Google+ For The Enterprise Coming Soon?By: Chris Crum - June 19, 2012
Google+ Vice President of Product Management, Bradley Horowitz, made several interesting announcements related to Google’s social network at the LeWeb London conference. For one, Google+ is coming to Flipboard. Perhaps even more interesting, he said that Google+ will never have ads.
According to a report from ComputerWorld, Horowitz also revealed that a version of Google+ for enterprise users is on the way. He’s quoted as saying:
“We think that the enterprise-use case, everyone from multinational corporations to mum and pop businesses, is a fantastic opportunity for Google and Google+…”
“”I think there is a real market need, and we are focused on it. It is something we definitely going to do…”
The API will no doubt be a huge factor, and major announcements surrounding Google+ are expected from Google I/O – the company’s developer conference – which takes place next week.
Google has already made Google+ a central point of business’ web presence, simply by essentially replacing Google Places with Google+ Local. Google+ Pages are also integrated with Google Apps. It will be very interesting to see what more Google has in store for enterprise-level businesses.
Horowitz’s discussion at LeWeb should soon be available here.
