Yesterday HootSuite [affilate link] announced support for Google+ Pages!
Back in November, I blogged about Google+ being open for nonprofits. But one of the hardest things for nonprofits has been the fact that they have to remember to go to the Google+ site rather than using their social media tools like HootSuite.
Suddenly, Google+ is more relevant for nonprofits
HootSuite’s integration allows you to monitor your page and your Google+ stream from right within HooteSuite. You can even choose the circles you want to share posts to, just like on Google+.
You can read all about the HootSuite Google+ integration on their blog. There’s even a quick video explaining why Google+ pages are so much better than other social media platforms.
Fastest growing social media network
While I’m not suggesting you ditch your Facebook presence, you really need to check out Google Plus. It continues to be the fastest growing social media platform. Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter were still the top social media sites last month here in the USA, but Google+ had more users than LinkedIn or Tumblr or Pinterest. Google+ might not be getting great press, but it sure is getting more users.
Those users could be your donors.
What are you waiting for?

Hi Marc, thanks for sharing and the kind words. G+ is definitely a network that can’t be ignored anymore. All of us a HootSuite are really excited about adding G+ pages for everyone – it’s been a long time coming.
Let us know if we can help with anything.
I love Google+. Good to know it’s becoming more relevant to nonprofits.
Wahooo!! Those of us G+ lovers have been waiting for third party integration for a long, long time. Until now, it’s “just another place I have to remember to go to” in my daily online life. Sadly, it’s still not integrated with Tweetdeck, my preferred personal third party app, but I’m hoping that it will integrate soon Hopefully very, very soon. However, until then, HootSuite gets my support if a client asks me which third party app to choose…
Thanks for reporting on this, Marc. Always enjoy connecting with you and others on Google Plus.
I forget about Tweetdeck!
I wish I could do personal updates from Hootsuite, but I’m happy to at least have the pages integrated!
