Saved Searches are handy for tapping into your favourite streams on Google+ in a click, whether you want to check on the latest developments with the #googleplusupdate saved search, or checking out the latest GIFs with #caturday. Unfortunately though, the feature is to be retired on November 15th in a move that isn't immediately clear.

"Saved searches are going away. Bookmark this page on your browser to save your Google+ search for later."
The message also links to a Learn More page with instructions how you can carry on saving searches using a workaround which still does the trick, but isn't as effortless as the now defunct feature (the saved search button have since been removed from searches).
To put a positive spin on the news, Google could have a trick up its sleeve and may introduce a new feature that replaces the functionality with something more user-friendly, but we'll have to play the waiting game before we find out.
Do you use saved searches? What do you think of its demise?
