*Google+ Mass Migration _short_ FAQ*

*Q: When is Google+ shutting down?*

*A:* *April 2, 2019.* _Five months earlier than originally announced._

*March 7, 2019* for *Google+ APIs*, including *Google+ Sign-in* and integrations for *web & mobile apps*.

https://developers.google.com/+/api-shutdown


*Q: Where should I go?*

*A:* There is no one answer! This community can help you chose where to go, but _you_ decide what fits best. _Where your personal contacts go matters most._

Major alternatives are listed here: https://social.antefriguserat.de/index.php/Established_G%2B_Exodus_Communities


*Q How do I know where people are going?*

*A:* Some have used this form: https://goo.gl/forms/EnkYfrY9HYKkr7iy2

The results are posted here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1GYSUTGpmz-2trxhvNyEv_rnNF1GvEf4OW0Lct7KxEiY

Others are using #SignalFlare posts, and #googleplus and #gplusrefugee hashtags on their new sites.

Also check a user's *About* page or pinned posts on their streams for forwarding information. Create these yourself for others to find.


*Q: Can I save my G+ content?*

*A:* *YES!* Use the Friends+Me Google+ Exporter for best results: https://gplus-exporter.friendsplus.me

_Other tools for archiving exist._ Official Google Data Takeout _can_ work but is problematic: https://takeout.google.com/settings/takeout/custom/plus_pages,circles,stream,plus_one,profile,plus_communities


*Q: I have more data migration questions/issues?*

*A:* See the Data Migration page: https://social.antefriguserat.de/index.php/Data_Migration_Process_and_Considerations


*Q: What should I be doing as a G+ Community owner / moderator?*

*A:* Communicate and coordinate with your community:
https://social.antefriguserat.de/index.php/Migrating_Google%2B_Communities


*Q: Should I delete my Google+ account or Communities?*

*A:* You could, but we don't suggest it. Doing so will remove all content you _and others_ have made, making it much harder for others to save their work.


*Q: Can I simply convert to a G Suite / Corporate Google+ account?*

*A:* Short answer: *No.*

Long answer: https://social.antefriguserat.de/index.php/FAQ#Q:_Is_there_any_way_to_continue_using_Google.2B_after_the_sunset.3F


*Q: What if I have more questions?*

Highly Simplified FAQ

After prolonged discussion, much drinking, and some fairly intense gunplay, John Lewis and I have arrived at the...
