Meta Workplace Shutdown Sparks Question: Will Google sunset Google Sites?

Introduction

The recent news of Meta discontinuing its Workplace platform has sent ripples through the business world, prompting a pointed question from one of our valued customers: “With Meta shutting down Workplace, can I be confident that Google won’t deprecate Google Sites?”

This concern is understandable, especially in light of the fact that our platform, Steegle.One, leverages the power of Google Sites and Google Workspace to create robust intranet solutions for businesses across various sectors. Our clients, ranging from small businesses to large enterprises, rely on Google Sites daily as a core part of their operations, not merely as a “freebie” tool.

Why This Question Matters More Than Ever

The question of platform longevity is crucial for businesses that invest time, resources, and trust in a digital solution. The unexpected demise of Workplace, as well as past decisions by Google to discontinue consumer products like Google Currents (formerly Google+), serves as a stark reminder that even established platforms can be discontinued, leaving users scrambling for alternatives.

Steegle.One’s 16-Year Perspective on Google Sites

At Steegle.One, we’ve been working with Google Sites since its inception in 2008. We’ve witnessed its evolution firsthand, from a basic website builder to a versatile tool that powers intranets, project hubs, knowledge bases, and more. Our deep understanding of Google Sites, combined with our expertise in Google Workspace, allows us to create custom solutions that meet the unique needs of each client.

Why We’re Confident in Google Sites’ Future

Despite the changing tech landscape and past discontinuations of certain Google products, we remain steadfast in our belief that Google Sites is here to stay. Here’s why:

Strategic Pillar of Google Workspace:

Google Sites is not an isolated product; it’s a core component of Google Workspace, the suite of productivity tools that millions of businesses rely on daily. Google’s continued investment in Workspace indicates a strong commitment to its growth and development, including Google Sites.

Versatility and Adaptability:

Unlike Workplace, which targeted a specific niche, and consumer-focused products like Google Currents, Google Sites is a versatile tool that serves a wide range of business needs. It can be adapted to various use cases, from simple internal websites to complex intranets with advanced features. This flexibility makes it a valuable tool for businesses across diverse industries.

Proven Track Record and Innovation:

Google Sites has a long and successful history of serving businesses reliably. It has consistently evolved to meet the changing needs of users, adding new features, templates, and integrations to enhance its capabilities. Google’s commitment to innovation ensures that Sites remains a relevant and valuable tool for years to come.
