In last October Google had announced to close Google+ after a security issue that exposed user data. The search giant announced earlier this year that it would begin deleting consumer data from April 2nd. But before this happens, the Internet Archive team says that they are working to preserve the public posts before they disappear forever.

The Internet Archive have already begun to develop scripts to capture and back up the data for preservation. The posts that are made public will only be preserved. The private posts will not be archived. The images and videos will not be preserved at full resolution.
