Bye, Bye, Google · Bogdan Popa

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/02/28

Interesting approach: saying good bye isn’t that hard if you do not share a lot things with other people through it.

[WayBackBye, Bye, Google · Bogdan Popa:

I spent this past weekend de-Google-ifying my life and, despite my expectations, it wasn’t too hard to do. I started by moving all of my websites off of Google App Engine and onto a dedicated box that I had already owned. That was straightforward enough. Next, I removed any Google Analytics snippets from each of them and replaced those with my own analytics server that I had built a while back (it doesn’t store any PII, only aggregate information (and very little of that, too)).

Don’t complain about the multitude of “places”/services that your fav G+ers are going and how that makes your life miserable. We all met here by accident, had a good time, mostly. And now we move on.

There is no “one size fits all” replacement out there. Instead, look forward to meeting new people and old friends at whichever place you are going to.

Find me on Twitter, Mastodon and infrequently on Pluspora. Or maybe at a (hopefully open and distributed) new place that doesn’t even exist yet.

[WayBack] OK, maybe Diaspora can become my “new home”, at least for sharing my blog posts and allowing comments. – Thomas Mueller (dummzeuch) – Google+

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.
