Where to go after the Google+ shutdown

In December 2018, Google has announced that they would turn off their Google+ social network due to strange “challenges involved in maintaining a successful product that meets consumers’ expectations”.

Google+ account is going away on April 2, 2019

“On April 2nd, your Google+ account and any Google+ pages you created will be shut down and we will begin deleting content from consumer Google+ accounts”.

So, where to go and what to do now?

Second, find a new social network that fits your needs like Google+ did.
