@BryanLunduke I have made the first step in removing google from my life ( or at very least to reduce my google footprint) .

How?

I went to plus.google.com/downgrade , then deleted my google + data.

do I feel better for it? , well yes I do. yes I do indeed, so good that I also deleted my Orkut posts as a bonus.

Next to go ( and its a long winded step , will be dumping gmail - yes you can delete your google account piecemeal style.

@JaseEW @BryanLunduke Holy carp, I totally forgot about Orkut!
