Google Pulling the plug on Helpouts
+Google is prepping to pull the plug on its Helpouts platform.
#Helpouts #Google #GoogleHelpouts
Helpouts, which launched back in 2013 is a platform that allowed users to connect to experts in whatever they needed help in. For example if i needed help with Calculus I could hook up with a Math professor who can teach me on a 1 on 1 basis. It was a cool concept but my guess is that the community didn't get the exposure it needed to keep the platform running.
"We have some sad news to share with you today: Helpouts will be shutting down on April 20th, 2015. While this announcement was just posted on our site, we wanted you to hear the news directly from us.
Since launching in 2013, Helpouts has been a home for people to connect with experts on topics they want to learn about or seek advice and solutions to everyday problems. The Helpouts community includes some engaged and loyal contributors, but unfortunately, it hasn't grown at the pace we had expected. Sadly, we've made the tough decision to shut down the product.
