Make that Google plus its CEO.

Google’s chief executive, Larry Page, is back posting to the public on the Internet search giant’s social networking service Google+.

‘Just back from our Zeitgeist conference. I am very inspired by the other speakers. Here is a link to my talk with Eric and I doing general questions at the end. Big responsibilities and opportunities ahead!’


He embedded the video and threw in a link.

The bit of self promotion fetched 261 comments including: ‘holy you r back?’ and ‘nice to see you back on G+.’

Page has nearly a half a million followers on Google+. He created a stir when he stopped posting on Google+, at least nothing for public consumption.

Seems like a shrewd public relations move to stay active on the service. Bradley Horowitz, Google’s vice president of products, recently told Wired magazine that ‘Google+ is Google itself.’

‘We’re extending it across all that we do — search, ads, Chrome, Android, Maps, YouTube -- so that each of those services contributes to our understanding of who you are,’ he told Steven Levy.
