Will Google Delete Ford and Mashable's Google+ Profiles?
Posted on July 8, 2011
Google+ Product Manager Christian Oestlien says Google+ is currently being optimized for consumers. They are working on Google+ profiles for businesses. They are asking businesses to hold off on creating Google+ profiles until the business profiles are ready.
Mashable notes that it and other brands, Ford and MSNBC's Breaking News, already have these disallowed Google+ profiles.
Oestlien says in his post, "Our policy team will actively work with profile owners to shut down non-user profiles."
Google+ business profiles will be a big deal. Facebook and Twitter have already proven that people like to follow brands, particularly media brands so they can keep up with the news. Oestlien says business profiles will launch later this year. They are also looking for test profiles. The link to apply can be found in his post. Take a look:
