On the occasion of the first anniversary as the chief executive officer, Larry Page shared a letter with Google’s investors. He took over the CEO job at last April after making the announcement in January 2011. You should read the letter for yourself. It is a bit of corporate-speak, but nevertheless it feels like it is from a guy who feels happy with his first 12 months in the job. While reading the letter, some stats caught my eye that are simply staggering, regardless of how one feels about the company.
Of course what would the letter be without the CEO pointing out his achievements. Page wanted to focus the company on social and optimize the operations around fewer products. So it isn’t a surprise that he pointed out that “we have closed or combined over 30 products, including projects like Knol and Sidewiki.”
And as for Google+, the mandate for the company, Page pointed out that there are “over 120 Google+ integrations to date (including Google Search, YouTube and Android), we are on the right track. Well over 100 million users are active on Google+.”
