Well, that didn’t last very long! Nine months after coming into the world, Google Spaces is going to meet its digital maker in April 17th of this year. I posted last week about an update to Google+ which had Spaces removed from the menu and suggested that it could mean the end is near for the social sharing service. That has now been confirmed – but I’m not sure if anyone is going to be too upset. Spaces will become just another carcass on the pile of failed projects (not just by Google mind you) that never was fully explained, fully supported or fully accepted.
For those of you who are using Spaces, they will become read-only this Friday, March 3rd. At that point you will not be able to add any content to your Spaces. What is an alternative? Ironically, Google+.
