Google+ Pages Now Available Nov 7, 2011

Recently, we started a poll to find out whether you want to enable Google+ on our family sites. There's another Google+ upgrade we think you should know about.
To connect with people, places and things we care about, we (read family group or online team) can create a Google+ Page. With the new roll-out, there are now two ways to add pages to circles from Google search. Google+ Pages will be indexed on Google search results, but you can also jump straight to the Google+ Page of a business simply typing "+" followed by the business name. Learn more about Direct Connect in the Google Help Center here.

If you want to get started for your business or brand, check out the Google+ Your Business Page; put it in your Circles, and monitor updates because the platform is expected to shift rapidly. It appears that Google+ Business Pages can have only one owner for now.

Google+ launched over 100 days ago and is currently boasting 40M users and 3.4B photos uploaded. To join Google+, start here.
