G+ Migration Post Mortem: What went well, what went poorly, what are lessons learned?

We're now well into the post-Google+ period, and I'd like to open up the question of how things went.

I've got my own mental list of things which went well or poorly in the process, of the latter, many of which involve myself.

This is open to contributions and discussion.

Discussion here or at PlexodusReddit.

There's a Plexodus Wiki Post Mortem page open as well.

A set of 604 curated "locally notable" G+ profiles


This list comes from a set of contributions from +Eli Fennell's listing here:


Though not strictly-speaking "signal flares", I've submitted the profiles to the Internet Archive's Wayback machine (scripted via the "Save" URL) -- that part took about 90 seconds. Sorting out grabbing all the profile names and IDs from G+ HTML (and wrestling with local systems) a couple of hours.

A really good reason to pin a #signalflare post is that that pinned post WILL SHOW UP IN THE INTERNET ARCHIVE when saved.

(I'll schedule another save or few of this through April 2.)

This'd be a good set of folks to keep tabs on and through whom to find others.

I'll be adding this to the #PlexodusWiki Notable Names Database (NNDB) ... eventually:

ArchiveTeam uploading of Google+ content to the Internet Archive

So it turns out that fetching data from Google was only part of the archiving process -- the other is sending that to the Internet Archive. That's what this image (and link to the tracker) shows. About 2/3 complete by my eyeballing here:


(That's going to be relatively current for the next day or so, given it's a relative date offset of about 15 days.)

I've also heard that the Communities fetch may not have been as successful as hoped. Again, that was intended to capture effectively the paginated views of G+ communities, though it was an additional goal, and started late in the process. The contents should (mostly) make their way to the Archive, but it may not be easy to navigate by Community there.

And there is an Archive Team Google+ Archive Collection at the Internet Archive which makes navigation a bit cleaner: https://archive.org/details/archiveteam_googleplus

Friends+Me Google+ Exporter can still access images & video

If you're like me, well, first, my deepest sympathies, but you've used F+MGE to capture your posts and other text content, but were saving images for later, only to be caught by the Google+ shutdown.

Turns out that googleusercontent.com is still serving up those images (this may be data that's harder for Google to remove), so you can still fetch media content through Google+ Exporter.

Hop on that now if you're interested.

Archive Team are 59% through their stretch goal of archiving G+ Communities

"Googleplus2" a/k/a G2 is a project to archive all public G+ community content. This was a "stretch" goal of the Google+ archiving project.

The tracker here shows the full project, there are 81,270 or so work sets of 100 communities, and as of a few moments ago, the project was at 59% complete, with about 6 hours left to run at present rates.

The contents should appear at the Internet Archive in about a month or so, it'll take time to move it all there.
