About Google+ for Work

Google+ for Work is a social media platform that lets your users share information and collaborate with others, both inside and outside your organization. Users can post all sorts of content, such as text, links, photos, and videos to enhance communication and collaboration within your organization, as well as with customers and clients.

Key features

Google+ Profiles: Users can create rich profiles that include information such as their contact details, projects they're working on, and their expertise. Users can choose which information is visible to others inside or outside your organization. Learn more about profiles.

Circles: Users can share what they want with whom they want by organizing their coworkers and other contacts into circles, such as those for different teams, projects, special-interest groups, and customers. Learn more about circles.

Hangouts: Users can communicate face-to-face with others in multi-way video rooms called hangouts—without complicated audio and video setup. Hangouts provide screen sharing and integrate with Google Drive files for collaborative document editing. Learn more about hangouts.

Streams: Users can find and engage with content that's shared with them on their Google+ Home page. Learn more about the Home page.

Communities: Users can create and join open communities to discuss projects or shared interests, or private communities to collaborate with just the right people. Learn more about communities.

Enterprise features

With Google+ for Work, you can help ensure your users share information with only those they intend. For example, you can make all posts "restricted" by default, so they can't be shared outside your organization unless users choose to unrestrict them. Learn more about Google+ enterprise features.

Enabling Google+

You can enable or disable Google+ for all or just specific users in your organization. Learn more
