The Google+ favicon.

Google+, otherwise known as Google Plus, was a social network owned by Google LLC launched in June 28, 2011, which served as the primary platform for the mapping communities until it was replaced by Discord, mainly due to the instant messaging feature on Discord. Google+ was shut down on April 2, 2019, due to low user engagement and disclosed software design flaws.

Google+ was a major centre of mapping, and there were many mapping communities based on there, such as the Countryball Universe. Some mapping communities in the network were also subject to the raids of the Bat Mapping Community between 2017 and 2018.
