Google has announced its timeline for closing its social network Google+, and the process is starting very soon.
For example, if (for some reason) you were thinking of signing up to experience the ailing social network before it's gone for good, you'll have to do it before February 4, when Google will remove the ability to create new profiles, pages, communities and events.
The Google+ comment feature will disappear from Blogger on February 4, and Google+ comments on all sites will begin vanishing into the ether on April 2.
Google+ sign-in buttons will also vanish from sites over the coming weeks (being replaced by regular Google login buttons in some cases).
You can download your own Google+ data using Google Takeout, which lets you grab your personal information from all of Google's sites and services.
If you're a community owner or moderator, you'll also be able to grab the author, body text and photos for every community post from early March.
