Google+ Circle Sharing feature Cut Down
Were you a regular Google+ Circle Sharing user? Have you noticed a little something missing from your routine? If you have not then you might not be exactly depending on Circle Sharing. Earlier this week, Google+ very smartly removed their not so famous Circle Sharing feature without giving an official statement for the cause.
Although a lot of us already know or can speculate why this happened, it was probably because of the limited number of people actually using it legitimately. Others are only using it for the sake of sharing circles but are spamming, which is leading to a frustrating and super annoying feed.
Google+ has also gone MIA on the statistics; the last time that Google shared any detail about the G+ users was back in 2013 when they confirmed that they had 300 million active users. After that, no news at all of whether the users have increased or decreased.
When the circle sharing option was introduced it was liked and used by a massive number but after the new wave of ‘communities’ entering the market in December 2012, people shifted.
However, Google has introduced a new feature called ‘Collections’. This seems like the possible reason for scratching Circle Sharing. So the difference between the two can be considered that Collections only shares the content while circle sharing includes people/users.
Users can create groups according to the content, images and areas of interest. We all can hypothesize several reasons for scrapping off Google+ Circle Sharing; Google still has to give a proper official statement for axing the feature. Were you a G+ Circle Sharing user?
