Google announced the closure of some services and the fusion of space and Drive Picasa

Clipping walk these days, not only as far as 2013 budgets or staffing levels are concerned, but also in service in the Net: The guys from Mountain View have announced on their official blog that put an end to a series of Services that were offered, and also storage merge and Drive.

Thus, among those who cast the closing tools include AdSense for feeds, Classic Plus or the Places Directory app for Android, including as we see below:

  • AdSense for Feeds: It was designed to help publishers to earn revenue by placing ads on the ‘feeds’ of RSS. The service will begin withdrawing from Tuesday October 2, and will disappear completely on 3 December. Publishers can use the tool in place FeedBurner.
  • Classic Plus: This is a Google search feature that allows you to upload or choose images to use as wallpaper on, which also says goodbye. So, no longer able to upload new images from October 16, and the service will disappear permanently in November 2012. However, make it clear that we still have access to the images you’ve uploaded.
  • Gadgets spreadsheets: Also going away in early 2013, as explained from Google that tools that have proved most popular have been added for better graphics directly in Google documents, so these no longer exist.
  • Places Directory for Android: An application that helped find nearby places of interest and will be removed, because currently users of Google’s mobile operating system may find these recommendations integrated into Maps.

Other changes in measurement services and web traffic statistics, useful for Webmaster, and that from now integrate Analitycs.

In addition, Google has announced that it will merge the Picasa and Google services in the coming months Drive: Then, users will have 5 GB of free storage through both services.

The guys from Mountain View ensure that these changes are designed to optimize the services they provide and enhance the experience of its millions of users … In your case, you will miss some of the services and tools that will disappear?
