Google+ shutting down after users' data is exposed

Quote
Google is shutting down much of its social network, Google+, after user data was left exposed.
It said a bug in its software meant information that people believed was private had been accessible by third parties.
Google said up to 500,000 users had been affected.
According to a report in the Wall Street Journal, the company knew about the issue in March but did not disclose it.

They should have shut it down 6 months ago when the problem was discovered.
