Google is jumping right into its newly announced Google+ pages for business and brands by launching its own +YouTube and +Google pages. The Google page features information about Google, along with photos of staff and internal events.
The +YouTube page will share news about YouTube, along with music and live streamed events. The brand pages are laid out in much the same way as a standard Google+ profile is, and by its nature takes on the form of one of Google’s official blogs. This makes us wonder if perhaps Google won’t begin using Google+ as its primary channel for official communications.
F**k it, we'll do it live!

But Google is hoping that the addition of the photos, sharing tools and circle linking that is inherent to Google+ will give it a much more Facebook-like atmosphere for businesses.
It makes sense for Google to launch its own Pages on Google+ right off the bat as it not only shows confidence in the program, but will act as a template for others to use to set up their own Pages.
