According to a 2016 book by a former Facebook employee, some leaders at Facebook saw Google's foray into social networking as a serious threat to the company.
Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg instituted a company-wide "lockdown", signaling that employees were supposed to dedicate time to bringing Facebook's features into line with Google .
In an interview with Steven Levy published on May 28, 2015, Horowitz said that Google was about to undergo a "huge shift" that would better reflect how the service is actually used.
By that time, two core Google functions, communications and photos, had become standalone services.
Until January 24, 2017, users accessing the site using desktop computers could access some of the discontinued features by selecting option "Back to classic G ".
Consequently, the reported number of active users on Google grew significantly, but the average time those users spent on the site was a small fraction of that on comparable social media services.
In 2011 Google reached 10 million users just two weeks after the launch.
Google Hangouts, Google's communications platform, was announced two years earlier, also at Google I/O.
Google subsequently refocused Google on shared interests, removing features not supporting "an interest-based social experience".
