I tried Google+ shortly after it first launched. The biggest problem, of course, was that most of my friends were still on Facebook. It didn't help that Google mismanaged the service from the get-go, in their attempt to compete with Facebook. The real-name debacle. Crowbarring G+ into other Google services. The mobile apps that always fell short, as if they'd prefer everyone use a web browser (preferably Chrome) instead.

I think the takeaway from the news of this data breach is that Google, for all their ballyhoo, prizes the satisfaction of their egos and bank balances about the greater good. The phrase "Don't Be Evil" is now a sick joke.

I've deleted my Google+ profile. Thankfully, you can do that without sacrificing your Google account. I keep that only for Google Drive and Google Docs, as I use those for collaboration with others.

Alternatives? Discord is the best alternative I've found for communication and collaboration. It's not Facebook and doesn't try to be. I would have said Tumblr, up until a year ago, but now they are becoming a walled garden, particularly if you blog anything remotely adult. Seriously, got yourself cheap webhosting, your own domain name, install Wordpress and have your words and pictures under your own control.
