    A few nitpicky comments:

    (1) According to Google, echoed by the NYT, there was no “security breach”, just a vulnerability, as no data was actually leaked and no-one was aware of the vulnerability.

    (2) What does “recent Facebook hack” refer to? I assume, like in the NYT article, it refers to the Cambridge Analytica incident? However, there was no “hack” there, just inappropriate handling of data.

    (3) “Google are playing down the significance of the breach.” — What is this statement based upon?

    To expand on my grammar correction: Shutdown as one word is a noun, e.g. “the shutdown of Google+.” As a verb phrase you need a space between the verb and its preposition so that it can conjugated, e.g. ” is shutting down,” which, come to think of it looks better than “is to shutdown” in the body since it is already happening, not something to come.
