Google launches entreprise-based Social Network «Google Currents»

Google Currents is, uh, currently launching as a beta service that G Suite admins can request access to. The enterprise focus means it's for paying G Suite customers only. Google's blog post says Currents "enables people to have meaningful discussions and interactions across your organization, helping keep everyone in the know and giving leaders the opportunity to connect with their employees." Currents looks exactly like Google+, but with a new logo and maybe a slightly whiter color scheme.

Currents marks the end of the tragic story of Google+. One day, Google imagined a future where everything was social and began viewing Facebook as an existential threat. Google+ was cooked up as the answer in 2011, and then-CEO Larry Page tied every Google employee's yearly bonus to the company's success in social, basically mandating Google+ integration for every made product.

After eight years of mostly negative press, it's no wonder Google decided to change the

Hey everyone, I’m a new #gplusrefugee just landing here. I was Boris Borcic there, but for the moment I’d like to try using the transition to change username/identity... unless it reveals easy to change username here without unwanted rippling. At the entry point, I listed the following hashtags as my interests #algorithm, #art, #artificialintelligence, #bias, #biology, #climatechange, #cognition, #english, #french, #gplus-fr, #gplusdiaspora, #humanrights, #linguistics, #mathematics, #physics, #politics, #programming, #python, #religion, #science, #switzerland, and #usa.

Thanks for the invite, @Garry Knight!


 
My 2c of the moment - first, more power to you for doing something creative and respectful. That's a great thing to do... been there, Sept. 11... That would be really cool for those of us - 400-500-600 I think before lights went out - too. We're a small group that shared a real historic event in social media, and bore witness, with music, cartoons, F-U's, and goodbyes. But the good news: Many of us are more or less intact, and among some recent and old friends. "All good" /heavy

Other 1c - I've just tried keeping my feed focused on the tag #gplusrefugee, which is what I've used and brings me to familiar people I've only met in recent months. I see similar hashtags (i.e., googleplusrefugees) and it turns out a whole different set of people and none of my own posts). So... the hashtag really does rule "here" and almost makes up for some losses - and t quiets down the feed from larger tags (e.g., music) or all aspects if you have many. I'm usually trying to focus when I'm at the computer and co... show more

Whoops, #gplusrefugee here. Google deleted all of my earlier reportages by killing g+ … Reposting here now.
One per day …

EDIT: SAVE YOUR FINAL EMAIL NOTIFICATIONS FROM G+

Hmm. I just realized that the 70 or so email notifications, that came in from G+ during the final moments, each contain a thread of multiple emails containing the text of the comments.

I'll have to find the best way to preserve those.

Those contain the final words from a bunch of my contacts, as things were shutting down. They were NOT captured for the Internet Archive.

Whatever you have in your inbox is the only remaining copies.

Too much. I can't see any posts on my profile, but it added a follower when I logged on?😀 #googleplus has a sick sense of humor. #gplusrefugee I'm still very emotional about this. We were part of this almost magical moment in time. #thisiswhywecanthavenicethings

To those whose comments to me, in a post of mine, or anyhow else:


I today was bothered by a bug that automatically created a #newhere - post including all the tags I follow, and didn't mark the recognised notifications as read, as supposed. This went on for the entire day, until a few minutes ago, up to an hour at most. I shortly switched over to my Pluspora-account (you find it in my biography, it's my backup account in case I should permanently leave this account here), to share some of the news I read in the meantime. Now, I'm back here again, but as it seems, some of my comments have disappeared, putting me back to a status quo ante. I don't know in which form it also affected my posts, but I am sorry to anyone who will inadvertently be ignored by me regarding the comments or whatever. It's not my intention, nor my fault, but since it would endure too much time which I am not ready to reinvest just because of technical difficulties, but I hope that henceforth, it will all work properly as bef... show more


 

Final Hours of G+


I've found people and places that I'd not known of while G+ was kicking. Nevertheless, I'll be sad when the final bell tolls.

Hey everyone, I’m #newhere. I’m interested in #arizona, #cats, #comics, #dogs, #gplusrefugee, #marvel, and #wwe. My mom is cobalt and I'm starting over here because I will really miss G+. Mom will help me to find friends here. I definitely want to find some of my homies!

Internet Archive to store Google+ to assure its availability after April 2nd, 2019


It's not completely surprising that efforts would be underway to preserve Google+, but it's an unusual situation. You don't see archivists preserving a major social network (albeit one that struggled to compete) very often. The question is whether or not it will be a comprehensive record -- there isn't much time left to safeguard every last ounce of public content.

I managed to get our friend @cσυηт hσOρυƖα un blocked from #Pluspora. Thanks again @Di Cleverly for being reasonable about this.

^(This thread might be gone soon, it was posted from a new Theaitetos account he made on Pluspora. If someone could point me to a good archiving web site we could use to preserve threads like this, I would appreciate it.)

I'm in a funk these days about the vanishingly small chance we have of escaping climate catastrophe, pretty much everywhere. Wonky articles like this give me a little hope that we "just" need some rational dealmakers to make big changes (albeit ones motivated by fear of social and political disaster).

The post I already shared on pluspora.com Lets reshare it here too.

ok so the recommendation lets get done with that. I am an old googleplus user joined while still was not open to public.
#GPlusrefugee #newhere When its about tag newhere I am not really new on the diaspora network as I have accounts from the 2011 and 2012 on some other diaspora nodes. I think first was joindiaspora.com and diasp.org. I am also on friendica currently on the fediverse.me so you can add me as in1t3r@fediverse.me or here in1t3r@pluspora.com or just search marko.shiva.pavlovic @ other diaspora nodes.
I do not really feel as wanting to follow many people as I hate noise so I will be pretty much selective here you are still open to follow me and I will add my on node address once I set it up.
I am also part of the #KDE project especially #... show more


 

I'm very pleased to welcome a great talent and gifted artist to diaspora.


I have known him since Google+ first started and know that G+ suited his presentation of work ideally. His first post has been hijacked a little with some religious arguments so let us all show him that he is more than welcome here, please post comments to his original post
