Wooga and Electronic Arts have announced their intentions to pull their games from Google+. The decision from two of the five largest social gaming companies comes as a result of the network's struggles in engaging users, and the larger audience available on Facebook.

...games don`t lie, the end is nigh...

What i always wondered is why they gave years of headstart just simple away (orkut), I guess they just didn`t see it coming...

The vast majority of people I know out of webmastering and the Internet have no clue or interest in G+. It appears to me that G+ has a foundation in the tech industry, which is probably, as you say, viggen, as with orkut.

G+ is nowhere near being as well recognized as Facebook and non-webmasters don't really want to maintain multiple social networks. Google gave it a good shot with integrating it into their everything, even search results, but it's just not catching on with anyone I know who isn't a webmasters.

Trust issues and a lowered opinion of Google in general are rearing their heads, imo.

That's right zeus, and it's happening every day already.

Users are going to have to 'want' to use it, and not be forced to use it.
