Google+ overcomes major objection, allows Google Apps users in

Google+ to get a new boost

One of the major objections users have had and the main reason cited for not joining Google’s social network, Google+ is that any user already using Google Apps could not use the social network because Google+ required a standard account, rendering Google Apps user accounts incompatible with the new social network.

According to Google, “Starting now you can manually turn on Google+ for your organization. Once Google+ is turned on, your users will just need to sign up at to get started. For customers who use Google Apps for Business or the free version of Google Apps and who have chosen to automatically enable new services, Google+ will automatically become available to all of your users over the next several days.”

Additionally, Google Apps users will have access to the same set of features available to Google+ users and be able to have the same functionality like sharing publicly or with circles. Google notes that Google Apps users will have the option to “share with everyone in your organization, even if you haven’t added all of those people to a circle.”

As Google rolls this out over the next few days, businesses and colleges will be able to finally participate in the new social network which we predict will improve time on site, number of visits and other stats recently under fire by Google+ critics.
