Some management changes afoot at G+. After less than a year there is a new person in charge of the product.

This is interesting, and somewhat suggests that the earlier reports of Google+ being split up into separate areas.


I think increasingly you’ll see us focus on communications [Hangouts], photos and the Google+ stream as three important areas, rather than being thought of as one area. [webmasterworld.com]

Just wanted to confirm that the rumors are true -- I’m excited to be running Google’s Photos and Streams products! Bradley Horowitz [plus.google.com]

Yes, very interesting.

I'm curious to know what affect, if any, this will have on Google My Business and G+ Local pages.

GMB just got a complete photo upgrade. And Places fairly recently merged with Google+. So I hope this does not change things too much again.

We're getting a bit dizzy over here in Google Local Land.
