Recently Google Inc launched a new service known as Google+ As most of Google’s products it started with invitation only service. But that did not stopped the server space to run out within two weeks or so. This made the server repeatedly send notifications and i spammed the Google+ users.
The Google+ senior vice president Vic Gundotra admitted “Please accept our apologies for the spam we caused this afternoon,” he wrote on his Google+ page. “For about 80 minutes we ran out of disk space on the service that keeps track of notifications. Hence our system continued to try sending notifications. Over, and over again. Yikes.”
It was a bit surprising to see a company like Google facing a issue like this. And this is not the first time Google messed up. It deleted some mails of some poor Gmail users, the whole Google Buzz privacy issue. I really hope that in future Google wont make such careless mistakes with its upcoming online services.
