The list of products and services includes Google Wave, Knol and Google Gears.
It is the third time that the Google has announced a cut down in several of its products and services and at the same time after they had failed to take off.
Experts said the strategy might put off users from signing up to new services.
“We’re in the process of shutting a number of products which haven’t had the impact we’d hoped for, integrating others as features into our broader product efforts, and ending several which have shown us a different path forward,” said Urs Holzle, Google’s vice president of operations.
“Overall, our aim is to build a simpler, more intuitive, truly beautiful Google user experience,” he added.
So You can now sat Goodbye to Wave.
The seven latest products listed to be taken off are as follows:
An attempt to combine email and instant messaging for real-time collaboration
A service which allowed users to share bookmarks with friends
Allowed webmasters to add social features to their sites by embedding a snippet of code
Much-hyped effort to maintain web browser functionality when working offline
A graph of historical query results
A Wikipedia-style project, which aimed to improve web content
A project which aimed to find ways to improve solar power
Google had previously announced its plans to kill off some of the projects on the list but they have not been offline and dead yet and there is no announcement on when the off switch will be pulled for them. For example Wave was annouced to be retired in April but it is still live till December.
Google Plus gained 10 million users within the first 16 days after its private launch, and 40 million within the first 100 days, making it the fastest-growing social network in the history of the web. Though it’s too soon to comment that will Google+ be able to beat Facebook but now it definitely holds importance in social networking and social media.
