For all those of you who thought Google+ is just another social networking platform, there’s actually a lot more that you can do with this service. Besides communicating with your peers and business contacts, G+ gives you the option to integrate any existing Google Tools, which you were probably using, with the social media platform. So, there you go. For using Google’s latest offering to social media, you don’t need to familiarize yourself with any different set of tools or any such applications.
Integration between Google’s already-popular tools, Gmail, Google Docs, just to name a few, and G+ is seamless. With this feature, commercial entities do not need to change their way of conducting business. It’s more like, you keep doing what you have been doing till date, but results just seem to multiply manifold. As for social media enthusiasts outside the commercial world, G+ comes as a gateway to more online engagement. Grouping contacts becomes easy if you use one or more Google Tools, and then there’s G+ Circles to make the entire process easier.

But the way things are poised, it looks like the G+ team will certainly roll out separate versions of tools and productivity applications powered by Google, sooner than what you may have anticipated. Now, here’s something coming straight from the officials at Google -
Bradley Horowitz, VP of Product for Google Apps, has said, “the demand for Plus to integrate with Google Apps is the single biggest bit of feedback we got.”
There you have it, all in a nutshell for you. Put on your thinking caps and start speculating.
And, of course, come back to us for more updates on G+!
