Google kills off FLoC replaces it with Topics

You may be interested to know that Google has announced that they will be killing off FLoC, their previous paid topic suggestion service. Instead, they will be replacing it with a new free feature called Topics.

Google’s FLoC (Feed) and Knowledge Graph are dying off. And now, instead of being buried in your Gmail, they’re going to be integrated into the knowledge graph.

The new feature is similar to the old one, but instead of being payed, it is free. Instead, Google will be offering the service as a means for you to connect with other people who share your interests.

How It Works

Topics are broken up into categories, just like FLoC was. Each category has its own section on the left, and you can click into each topic to see what others are talking about.

If you’re already logged in to Google, you’ll find the Topics tab at the top of the page.

If you’re not logged in to Google, you’ll be taken to the login screen where you can log in using your email address.

Once you’ve signed in, you’ll be presented with a list of all the topics that you’ve previously been interested in. The topics will appear on a map of the world.

You can also search for topics by typing in keywords or phrases that you would like to see more discussion about.

How Much It Costs

Topics is a free service, so there is no cost for using it. You will, however, be limited to how much you can search for topics and see results for.

If you want to be able to search and view topics in more detail, you’ll need to upgrade to Google+ for free.

It’s free for now, but Google may decide to make it a paid feature at some point in the future.
