Up to this point we`ve seen alot of social networking for people utilising Google+ but up to this point it`s been impossible for businesses or brands to utilise Google+ to interact socially as Google has religiously killed of these pages. But via the Official Google Blog they have now announced Google+ Pages which gives businesses and brands the ability to now connect with you socially.

To launch Google+ Pages, Google has setup a Hangout with the Muppets to be held at 11:30am (EDST), you can join them at http://www.youtube.com/GooglePlusHangouts or you can add them to a circle by going to their Google+ page.

If you have a business or brand that you want to add to Google+ just head to http://plus.google.com/pages/create to create your Google+ page and allow your fans to +1 you or contact you.

I`ve referenced some of the more interesting Google+ Pages available :

Google Video on Google+ Pages :

With the introduction of businesses and brands to Google+, Google has started to include Google+ into search results to make it easier to connect with your favourite business, band or even follow info on an upcoming movie, just go to Google and search for [+], followed by the page you’re interested in. It only works for limited businesses and brands at this stage such as : +Google, +Pepsi, and +Toyota, but they promise that more are coming.
