Google+ to be turned off, here’s what you need to know and what businesses need to do.
For many, it doesn’t matter the news that Googles version of their social network is coming to an end because simply not enough people were using it. However, it was adopted by brands and independent businesses including ourselves, all creating an account.
OFFiGO took Google+ sharing icon off our site when our national version was built a couple of months ago, but for many they still have the G+ sharing icon on their website.
The official date the service will end is April 2nd 2019
Businesses are requested to go onto their accounts and save any images or information before April 2nd or risk losing it. Here are a few checklist items to follow to keep marketing information and websites up to date,
• Social sharing buttons
• Icon links to social networks in website header/footer
• Company and personal email signatures
• In-store signage
• ‘Write a G+ review’ links
• Printed marketing including business cards, posters etc
