Google+ D-Day Advanced Directive (act now to download your data)

As I reported earlier, Google is pulling the plug on the consumer version of Google+. Well now the date has been set: April 2.

For those fledgling users who want to pay their last respects, and, more importantly, offload their data prior to D-Day, here’s a  hot to guide:

Download all your Google+ data

You can download an archive of all your Google+ data at once, including your Circles, Communities, Streams, and +1’s. Your archive includes your photos and videos from Google+.

  1. Go to the Download your data page. You might have to sign in. Your available Google+ data will be preselected.
  2. Click Next.
  3. Choose a file type.
  4. Choose how you want your data delivered.
  5. Click Create archive.

Download specific Google+ data

Instead of downloading all of your data, you can download specific Google+ data, like your photos, posts, communities, or events.

Important: If you want to download your photos and videos from Google+, make sure to select Photos under “Google+ Stream.”

  1. Go to the Download your data page. You might have to sign in.
  2. Next to the type of content you want to download (e.g., Google+ Stream), click the Down arrow Down Arrow.
  3. Click Select specific data.
  4. Select the specific data you want to download.
  5. Click OK.
  6. Click Next.
  7. Choose a file type.
  8. Choose how you want your data delivered.
  9. Click Create archive.

Cheers!

Citing poor traffic and low user acceptance (and without mentioning the words ‘data leak‘) Google has decided to pull the plug on Google+, its fledgling social media entity.
