Google shutting down social network Google+ after security bug disclosed

It will also stop allowing contact interaction data available through the Android Contacts API. What is Project Strobe and how does it relate to this G+ security issue? In other words, Google neglected Google+, possibly exposed profile info, and is now realizing that it should probably tighten things up a bit.
What action can I take?
The bug was patched two weeks after it was initially discovered (Google took two weeks to analyze the data before patching the hole), but has now made a decision to shut downGoogle+ as a consumer service.
"The review did highlight the significant challenges in creating and maintaining a successful Google+ that meets consumers' expectations", Ben Smith, vice president of engineering, wrote in a blog post.
"In the interim, since we can not trust that we know much or even most of what ought to concern the public, the FTC should install public-minded privacy monitors into the firms as an element of accountability". For Gmail (the consumer version), Google is updating its User Data Policy and limiting apps' access to data.
Finally, app access to Call Logs and SMS on Android are going to be limited moving forward.
Though it's been up and running for over a half-decade, Google+ never really got the consumer attention Google expected. That's probably a good thing. In fact, usage is pretty minimal on the site, with "90 percent of Google + user sessions" being "less than five seconds".
In the blog post, Google said it did not immediately announce the problems with Google+ because it was not sure which users to inform, who they were and what affected users could do to protect themselves.
According to the Google+ Profile API documentation, profile fields can store a treasure trove of sensitive user details such as such as name, email address, occupation, gender, age, nickname, birthday, just to name a few. That's it, according to Google.
Google will wind down Google+ during the coming 10 months to allow people time to download pictures, videos or other data they want from their accounts.
'Whenever user data may have been affected, we go beyond our legal requirements and apply several criteria focused on our users in determining whether to provide notice, ' a Google spokesman said in a statement to WSJ. Above, you can see how those controls will soon look.
