Google+: Facebook Rival or Failure?

www.fulcrumdirect.co.uk [cached]

In 2012, Google's former Engineering Director James Whittaker wrote a blog post about why he decided to leave the company, despite his previous passion for the role.
Whittaker felt that Google's products had become a means to an end, and that end was creating the tools needed to collect as much personal information as possible about its users.

People aren't using it like they are Facebook, and James Whittaker, a top Google engineer who just quit, published a blustery letter singling out Google+ as a failure for the company as a product, and as a vision.

James Whittaker
James Whittaker Microsoft James Whittaker's career spans academia, start-ups and top tech companies and starts in 1986 as the first computer science graduate hired by the FBI. James then worked as a freelance developer, most notably for IBM, Ericsson, SAP, Cisco and Microsoft, specializing in test automation. He joined the faculty at the Florida Institute of Technology where he continued his prolific publication record in software testing and security. In 2002 his security work was spun off by the university into a startup which was later acquired by Raytheon. James' first stint at Microsoft was in Trustworthy Computing and Visual Studio. He then joined Google as an engineering director and led teams working on Chrome, Maps and Google+. In 2012 James rejoined Microsoft. James is known for being a creative and passionate leader and sought after speaker and author. Of his five books two have been Jolt Award finalists. Follow him on Twitter @docjamesw.

With Google's desperate leap into social media with the mostly deserted Google+ combined with it's obvious decline in service quality and increase in prices, the reasons why James Whittaker resigned from Google to go work for Microsoft will come to no surprise.
