Sergey and I founded Google because we believed that building a great search experience would improve people’s lives and, hopefully, the world. And in the decade-plus that’s followed, we’ve been constantly delighted by the ways in which people have used our technology—such as making an artificial limb using old designs discovered online.
Last April, I began by reorganizing the management team around our core products to improve responsibility and accountability across Google. I also kicked off a big clean-up. Google has so many opportunities that, unless we make some hard choices, we end up spreading ourselves too thin and don’t have the impact we want. So we have closed or combined over 30 products, including projects like Knol and Sidewiki. In addition, we gave many of our products, such as Google Search, a visual refresh, and they now have a cleaner, more consistent, and beautiful look.
As an example Google Places is a great concept, but it is so poorly implemented that it borders on being useless.
If you want to attract people to your shiny object and have them use it, it has to actually be shiny.

Seems that Goolge plus is nothing but a plus to google.
Facebook focus guides Google CEO's 1st year on job

Google + is dead.
I don't know anyone who uses it and I have teen age kids.
