In tech news, The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Google will shut down its social network Google Plus after revelations of a data breach that exposed the private data of hundreds of thousands of users. The breach was discovered in March but was not disclosed to the public. An internal Google memo showed executives were worried they’d face new government regulations if news of the data breach got out. The scandal follows news last month of a major data breach at Facebook, which saw the personal information of nearly 50 million users exposed after an online attack.
