Google is Already Shutting Down Photovine

Photovine-gone.jpgSo 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.
