Google isn’t known for restraint when it comes to creating new products and services (especially ones with features that overlap existing properties), but it’s equally notorious for killing off products — sometimes even those with devoted user bases (e.g. Inbox by Gmail). So notorious, in fact, that not one but two different online resources have popped up to highlight all of Google’s many dead products. Let’s take a stroll down memory lane, shall we?

The first platform, Google Cemetery, offers up a list of 44 different products “sent into oblivion” along with the reason that each individual product died. For instance, Google+ had low user engagement and a data vulnerability. RSS/Atom feed aggregator Google Reader, which died in 2013, had a “loyal but declining” following and Google wanted to focus on fewer products. Google Answers (2002-2006) was an online knowledge platform that, you guessed it, died due to lack of users.
