Google CEO, Larry Page Criticises Facebook

Google CEO Larry Page had some harsh words for Facebook during a rare interview with Wired published on Thursday.

When asked about Google‘s motivations for competing with Facebook in the social networking space, Page didn’t mince words. “They’re a company that’s strong in that space,” he said. “But they’re also doing a really bad job on their products.”

Page didn’t elaborate on the reasons he thinks the company is doing a bad job, or which products he was referring to in particular, but it is still one of the more direct criticisms Page has leveled against Facebook to date. (In the past, Page has also criticized Facebook for being closed with its data.) The latest remarks happen to come just a couple days after Facebook launched a smarter search engine called Graph Search, which some say could be an early step to competing more directly with Google.

That said, Page noted that Google doesn’t need Facebook to fail as a company in order for it to succeed in social. “We’re actually doing something different,” Page said. “I think it’s outrageous to say that there’s only space for one company in these areas.” The CEO also said that he’s “very happy” with Google+ so far while poking Facebook a little in process: “A lot of it has been copied by our competitors, so I think we’re doing a good job.”
