News Organizations Launch on Something Called ‘Google+’

Poynter reports that The New York Times, Fox News, NBC News and “Good Morning America” now have pages on Google+. Google announced today that businesses and news organizations can finally have pages, and those are just a few of the news entities making use of the service already.

If you’re one of the 27 people out there who still use Google+, the Times even wants your help. Lexi Mainland, a Social Media Editor for the paper, tweeted the Times’ Google+ launch and asked what readers would like to see covered there.

Please note that if you comment something snarky about how you’d like to read the Google+ posts on Facebook, you will be banned.
