Google+ now available for Google Apps domains

Y'all ragged on me because Google+ was only available to gmail users...
Well, now you can enable it for your users from the control panel on your
Google Apps domains...

Google Apps administrators can manually turn on

their organization. Once Google+ is turned on, users will need to sign up
at <> to get started. For customers
who use Google Apps for Business or the free version of Google Apps and who
have chosen to automatically enable new services<>,
Google+ will automatically become available to all of your users over the
next several days.

*Editions included:*
Google Apps, Google Apps for Business, Government and Education*

Now, do I toss the last 1.5 years of posts and use my apps domain, or stay
as my gmail user account. Decisions, decisions... Methjinks history is the
better part of valor, so I will stay using my gmail account. It would be
cool if you could link them.


"For those of you who’ve already started using Google+ with a personal Google Account and would prefer to use your Google Apps account, we’re building a migration tool to help you move over. With this tool, you won’t have to rebuild your circles, and people who’ve already added you to their circles will automatically be connected to your new profile. We expect this migration option to be ready in a few weeks, so if you’d like, you can go ahead and get started with your Apps account today and merge your connections once the tool is available."

Once that tool is complete, you should be able to merge/migrate your gmail G+ account to your Google Apps account. You can already do so with most of the numerous other Google properties.

Keep in mind that if you want to publicly post on Google+ using your Google Apps account, you will need to change your account name to conform with Google's definition of "something that looks kind of like the thing on your government photo ID".

Possibly not for much longer:



Google officially* repudiated that, saying it was nothing new, just their old promise that eventually they plan to offer pseudonym support if they can solve the technical problems.

* By "officially", I mean that Google+ VP Vic Gundotra commented in Mike Elgan's post that Mike was correct. That's about as official as Google gets when it comes to the policy.
