Google Plus is Shutting Down!

Could be an opportunity specifically for #Hubzilla, #Osada, #Zap, #Socialhome, and #diaspora.

Non-enterprise Google+ will shutdown on 2019-08-31. It's not clear if Business Pages and Community Groups are included. Since these two are integral and were built on top of Google+, hundreds if not thousands of Pages and Groups have to find a new home, a new platform.

@Nick Ka Yep, but hopefully it will be some export file as well so we will have a chance to import it to Hubzilla somehow. I recalling the announce on common Data Transfer Protocol.
Ahh, yep, the Data Transfer. This will be a very good time to implement it fully and see it in action.

I think for the Fediverse it's just a matter of who's willing to code it. The way I understood DTP is it's sort of a unified "language" or set of data. How to label and arrange "boxes" so other networks can unbox it properly for their own use and system.

And then submitting to the DTP the transfer and auth code for a particular service/software so the DTP itself can handle it and make it automatic, without the user needing to export and import manually.

At least it's how I understood it.
