Say Hello to Google+ brand pages.

Google announced yesterday the release of Google+ brand pages.

“So far Google+ has focused on connecting people with other people,” Google SVP of Social Vic Gundotra said in a blog post. “But we want to make sure you can build relationships with all the things you care about—from local businesses to global brands—so today we’re rolling out Google+ Pages worldwide.”

I have been pretty skeptical with Google+ and have hardly used it at all personally. I check it out once in a blue moon to see only 2 people of my 100 some connections updating religiously. I don’t know if this will work, if brands like Ford, Macy’s and Angry Birds are just jumping on to hold the coveted “first!” medal. But I think it’s still cool to try out something fresh and new.

I created an Alstin page today, and if unlike me you actually put your G+ account to good use, be sure to follow us and I promise that I’ll provide you all with interesting content and fun agency news!
