Posting to a Google Apps domain

If you're a Google Apps user and your domain administrator has activated Google+ for your organization, you can share with your domain just as you'd share with your circles. To share with your domain, just select the chip with your organization name when identifying whom you'd like to share with.

When you share with your domain, your content will appear in the Home pages of the people who have you in a circle and be visible on your 'Posts tab' to everyone in your organization.

Your domain administrator may limit sharing with others outside of your organization. Learn more about sharing restrictions for Google Apps users.
