Google is to shut down its Slide social networking platform just one year after acquiring the company, and will migrate subscribers to other Google social and file-sharing platforms.
Slide founder Max Levchin has confirmed that he will be leaving Google.
"We created products with the goal of providing a fun way for people to connect, communicate and share," he said in a statement.
"While we are incredibly grateful to our users and for all of the wonderful feedback over the years, many of these products are no longer as active or haven't caught on as we originally hoped."
Google acquired the social networking and gaming platform for a reported $200m, and the companies said at the time that Slide could become an integral part of several Google web services.
Recently, however, Google has shifted its attention and resources to the launch of the Google+ social networking service.
Google will dissolve Slide, according to a report from AllThingsD, but will attempt to keep many of the firm's employees. The Slide services will be phased out.
Slide said that it will help to migrate user data to other Google services, and will begin allowing users to download slide photos to a local machine or transfer them to Google's Picasa photo-sharing service.
