Google+ for Business by Chris Brogan, gives a comprehensive overview of how businesses can use Google+. Initially, the case is made why Google+ will be the next big thing. While I won’t argue that point, I will say the more important is what the future may look like. Taking into account the possible integration of Places, Docs, Calendar, Checkout, Android, Analytics and YouTube, coupled with Search, you can see why he makes the case for Google+ to be the next big thing.
Beyond what the future holds, Brogan provides not only a look at how he uses Google+, but also provides examples of how a several others are using it and how various business types would be able to use Google+.
