Google has rolled out Google+ Pages worldwide for Businesses.
We have created a page for us – SocialNetGate Google+ page
Google+ Pages provides businesses, products, brands, and organizations with a public identity and presence on Google+. Five categories of pages that can be created are :
- Product or Brand
- Company, Institution or Organization
- Local Business or Place
- Arts, Entertainment or Sports
Google+ pages interact in the Google+ world similar to the way that regular Google+ profile owners do – they can add people to circles, edit their profile, share things in Google+, +1 comments and photos, and create and join Hangouts. But they’re not entirely the same.
Differences between Google+ Pages and Google+ Profiles
Pages are extremely similar to profiles, but they have some key differences:
Pages can’t add people to circles until the page is added first or mentioned. Learn more.
Pages can be made for a variety of different entities whereas profiles can only be made for people.
The default privacy setting for elements on your page profile is public.
Pages have the +1 button.
Pages can’t +1 other pages, nor can they +1 stuff on the Web.
Pages can’t play games.
Pages don’t have the option to share to ‘Extended circles’.
Pages don’t receive notifications via email, text, or in the Google bar.
Pages can’t hangout on a mobile device.
Local pages have special fields that help people find the business’ physical location.
If you’re unsure whether you’re viewing a page or an individual’s profile, look for the Google+ Pages icon next to the name at the top of the page.
