Google+ shows its another weakness as it bombarded its users with duplicate notifications because of the limitation of disk which is responsible for holding the notifications data. It is being seen as a blow to Google+ at its start because there is already a great competition going on between Facebook, Twitter and itself.
Google came up with an explanation on this and the Chief of Google+ not only apologized to the users of the new social networking platform but also gave a reason for this. He said that for about 80 minutes Google+ ran out of space on the disk which is responsible for tracking records of notifications and the system tried again and again to notify the users about recent activity resulting in numerous duplicate notifications.
For about 80 minutes we ran out of disk space on the service that keeps track of notifications. Hence our system continued to try sending notifications. Over, and over again. Yikes.
We didn’t expect to hit these high thresholds so quickly, but we should have.
Google is huge company which prevails all over the world and the experts are of the view that this event will not affect the company much badly as Google enjoys the ability to launch new concepts, offer different schemes and attractive services for the users.
Google+ gained a huge attention from all over the world and according to Mr. Eric Schmidt, they attained millions of users in less than two weeks. It is anticipated that Google will add some more services and attractive features in its social networking platform to gain more attention and beat past other competitors.
