5 days ago Google announced that the Google+ pages is now available for businesses and companies who wants to have their presence felt in the Google+ universe (you can read their announcement here). Google announced that there will be a global roll-out, so it took sometime for G+ Pages to be available to some people (including me).
I have also created a G+ page for Teknisyan (add it on your circle if you’re on G+) and if you’re familiar with the process of creating a Facebook pages then you shouldn’t have any problem your G+ pages.
Google+ pages acts like individual or personal G+ account, similar to FB Pages, G+ Pages has it’s own stream, profile and section of photos but the difference stops there, on G+ Pages you get to have your own sets of circles and will be able to create a hang-out which when put it on FB pages terms, you will not be able to do video call or even chat.
Anyway, I’m still in the process of exploring the different features of the new Google+ pages and will write about that soon. If you like to create your own Google+ page, you can go to to plus.google.com/pages/create then just follow the bouncing ball err.. I mean the steps that you will see on the screen.
Google+ will be a took for social media strategist and it’s still unknown on how companies will use their G+ pages, since it gives them more ways to connect to customers and fans, which is not available on Facebook Pages at this time.
