10 LinkedIn LIONs and Super Connectors to Connect with

Google Plus Pages (aka Brand Pages) are now like G+ Profiles...

At the end of December 2012 some of us that watch this stuff were shocked and pleased that the G+ Page was given more power to interact. http://goo.gl/30ASq

Before that time, the +Page was limited in many ways and that was a problem for many that wanted to use them (like me). It could only circle a person (aka Profile), if the person had circled the +Page first. It could not add a comment to a person's post, or reshare a person's post, etc.

All that started to change when the GPC (Communities) came online because inside a GPC the +Page had equal rights to a +Profile.

Now (just noticed thanks to +Clayton Pritchard and his +Google Plus Daily +page) our Google Plus PAGES can Add a Profile to the Page's Circles Without the Profile adding the Page 1st.

I'm pretty sure that bonus opportunity was not introduced at the end of Dec. '12 like the other options were, but even if it was, not many people noticed it then.

Now we know, The +PAGE is pretty much capable of doing what a +PROFILE can do now...

Good news for sure for small to medium sized businesses on G+. For +Pages that use this capability responsibly, they will be much better off.

For those worried about spam:
Profiles can Still Block other Profiles or Pages when required... if someone (profile or page) is inappropriate, feel free to let them know first, then if they continue to be spammy... Mute them or Block 'em!

To paraphrase a friend +Mark Traphagen ... hopefully people will judge the value of a post or a comment based on its Content, and less on its source.

Does this capability mean you will use +Pages more now or has the GPC replaced the need for a +Page?

There are still some differences between what +Pages can do and what +Profiles can do, but most of the main problem areas for Pages are now gone, IMO.

What is it?
A bunch of friendly folks from the community have decided to come together and put on an cool event!
We will fling open the doors and meet even more people on the virtual porch i.e. hangouts. (Ok, there are no doors on a porch, but you know what I mean!)
By opening up a load of hangouts, it gives us all a chance to meet even more of the neighbours. We did the same thing last year and it was an awesome event.
Interested? Well, click 'yes' and we shall see you then...

When?
We will start the hangouts in the morning (European time) and then continue to flow them throughout the day. Just to mention a few people getting involved...
+Shefali Burns will kick start about 9.30am CST and +Rosie Battista and +Ande Lyons will get some hangouts rolling 1pm EST.
Lots more people will open up hangouts and invite their circles as well, so it should be fun.

How:
We will post the hangout links on this event's comment thread and sent out invites as well. Simple.

What else?
Wherever you are in the world, we should well have some hangouts going that will work for you. Say 'yes' and we will see you then!

Ever tried a Hangout?

Technology aside, a Hangout is a gathering of people who have something in common. Treat it as such and behave as you would in any social setting.

Update: Google+ Pages Can Now Follow Anyone

Since the beginning of Google+ Pages, Pages have not had the ability to follow users unless they follow the Page first. Then if the user unfollowed the Page, the Page automatically unfollowed the user as well. Recently, Google+ has changed their stance here.
