jQuery Plugin To Display Google Plus Feeds On Your Website

A jQuery social feed plugin which makes use of plusfeed.frosas.net to get and display Google+ feeds from any Google+ page or user profile on your website.

 Official statement from Google: "On March 7, 2019, all Google+ APIs and Google+ Sign-in will be shut down completely. This will be a progressive shutdown beginning in late January, with calls to these APIs starting to intermittently fail as early as January 28, 2019."
