Alphabet CEO Larry Page, Google's parent company, has largely withdrawn from the company's day-to-day management and spent more time on a private island in the Caribbean, Bloomberg's Business Weekly website said today. Up.
Page's "disappearance" caused widespread concern in the industry last week because he did not attend a congressional hearing. With Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey in double seats, the seats next to them were empty, with only the brand name "Google," which was originally Page's seat.
In fact, Alphabet employees and Google's sister companies were aware of Page's gradual exit from the company's day-to-day management, the report said.
In recent months, Google has been re-introduced into the public eye, becoming one of the main forces to combat false information on the Internet and foreign forces interfering in the U.S. presidential election. But at the same time, Google was also criticized by President Donald.
Trump posted a message on Twitter late last month accusing Google of manipulating search results, saying any search results about Trump were "bad news". Trump also said that searching for Trump News in Google, 96% of the results came from left-wing media across the country, and Google and other companies are suppressing the voice of the Conservatives, hiding positive information and news.
BusinessWeek reports that Page has not released new products for the company in the past five years, and has not received media interviews in the past three years. According to Google employees, he has essentially dropped out of the company's day-to-day operations, focusing only on rare projects that interest him, such as those at Alphabet X Labs.
Of course, he occasionally attends Friday's "TGIF" general meeting, but anyway, he spends more and more time on a private island in the Caribbean Sea. (Li Ming)
