Google has gone to valiant lengths to convince us that rumors of Google+’s demise have been greatly exaggerated, but Google is no longer forcing new Gmail users to connect their account to a Google+ profile - yet another move that could signal the end for Google’s troubled social network.

I think I speak for all of us when I say - well, nice of them to do something Google+-related right for a change.

In all seriousness - nobody asked for Google+, nobody wanted it, and virtually everyone hated it, and it does not solve any actual problem anyone had with Google products. It doesn't have to die, but it shouldn't be forced down our collective throats anymore.

My thoughts pretty much exactly, it's been the only social network I've seen that a) had posts I actually found interesting, and b) allowed me to sort/filter people in a way that made sense.
