Buddy Media, Context Optional, Hearsay Social, HootSuite, Involver, and Vitrue Developing Google+ Tools

Posted Nov 15, 2011

In the past week Google+ launched a feature called Google+ Pages, which allowed businesses and brands build a profile. People have been critical of Google+’s Pages because they have banned promotions and competitions on brand pages directly, but they are allowed to do it from their own external websites. To allow social media management companies manage their presence on multiple social networks, Google+ is allowing Buddy Media, Context Optional, Hearsay Social, Hootsuite, Involver, and Vitrue test out their management tools on their service. These companies will be allowed to manage circle, publish to Google+, and monitor usage. [Google Inside Adwords]
