Has Larry Page Stopped Using Google+?

In what could be termed as a potentially damaging outcome for the image of the search giant’s latest venture into the world of social networking, it has been reported that Google CEO Larry Page has himself not accessed his Google Plus profile for over a month.

The beta testing of Google plus was launched some three months back amidst huge anticipation, with the site being made open for the public on invitation-only basis.

It seems like all the excitement and anticipation amongst the fans are slowly and gradually diminishing.

Mr. Page joined Google+ immediately after it was unveiled, posting congratulatory remarks to his team for the successful launch of the site. Much to the glory of the entire team behind the site, it registered over 10 million users within just 3 weeks of the launch of the beta testing.

When asked about Mr. page’s apparent lack of interest in his own site, a Google spokesperson responded by saying: “We don't comment on individual profiles, but it's important to keep in mind that sharing activity can be taking place privately to circles,” Dailymail (opens in new tab) reports.

'As we've shared before, we're seeing that people are two to three times more likely to share content with one of their circles than to make a public post,” he added.
