It’s no secret that similar to Coca-Cola wanting everyone in the world to drink more Coke than water, one of Google’s chief goals is to have every internet user ‘go Google.” You’re probably already using at least one Google product daily be it Gmail, Google Drive (formerly Google Docs), Google Calendar, Google Search, Google Chrome, YouTube (yes, they own it so it counts).
Now you have a bigger reason to ‘go Google’ a little farther to use Google+ for your business. Google is taking web-based and real-time collaboration tools to a new level for business by expanding these tools ”whether you’re across the street or across the world, you can hold face-to-face meetings, share updates with colleagues and friends and work on a presentation together in real time.”
Some of these features include Private sharing for your organization through Restricted posts, video meetings and hangouts integrated with Gmail, Google Calendar and Google Docs, administrative controls (including defaults for post restrictions,and enabled restricted Hangouts) with additional features planned to roll out.
At Boldly Social we use the free suite of integrated Google products daily and highly recommend them for many reasons. One of the main reasons is that the innovation at Google creates simple, helpful products that are ongoingly updated and upgraded. These tools save time, and more importantly, they help to organize and systematize our business in simple and easeful ways that are very, very valuable. So we highly encourage you to explore and enjoy the new features of Google+ for business.
