The man behind Google+ is out at Google

Google Plus Boss Vic Gundotra Leaving Google

Big changes may be coming to Google+. As Re/Code reports, former Google+ boss Vic Gundotra will be leaving Google after eight years at the company. Re/Code’s sources say that Google has appointed Google+ vice president of engineering David Besbris to take Gundotra’s place, which means that the company passed over Google+ product boss Bradley Horowitz, whom Re/Code describes as “Gundotra’s top lieutenant.” Re/Code’s sources didn’t give any indication about why Gundotra might be leaving the company, although the report does say that his departure will have “wider repercussions on what’s next for Google+.”
