Google+ Brand Pages
Vic Gundotra, Google’s Senior Vice President of engineering, was a speaker at the recent Web 2.0 Summit in San Francisco. He reportedly stated that brand pages will be arriving on the platform soon. Adding business pages will only add to the allure of using Google+ both for users and businesses.
This will be great not only for businesses wishing to advertise/promote with a page, but also for users who frequently connect with businesses on social networks such as Facebook. These sort of public platforms allow for both negative and positive reviews which help better the product.
Google+ was launched in June and now claims to have 40 million users. Ford was one of the first brands to try the network for marketing purposes. Over 21,000 people have the Ford test account in their circles. The new pages do not have anything exciting currently, but I’m sure they will be rolling out more updates in the future.
Currently, I am still using Facebook over Google+, but Google has impressed me over the last week or two, and I can’t wait to see what they roll out next.
