Minus One for Google+ as Vic Gundotra leaves – What Comes Next?

Where Google+ heads next is the universal thought spread after Vic Gundotra, the head of platform has announced his exit from Google. The platform though surviving as a back-stage of Google has been doing fairly well for business as well as social circles. In the last reports, Vic reported 540 million active users, which apparently describes a well grown state of Google+.

What’s next for Google+?

Vic Gundotra has been associated with Google+ for past 8 years known as the father of this social product. Now that he parts ways with Google, sall wish to know who will take charge of the products that he has directed for years. Expected changes include following:

  • Sources tell that the customary requirement of Google+ integration for Google products may no longer be there
  • Google is supposed to be reshuffling about 1000 of its employees (the core of Google+ team) but there is no formal announcement on who’s taking his place. Only Gmail will continue to have it.

Google+ has been making number of efforts in recent past to offer better user experience with introduction of new elements and features. Yet again the search giant seems determined to focus on its users, as is evident from a remark by one of its representatives;

“Today’s news has no impact on our Google+ strategy — we have an incredibly talented team that will continue to build great user experiences across Google+, Hangouts and Photos.”

Ably Soft views this moment as catalyst and hopes that the further journey of Google+ opens more avenues for social bees who are there to broaden their circles. Our Social Media experts view this as an important point for Googlers who love to broaden their circles as many positive developments are expected.
