Try to guess what is the title of the blog post that announces that Google+ is terminated?
In the best traditions of corporate doublespeak, Google middle-management titled it "Project Strobe: Protecting your data, improving our third-party APIs, and sunsetting consumer Google+.

The Corporate Doublespeak dictionary:
1) "Sunset" - is a corporate doublespeak for "we are ashamed to admit it, but need to terminate this project in order to cut the cost".
2) "Project Strobe" - The Grim Reaper for gravely ill projects. "Project Strobe" team detects and kills useless products that suck out corporate resources.
