Researcher jumps from Google to Facebook

Internet giant Google has now lost another of its most talented researchers, with senior user experience researcher Paul Adams announcing he will move to Facebook.

The move comes as several of Google’s most experienced researchers have opted for the smaller Facebook, where many feel they are able to escape an accused “corporate culture” at Google.

According to a tweet published on Adams’ official feed, he will be moving to the social network in 2011.

The move is especially surprising, as it comes after Adams presented a lengthy slideshow recently about the troubles with modern social networks that was presented at the Voices That Matter Web Design Conference.
