Google VP of Product Bradley Horowitz announced today that Google+ will now be available to teens. Previously, the social network was exclusively for adults over 18, but now anyone with a Google Account can use it (13+ in most countries).
When we analyze the set of all name appeals on Google+, we find that they generally fall into three major categories: - The majority (60%) of these users want to simply add nicknames. - About 20% of appeals are actually businesses (who are inadvertently trying to set up their business as a Profile, rather than using Google+ Pages which were intended for this purpose.) - And the remaining 20% would either prefer to use a pseudonym or another unconventional name.
Today we’re pleased to be launching features that will address and remedy the majority of these issues. To be clear - our work here isn’t done, but I’m really pleased to be shipping a milestone on our journey.

Today we’re happy to introduce the +1 counter, which allows you to quickly scan your dashboard to see which posts are most popular on your blog. Each time a reader clicks the +1 button on a post, a +1 gets added to that post's counter and their profile photo and name will appear.

Anyone building a brand or business page on Google+ quickly comes to a rather unsettling realization: At no point in the process does Google do anything to check that you have any real connection to the brand name on your page.
So it would seem that you are left relying on searchers’ detective abilities to sniff out which page is the real McCoy, right?
Type in the languages you want, when you want them — anywhere on the web. Chrome Extension: If you write in a language that doesn't use Roman letters, you might enjoy this input tool. Typing in another language directly into text boxes in webpages is now easier.
