When I get asked what I think about some dubious reporting that appears based on a rumor, that they overheard from someone who once worked for 'some website', that Google+ may be shutting down, this is what I say.
Thanks to Eric Enge and Mark Traphagen for hosting me whilst I was by the pool in Brazil.

As you can see, Google+ is Google. But don't just listen to me, here you can hear it from Google.

p.s. clearly not ALL tech journalists; some get it.
