    I have a Google Plus profile, and a Google Plus page. I generally focus on updating my profile, but maybe I should be doing the opposite. I don’t know. It’s easier to get followers on the profile.

    I think the new changes they have made to google pages are really interesting and made people focus more on Google business pages. Most importantly I like the option to change the admin rights. I have started using them seriously now.
