Business profiles with analytics launching in Q3
Business owners will have to be patient for a little while longer, as Google announced that the Google+ experience will be launched for businesses in or shortly after Q3 of 2011. While some businesses have jumped the gun and are using their personal Google+ accounts for their business, they will soon find out that doing things this way was not the best idea. Google is not allowing these accounts to be migrated into a new business account so merchants will have to start at the beginning again. The new business-friendly model will include analytics and more sophisticated sharing options. “We want to give them the features businesses expect and the features that can improve the sharing experience both for consumers and businesses,” said a Google spokesperson.
