Google+  (pronounced and sometimes written as Google Plus; sometimes called G+) was a social network owned and operated by Google.  The network was launched on June 28, 2011, in an attempt to challenge other social networks, linking other Google products like Google Drive, Blogger and YouTube.  The service, Google’s fourth foray into social networking, experienced strong growth in its initial years; although usage statistics varied, depending on how the service was defined.  Due to low user engagement and disclosed software design flaws that potentially allowed outside developers access to personal information of its users, the Google+ developer API was discontinued on March 7, 2019; and Google+ was shut down for business and personal use on April 2, 2019.  Google+ continued to be available as "Google+ for G Suite", later rebranded as "Google Currents".

In the summer of 1968Haymarket Square was approached by the Museum of Contemporary Art to provide the music for a work of art on display at that time called The Original Baron & Bailey Light Circus, which had been put together by two college professors.  The Facebook and Google+ pages for the museum recently showed some drawings for the exhibit.  For the most part though, the exhibit seems to be remembered mainly as the source of the Magic Lantern album.
