Now the platform not only enables companies to create pages, but also encourages businesses to grow their following.• Individuals can add a brand to a specific Google+ Circle, share a Google+ page with their network, +1 (or in other words, endorse) the updates a company publishes, leave comments, upload photos, and tag the brand in them• Video chat is definitely the element that distinguishes Google+ from other existing social network. The Hangouts feature enables companies to engage with fans, and customers through video conference calls.

  7. 7. Setting Up Your Business Profile Enter your Country and phone number. If you have a Google Places account already set up (we did) Google will locate it for you. If you link your Google Places account to your Google+ Business page, by default your "tagline" (the sentence below your page name) will be your address. You will then be directed to upload a profile photo. This can be a bit frustrating as Google wants to crop your logo. If you have a wide logo (like we do) you may want to consider using an favicon or icon.
  8. 8. Setting Up Your Business ProfileGoogle will now give you the opportunity to share by telling everyone in yourcircles about your new business page.
