According to former Facebook manager Antonio Garcia Martinez, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg called an emergency meeting and declared lockdown when Google+ was launched.
In his book, Martinez disclosed that the team received an e-mail at around 1.45 PM on the day Google Plus was launched and asked them to assemble near the Aquarium. Interestingly, it is the glass-walled cube room said to be that of Zuckerberg.
The e-mail contained specific instructions asking them to assemble around the Lockdown sign, which was a neon LED sign symbol on the top of the glass cube. By the time the entire team assembled inside the room, the sign was illuminated. They guessed the upcoming launch to be that of Google+.
Even though Google+ was launched, it never gained as much popularity as Facebook. The book “Chaos Monkeys: Obscene Fortune and Random Failure in Silicon Valley,” is expected to hit the retail stores on June 28, 2016. The book is available in both Paperback, Kindle and Audio CD formats.
If you are unaware, Antonio Garcia Martinez served as an advisor to Twitter, a product manager for Facebook, the
CEO/founder of AdGrok. He also works as a strategist for Goldman Sachs and lives on a forty-foot sailboat on the San Francisco Bay.
