Bradley Horowitz, the vice president of product for Google+ since 2008, has reportedly been named the head of Google’s social network.

Bradley Horowitz updated his LinkedIn profile.

According to TechCrunch, Horowitz has replaced David Besbris, who has been in charge of Google+ for less than a year.

It’s not clear what Google’s plans are — the company did not immediately respond to a VentureBeat request for comment — but if recent signals are correct, it could be that Google+ will be losing some of its features.

In an interview with Forbes, Google product czar Sundar Pichai suggested that Google+ could be broken up over time. Many people think the search giant has all but lost the social networking battle to Facebook.
