The oft-mocked Google+ is getting stripped of features that will be incorporated elsewhere into the Googleverse. Google has decided to "move some features that aren't essential to an interest-based social experience out of Google+," according to a post on its official blog today.

After Google just announced that it would be dropping the Google+ requirement for business videoconferencing this week, the search giant is planning to set loose its (fantastic) photo service, according to Bloomberg.
