Google’s chief executive Larry Page said in a new interview that the company has “no plans” to make a “superior version” of its popular social network.
Page said he doesn’t “believe” Google+ will be a “perfect” social network and that the social network is “probably a lot more important than we ever imagined.”
“I don’t think it’s a superior version,” he said.
“We don’t need all the bells and whistles we think they’re going to be, and I don’t want to be the one who says ‘yes, we need this.’
I don?t believe we do.
We have no plans at this time to have it be better.”
In an interview with Bloomberg, Page said that while the company is working on “enhancing” its social network, the company doesn’t have “anything in the pipeline” that would give it “superpowers” that other social networks have.
“Google+ is really important, and it’s not the kind of thing that we’ve focused on doing on a lot of the features that we have on the social side,” he told Bloomberg.
“Google+ does more than Facebook, so I don?”t want to get all worked up about that.
I just don?m not really that interested in all that stuff.
I don ?t want people to think, ‘oh, Google+ is super great because it has so many features.’
Google is also working on its own standalone social network called Google+ that was launched in 2010 and has gained popularity among many of the top Internet companies.
The social network isn?
t expected to launch until sometime in 2020.
