Google Plus Business Pages Now Open
Finally, businesses are being invited to participate in the new Google+ Pages program.
Starting today and continuing over the next two days, businesses will be able to create Google+ pages using the Create A Page tool (as long as they already have a regular Google+ account).
Starting at the create a page point you’ll be asked to create a page in one of five categories:
- Local Business or Place
- Product or Brand
- Company, Institution or Organization
- Arts, Entertainment or Sports
You can do many of the same things that a personal account can do, including:
- Share photos
- Share videos
- Share links
- Conduct Hangouts
I started to create my own Google+ Business Page but as it’s past 1.00am now I haven’t had time to complete it fully nor delve into the ins and outs but there’s a more detailed description of Google+ Business from Danny Sullivan at Search Engine Land in this post.
