The company also eliminated the Google social layer; users no longer needed a Google profile to share content and communicate with contacts.The transition began with You Tube, where a Google profile was no longer required to create, upload, or comment on a channel, but a Google page was instead required.Google 's user base was roughly 60% male and 25% female as of November 2013, and 15% "other" or unknown.
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".
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.
