Google's wary of turning Google+ into a digital cow market with games
It's an important question to ask, especially considering Facebook had to face that question when it turned into a problem, and somewhat suffered for it. While Facebook scrambles to fix its mistakes with a whole team of engineers dedicated to games on the network, Google looks to nip that issue in the bud before it has a chance to harm any potential perception of the network. Sure, that means Google+ is moving at a snail's pace in the games world, but Glazer thinks it better that way.
"We saw equal amounts of anticipation and... people who hoped we never allowed games on Google+," Glazer said on a stage with Facebook product manager Carl Sjogreen. "It's critically important to us that games are successful... There are some people who would find their Timeline incomplete without a lot of games activity," Sjogreen said.
However, as for whether games for Google+ will always be segregated to their own little world, Glazer says don't count it out just yet, though the company's main concern is the user: "Always is a big word. Maybe. It will always be distributed in a way that respects the entire community."
