From Danny’s Report:
Finally, Google is now allowing businesses, brands and any non-human entity to participate in its Google+ social network, through new Google+ Pages that are launching today, promised to be available to everyone within the next two days.

- Product or Brand
- Company, Institution or Organization
- Arts, Entertainment or Sports
