We’ve already taken an in-depth look at how journalists can use Google+ in their arsenal of tools, and with Google+ finally launching pages for brands, we’re bound to see their own networks and publications getting in on the game.
Fox News, one of the first news networks to create a brand page on Google+, is once again taking the lead on this one. The network is going to be using the Google+ Hangout feature for live interviews of the Republican presidential candidates.
