Are you tired of logging in to your Google+ profile to manage your business/brand page?
Do you remember the option of Converting Your Personal Account to a Page on Facebook? How good would it be to have a similar option for Google+ pages too?
It is time for expressig your excitement. Google has come up with an option to set up individual username and pasword for your page. Though, this option is not exactly as Facebook's option. In fact, it is more open and comfortable.
PHEW! You can now sign in directly to your page instead of signing in to a profile that owns or manages the page.
Moreover, you can take advantage of third party tools that link to your Google account, start/launch Google+ Hangouts as a page, use other Google services from a single sign in, and more…
