Facebook completely dismisses Google+

Facebook logoWhile there's been a lot of talk about the fate of Facebook now that Google+ is up and kicking, Facebook says it really doesn't care.

At a recent event at the social network's California headquarters, Facebook's Sean Ryan said, "We don’t spend a lot of time worrying about [Google]; we worry about us," as quoted by Gamasutra.

Facebook completely dismisses Google+"Developers should go where they think they can make the most money," Ryan noted.

Of course, as an online powerhouse Google has been threatened by Facebook practically since day one, and since then it has been a game of the two giants trying to one-up each other.

"What I’d say is in classic fashion Google has emulated our system, which is what they’re inclined to do. And we just need to be better as a platform. At the end of the day, people will go to what they thing is the right platform," Ryan said.

One of the issues that came up during the discussion was the revenue models of Google+ and Facebook. The latter takes 30% of all monies spent on games and any other transactions that take place within Facebook.com.

Meanwhile, Google+ only keeps 5% of revenue earned by developers, which is quite an enormous difference.

Google+ just recently added a social gaming platform, which could spell big competition for Facebook, especially considering Google's much more developer-favorable revenue system.

However, Facebook still isn't worried, and championed itself as being "the most open platform around."

"We’re not an investor in Zynga like Google is, or like Google is in Kabam, or an owner of Slide. We’re not. We’re an open platform," Ryan posited.
