Google+ Business Profiles Coming Soon

Christian Oestlien, product manager for Google+, took to YouTube to bring everyone up to speed on where Google+ for business stands.  A few weeks ago, Google+ asked interested people to apply to be part of a business profile limited test program.  Tens of thousands of businesses, charities and other organizations applied for the program.  Due to the overwhelming response, Google has decided to accelerate their plans and open Google+ business profiles to everyone at the same time, in the next few months. Some businesses too anxious to wait for the real thing have already created business profiles using regular profiles on Google+, which Oestlien advises against.  Instead, find a  real person who is willing to represent your organization as themselves on Google+.  Regular profiles being used as business profiles will be disabled.
