Google is Already Shutting Down Photovine

Google is Already Shutting Down PhotovineSo remember Photovine? It wasn’t that long ago that Google’s new photo sharing service launched. To be specific, it was a week or two ago. So, you know, this thing was brand spanking new.

Why do we use the word “was?” Because Photovine is already being shut down, along with a photo sharing app called Pool Party which hasn’t even launched yet. The company behind the two apps – Slide – is shutting down too. It’s a pretty significant change up for Google.

One of the biggest reasons for this is the social media site known as Google+. The company says that these photo sharing services compete directly with Google+. What’s more, they don’t compete favorably – Google+ seems to do it all better.
