This may affect with your website outbound links if any.

Are you worried about the post sharing. Dont worry. Google allows to share your recent posts on your local listing pages from Google businesses. So update your users with recent posts from your local listings, maps, directions and reviews.
I don’t think many of us are going to miss Google plus all that much. Surely, there will be something new on the horizon to take it’s place before too long.
