Four years after revealing her headset usable glass alphabet Google Inc closed several social networking accounts linked to the gadget glass, ending its push to popularize the expensive glasses with consumers.
On Tuesday, Twitter accounts, Facebook and Instagram to Google Glass is no longer activated, a development first reported in 9to5Google website.
A statement on the site Google Plus said: “Explorers Hello, we had a blast hanging out with you on G + around the Explorer Program.” He came to tell users to get in touch with questions about the page glass support.
The company declined to comment on the decision.

Crystal was greeted with enthusiasm among techies when unveiled for the first time in 2012. However, the device, allowing users to access e-mail messages on your screen at eye level and record video with a tiny camera, quickly he ran into trouble.
Some made fun of his awkward appearance, while others expressed concern that it could be used to make video recordings surreptitiously.
On Twitter, many interpreted the disappearance of social glass beads on Tuesday to mean an end to efforts to market the product to consumers.
Jonas Haberkorn (JonasHaberkorn) tweeted: “#GoogleGlass for consumers is dead, yes really dead.”
