Google+ as enterprise social network

There are 5 enterprise social networks:
  • Google provides Google+
  • Microsoft promotes Yammer
  • Salesforce's Chatter
  • Cisco's Jive
  • IBM's Connections
Of the five networks, Google+ may balance personal and professional connections best. Google launched Google+ first as a personal network in the summer of 2011, then opened it to organizational Google Apps accounts later that fall. With Google+, you can share professional information privately or publicly: you choose the visibility.

In November 2014, Google made it faster for people who use Google Apps to get started with Google+. Google added the ability for a Google Apps administrator to create a Google+ profile for each person in the organization.
