Thanks for your insightful comments. In terms of the hangouts platforms and other google tools those could have been and most likely would have been developed through G chat even without the investment in Google +. Despite some pockets thriving in G+ the platform as a whole fell way under Googles grand expectations and it really failed to be the market disruptor we all anticipated it would be.

Hmm, not too sure about this one. "All mediocre things must come to an end" seems a little strong. I agree G+ has seen most of its glory days and uptake from marketers and SEO aficionados who could see the value within the Google ecosystem for brands. Yet I have discovered through time many pockets of interesting communities who don't thrive on Linkedin, Facebook or Twitter.
Google+ provides an excellent platform, in particular with Hangouts for real-life meetings and webinars, not to mention links with other Google tools like pictures, videos, etc. Having said that, I agree that mainstream public did not jump onboard, but does that make it a mediocre thing? Not necessarily so.

I'll stick with G+, I happen to love the format with communities and being able to organize certain people in certain categories eliminating the need to second guess myself every time I post something for fear of the wrong group or person seeing a post which negatively impacts them.
Facebook is old hat don't care how popular it is. Its survival is based on users refusing to accept something new and innovative like G+ and I still will not use it based on many factors the least of them Zuckerberg's affinity for supporting causes and pepole of questionable morals.
Those who choose to interact with me know to find me on G+ and its works. I see no demise of G+ I see unwilling users refusing to adapt to a better way of social media communication.
