Breaking up is hard to do. Don’t do it.
Sundar Pichai, SVP pf Products at Google, and “defacto Number 2 man” says in an exclusive interview with Forbes that Google may be considering separating photos and Hangouts from the Google+ stream.
Many have speculated about that, but this is the first official nod from Google.
Pichai also admits that Google has done a lousy job of marketing the platform. Yup, that’s absolutely true!
Seems to me that major steps in the right direction should be:
* uncomplicating Hangouts drastically,
* adding the HOA features those of us who are power users have repeatedly requested,
* and hiring people who actually use the platform to market it in order to eliminate these pervasive myths
Please NOTE: Sundar Pichai Larry Page: I am immediately available to assist with multi-channel marketing of Google+ and can put together a crackerjack team in a matter of days :)
