Sadly, Google+ is already in the ground. Many users are just waiting for Google to heap a wheel loader full of dirt on the casket and pay their final tributes. As we’ve been writing for months now, many Google+ users are moving to MeWe and the company is trying to make that transition as easy as possible. They’ve gone as far as developing the Google+ MeWe importer tool which is available now.
CEO Mark Weinsten posted in the MeWe updates group, instructions on how to use the Google+ MeWe importer tool. First, a few things before you attempt to use the tool:
- The tool only works on
- Be sure to download your Google+ data from Google Takeout in JSON format
- Be patient as MeWe has thousands of users uploading years of Google+ data so it may take a while
Thousands of you are using the Importer. Once you get the “pending” message using the Importer, you are done. That puts your G+ content into the queue. It may take several days before you see your content in your MeWe account, thanks for your patience. Already thousands of people in the queue and some of you have over 10 years of content moving in. Keep it coming!Mark Weinsten – MeWe CEO
Here is Mark’s Google+ MeWe importer instruction sheet:
MeWe is probably not for everyone but it is one of the options a lot of Google+ users are choosing. Some are moving on to Reddit, Twitter, Mastodon, MINDS, and other platforms but so far MeWe is the only to give this data import option. Personally, I am not importing anything, starting fresh has its benefits too. Wherever my old Google+ friends end up, it’s been a pleasure knowing you and best of luck to you all.
