Best Answer

Sumit P. Advanced  SEO Executive
Google admits that Google+ has failed to achieve broad consumer or developer adoption since its introduction.

Google is shutting down Google+ for consumers following a security breach.

A software bug was discovered that gave developers access to private profile data of over 500,000 users.

However, Google says that there is no evidence of developers being aware of this bug. There is also no evidence that any data has been misused.

The bug was discovered in March 2018. A report in the Wall Street Journal says Google did not disclose this information sooner because it feared regulatory scrutiny.

Google+ is not working as facebook and twitter do...no body is getting benefits from this particular program to compare to other social platforms.

Where YouTube alone is best to make money and engaging people.
