Google+ Will No Longer Be Supported in the Social Tool Starting on January 28
Last year, Google+ announced that they would stop supporting the public API that our integration is based on, and that they are shutting down Google+ completely in April 2019. More recently, they've announced that service interruptions could be expected through the API as soon as January 28, 2019. As Google begins to stop supporting their public API, we've made the decision to remove Google+ from the social tool starting on January 28.
On January 28, you will no longer be able to use Google+ within the social monitoring, publishing, or reporting tool. Your reporting on Google+ and already published posts will stay in HubSpot until March 1, 2019, at which point they will no longer be available. If you try to schedule a Google+ post beyond January 28, you will see the following in-app banner in the social tool.
As HubSpot's social tool evolves, our team is focused on providing you with the tools you need to have the most impact on the social channels where your users are active. As it stands today, Google+ is the least used of our five supported networks. Removing Google+ gives us the opportunity to focus more heavily on our other supported networks, and explore new ways to help you find success with your social strategy.
