If Google+ is ever going to compete with Facebook, it’s clear that Google will need to attract brands and celebrities to its social network.
After all, brands and celebrities have become a fixture on Facebook, with some racking up millions of fans.
Perhaps wisely, Google launched Google+ with a focus on individuals. The logic seems sensible: to build a social network in which individuals can connect with brands and celebrities, you need individuals.
Those individuals, of course, aren’t interested exclusively in liking Coca-Cola or posting messages on Lady Gaga’s wall; they primarily want to interact with real people.
