Google Plus is growing at a high rate. Since its implementation in June, initially on an invite-only basis, it has collected 50 million users; this is a 16th of Facebook’s users. On November 7th, Google Plus began allowing businesses to host profiles (i.e. pages), whereas before, it was only individual user profiles. Google Plus is another means, like Facebook and Twitter, for businesses to get the word out about their brand, products, and services; Google Plus’ new business pages means a lot to the world of search engine optimization.
