
