Google looking to hire ‘Head of Social’

on May 11, 2010 | Google | Comments (0)

Google has hired an executive recruiter to look for a ‘Head of Social’ chief.

Google has been particularly slow in the social front. Services such as Orkut never took off, and Google Buzz caused much criticism post launch.

According to reports this position has been given 2 important tasks to seek out:

1. building an innovative offering specifically in this area;

or

2. developing the capability and integrating social into Google’s existing portfolio.

Will be interesting to see what line Google takes in the social area and if they can innovate this space like many others they have.
