Social and Mobile, Larry Page, Google Chief

As the news published by Agence France Presse at San Franscisco on April
7 of 2012, Google co-founder Larry Page on Thursday said that this first
year back at the company’s helm has been marked by big bets on social
networking and mobile gadgets. Page marked the anniversary of his return
as chief executive of the Internet colossus by sharing his thoughts in a
letter posted at Google+ social network. "Since becoming CEO again, I’ve
pushed hard to increase our velocity, improve our exacution, and focus
on the big bets that will make a difference in the world, Larry Page
said. "Top of my priority list has been creating a simpler, more
intuitive experience across all our products so users get exactly what
they need, right when they want it."
Page told of reorganizing Google’s management team to improve
accountability and kicking off ‘a big clean-up’ that resulted in the
elimination or consolidation of more than 30 products. Many of Google’s
remaining products, such as its globally popular search service, were
given cleaner, consistent and ‘beautiful looks’, according to Page.
Page has made a priority of weaving budding Google+ network into the
company’s other properties such as Search, Gmail, YouTube in what some
onlookers have branded an obsession with challenging Facebook. He
bragged in his letter that Google+ has more than 100 million users and
the amount of activity at the social networking service is ramping up.
Page described Android operating system for Smartphones and tablet
computers as being ‘on fire’ with more than 850,000 devices activated
daily. More than 350 milion people use Gmail and the number of people
using YouTube monthly tops 800 million, according to Google. " People
rightly ask ho we’ll make money from these big bets," Page said. "Over
time, our emerging high-usage products we likely generate significant
new revenue streams for Google as well as for our partners, just as
search does today."
He gave the example of mobile advertising having a ‘hugely positive’
effect on revenue. Recent privacy policy changes to let user data be
shared between Google services, while controversial, have led to a
‘better, more intuitive’ experience, Page contended. Google rolled out
its new privacy policy in March allowing the firm to track users across
various services to develop targeted advertising, despite sharp
criticism from US and European consumer advocacy groups. The Mountain
View California-based firm said the chances are designed to improve the
user experience accross Google products and give the firm a more
integrated view of its users, an advantage enjoyed by Apple and
Facebook. Critics including European privacy agencies and US consumer
watchdogs argued the new policy, which offers no ability to opt out
aside from refraining from signing into Google services, gives the
Internet giant unprecedented ability to monitor its users.
