Facebook and Google are rivals for some time, but in recent weeks, confrontations increased with the advent of Google + . Direct competition between social networks has gained the attention of Internet users, while the managers used to heat the air with sharp words.
Larry Page Hours ago was responsible for throwing heavy ammunition to Mark Zuckerberg and company . The CEO of the company finder to explain why the people would have to switch to Google + and used the occasion to criticize Facebook again by the lack of tools for data portability
This was the declaration of a director Google : “We’re excited because Google + enhances the social experience in whole and allows users to share content as if they did in real life. It is different from what is currently available. [...] People really like the opportunity to share with discrete groups more intuitively. [...] Google as a company believe in owning your data and users have the ability to go easily from our services. Some of our competitors do not believe it. We believe that users will eventually move to services that fit their best interests and that works really well “.
Page clearly refers to Facebook
in this statement when he speaks of his “competitors”. It is worth remembering that the social network created by Mark Zuckerberg has a restrictive method that allows you to export user data for use in other services. Google also had this option until it filed Takeout
, a tool that lets users take their information to other platforms. There is no doubt that these are the first shots of a close war between Google and Facebook +. Prepare for cross-word between these two powerful corporations are just beginning, and replication should not be delayed too Zuckerberg
Finally the great day for Larry Page . As of this morning, Google co-founder officially took over of the post of CEO of the corporation. In this way the charge was supplied by Eric Schmidt, who served as executive director since August 2001. A new era for the company?
last January had released the information which indicated that as of April 4 the most important position of the leadership would be in the hands of Page. And in recent times updated the Google corporate information to enforce the change of hands in the direction . id=”more-14576″>
From now on, then Larry Page will appear in the “credits” as co-founder and CEO
, while Eric Schmidt
will remain affiliated with the Mountain View company as CEO, and will be responsible for large-scale negotiations
. It’s clear that the intention of Californians is to leverage the presence of former CEO as you can.
Remember that Barack Obama administration Schmidt tempted to take charge of the Ministry of Commerce, but the executive decided to stay at Google for collaborating in making major decisions . And we must not forget Sergey Brin , the other member of this successful triumvirate.
Russian-born businessman remains in simply listed as co-founder, but plays an important role in the development of new projects . At present, for example, Brin is one of the prime movers in the creation a broadband network to 1 GB in Kansas City
Like many celebrities, Mark Zuckerberg has his fan page on Facebook that often publish and keep in touch with other users of the popular social network in the world. However, yesterday a message appeared on the wall that raised several suspicions .
few minutes after rumors were confirmed: a hacker had joined in . But what is surprising is that so far the page is “down” (as you can see in the capture above). For those who could not read what was published in the profile Zuckerberg, they are copied below with your translation . id=”more-13807″>
“Let the hacking begin: If facebook Needs money, INSTEAD of going to the banks, ITS Why does not Facebook let users invest in Facebook in a social way? Why not transform Facebook Into a ‘social business’ the way Nobel Price winner Muhammad Yunus Described it? http://bit.ly/fs6rT3 What do you think? # Hackercup2011.

Translated into Castilian would be: “ hacking begins: if Facebook needs money, instead of going to banks, why not allow them to invest into a form social? Why not turn Facebook into a “social business”, as described by Nobel Prize winner Muhammad Yunus? What do you think? “
Seconds after the publication of this message, over a thousand people had pressed on the “Me Gusta” and had nearly 500 comments . Of course, the vast majority of respondents were insults.
What is more surprising is that almost 24 hours after this happened the official website of Mark Zuckerberg continues to fall, and since Facebook provided no further explanation . To keep you informed of any new development.
