You can now pin Google+ posts to the top of your profile or brand page. Such a feature has been available on Twitter and Facebook for quite some time, but now Google's not-dead social network will enable you to do the same.

Google's Dennis Troper announced the functionality in a Google+ post, saying:

People often have posts that they want to make sure get seen when someone visits their profile, like a great nature shot from a recent family trip. Businesses also have content they want to highlight such as photos of a new product or a trailer for an upcoming movie.

Starting today, you can pin a post to the top of your profile or page. When someone visits your page, they’ll see the pinned content first above the rest of your posts.

To take advantage of the feature, go to the drop down menu on any public post on your profile or page from a desktop browser. For some reason, only desktop and Android users will actually see the post pinned for now, though Troper says iOS support is coming soon.

It's unclear whether Google plans on adding the functionality to its mobile apps, as in letting you pin a post from mobile.
