Mark Zuckerberg has lost his top position as the most popular user at Google Plus, after he chose to quit the social networking platform altogether.

According to The Inquirer (opens in new tab), Mark Zuckerberg shut down his profile at rival company’s Google Plus on Wednesday much to the disappointment of his 21,213 fan followers and 39 friends.

The shutdown move has been observed with several other Google top shots who were also untraceable. The executives included chief executive officer Larry Page, the man behind Google’s most ambitious attempt at social networking so far, Vic Gundotra and other top management executives such as Matt Cutts, Marissa Mayer, and Sergey Brin.

All the changes so far have been informed by Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten. the compiler of statistics on social networking websites. He even went on to comment that Zuckerberg cares for his own privacy rather than the users of Facebook.

"Mark Zuckerberg and Google management changed their profiles overnight and consequently dropped out of the Google+ top 100 list! Robert Scoble, Kevin Rose, Leo Laporte are the new top 3. Zuckerberg and management at Google all gone. Congratulations!" stated Boris Veldhuijzen van Zanten.
