Expediting changes to Google+ [David Thacker/Google Blog]

Google is shutting down Google+ for consumers in April, rather than August as earlier planned, as it discovers another security hole.

“Expediting changes” means “shutting down faster.” “Sunsetting” means “shutting down.” Corporatespeak is a means of evading accountability.

I like Google+ but I’m glad to see it shutting down sooner. Dragging it out just makes it more irritating.
