Google+ is estimated to have hit 20 million users in just three weeks. If you've happily migrated over to your Google+ account and want to delete your Facebook account, Dennis O'Reilly goes over how to deactivate or delete accounts (no, they're not the same).
If, on the other hand, you've tried Google+ and just aren't impressed, we'll show you how to delete your Google+ content without affecting your other Google services. Don't worry; it seems Google has learned its lesson from the Google Buzz fiasco by making it simpler to remove Google+ from your digital life. Here's how:
Step 1: From Google+, click on the gear icon in the upper-right-hand corner, then click on Google+ settings.
Step 2: Under the "Accounts overview" section, go to "Services" then click on the link next to Delete profile and social features.
Step 3: Click on the radio button next to Delete Google+ content and then check the box next to Required, then finally click on the Remove selected services button.
You'll no longer have access to Google+ and all of your content will be removed "over the next few days." Most importantly, your Gmail, Google Docs, Google Calendar, and other Google services will remain untouched.
