Google+ PagesAnnounced on the Google AdWords Blog, which is a sign of things to come, Google is promoting six companies that are now offering tools for businesses to manage their Google + pages.

Google said, "Google+ is enabling six companies to test Google+ functionality in their management tools -- Buddy Media, Context Optional, Hearsay Social, HootSuite, Involver, and Vitrue." Google added, "These companies will offer a subset of their clients the ability to manage circles, publish to Google+, and monitor usage."

Google set up a devoted page at google.com/+/business/3rdpartytools.html for these companies and also said you want to add your tool, how to get in touch.

Anyway, I can go off on this a bit but I'll let you take the hints I dropped here and do that in the comments.

Frankly, I'm surprised Google hasn't done this sooner. If you want people to use your services, you have to make it easy--basic rule of business. Social networking users have to come to expect the ability to tie their profiles together, a "one stop shop" of sorts. I always expected Google+ to do the same.

That's great that Google is doing this. I can see managing circles getting quite time consuming if you were doing it right.    - Phil

Its gonna be great. Now we can say that Google + is in competition with facebook. Am running few facebook pages,  but haven't try Google + pages yet. But i would like to use it in order to feel the differnce between Google+ and facebook pages.

Makes a lot of sense that Google will do this. Make it as easy as possible for people to use your tools and more people will use it. Good business decision.
