Google has finally launched branded pages for Google+, allowing businesses join Google’s social network.
Vic Gundotra had this to say about the new business pages in her blog post. “So far Google+ has focused on connecting people with other people,” “But we want to make sure you can build relationships with all the things you care about—from local businesses to global brands—so today we’re rolling out Google+ Pages worldwide.”
"For businesses and brands, Google+ pages help you connect with the customers and fans who love you. Not only can they recommend you with a +1, or add you to a circle to listen long-term. They can actually spend time with your team, face-to-face-to-face. All you need to do is start sharing, and you'll soon find the super fans and loyal customers that want to say hello."
The new Google+ busisness pages look similar to Google+ Profiles, except for the little square icon that designates that it’s a Page rather than a Profile. Users can addbrands to their circles. Obviously these will function much like Facebook Pages instead of fans businesses will pick up followers.
