Your business or brand is one stepper closer to having its own page on Google+. Users will soon be able to “hang out live with the local bike shop, or discuss our wardrobe with a favorite clothing line” once the mass rollout of “Pages” happens. The G+ team introduced them today, but only for a handful of companies as a test group of sorts.
Full availability to everyone is on the way, but we haven’t been given a specific time frame. Update: Pages are open for business now. Sign-up here. Droid Life page here.
I’m most definitely interested in seeing how companies plan to use services like Hangouts to interact with customers. This could be highly beneficial for local business, but also for bigger companies looking shed the corporate shield and get more personal with their supporters.
On a related note, with the creation of Google+ Pages, you will start to see them show up in Google Search results when searching for a particular company.
There is a chance that we will make a DL-specific page at some point, but for now, you can get the latest right here.
