The Android mobile software creator for Google, Andy Rubin, left the company in 2014 after an investigation into an allegation of an inappropriate relationship with a subordinate proved to be credible. Details about the exit are included in a report on October 25, 2018 by The New York Times which says that Google paid Rubin a $90 million exit package. This was "Not Okay" with employees of Google and they staged a multi-nation walkout on November 1, 2018. The walkout was in protest to Google’s handling of Andy Rubin’s exit package as well as over 45 additional sexual harassment claims over the years.
In March, 2018, Google discovered that personal information belonging to as many as 500,000 Google+ users had been exposed. They did not relay this discovery to the general public until October of 2018! Google+ is Google’s attempt at social media marketing that never did rise to the popularity of Facebook. The service never rallied much of a following or seriously challenged the top player in social networking.
