Over the next 10 months, Google will phase out of Google+. Google’s decision follows a history of low usage and engagement. Google+ will remain active for enterprise customers who use it to facilitate conversation among co-workers. Now focusing on a “secure corporate social network”, Google+ will roll out new features for that use.
Though Google+ is phasing out, Google My Business has expanded displayed features for businesses such as business description, services, bookings, messaging, and the ability to post as you would have done with Google+. Though similar to Google+ posts, some ways the post feature is different is that it does not show regularly after seven days and it incorporates a call-to-action button.
