Yep, we can now schedule to our Google+ Pages with HootSuite. This makes my day! I know I personally haven’t used Google+ as much as I’d like…and the reason being, I didn’t have a tool that fit into my schedule. That meant I had to go to the network directly, and most of you know I have systems in place that save me hours every day…so I seldom made it over to my Google+ space. Well, that will all change now
Let’s hear it straight from the source, HootSuite:
Google+ Pages For Brand Engagement
