Google hires founder of controversial 4chan

Analysts say this could be yet another stab at making Google+ interesting.

Jeff Kagan, an independent analyst, said if Poole is heading to Google+ it could at least stir up some much-needed interest, from both the public and the media, in the site.

"Google has only seen limited success with Google+," he added. "We must remember that as large and strong as Google is, success is possible, but not a certainty, with social. Google obviously thinks Poole can help them with new thinking."

This new hire, according to Kagan, is another stab at making Google+ successful.

"Let's see if this move makes any difference," he said.
