Automating Google + Postings – Follow-up

In this previous post about automating social media content, particularly as it applies to the new Google + pages for business, I indicated that I “requested” such automation from HootSuite and I would keep you posted.   The short version is, it’s not widely available yet. Here’s the email I received from HootSuite in response to my request. I think I mentioned that I fully expected to get some sort of sales pitch, which I did, although a subtle one referring to their Pro Plan along with a promotion code for their University isn’t evasive at all. Thumbs up, Hootsuite.
