Head of Google+ Reportedly Quit His Job

/ 3 years ago


In April 2014, David Besbris rose up to be the head of Google+, having said back in October 2014 that Google had long-term plans for its social media platform. However, less than a year since then, Besbris reportedly quit his job and has been replaced by Bradley Horowitz who has been with Google+ from the start.

Besbris has been the successor of Vic Gundrota, the previous head of Google+ before April 2014, having won the job against Horowitz. During this time, Besbris did not detail what we would expect from Google+. However, Horowitz is said to already have given plenty to the public through Sundar Pichai, Google senior vice president of products, at the Mobile World Congress.

Pichai stated that Google would focus on communications, photos and the Google+ Stream separately, instead of considering them as a package. This means that photos and hangouts would be moving away from Google+. While Horowitz stated on his own Google+ page that he along with his team are working around the clock to bring a lot of changes, it seems that it would be rather hard since the Google+ team of around 1,000 is now half the size.
