UPDATE 6 March 2014
The original infographic contained a quote from Larry Page. This quote was sourced from BL Ochman’s article 5 Pervasive Myths about Google+. Additional details on the origin of this statement can by found by Ochman in the comments of this Google+ post. After learning that this was a paraphrased statement rather than a quote, we have opted to remove the quote from the infographic.
