Step 1: From Google+, click on the gear icon in the upper-right-hand corner, then click on Google+ settings. Step 2: Under the "Accounts overview" section, go to "Services" then click on the link next to Delete profile and social features. Step 3: Click on the radio button next to Delete Google+ content and then check the box next to Required, then finally click on the Remove selected services button. You'll no longer have access to Google+ and all of your content will be removed "over the next few days." Most importantly, your Gmail, Google Docs, Google Calendar, and other Google services will remain untouched.
