As promised -- or at least as constantly talked about -- Google + has been opened up to businesses and brands so everyone and their enterprise can now get in on the social sharing action:

Google+ has always been a place for real-life sharing, and Google+ Pages is no exception. After all: behind every page (or storefront, or four-door sedan) is a passionate group of individuals, and we think you should able to connect with them too.

For you and me, this means we can now hang out live with the local bike shop, or discuss our wardrobe with a favorite clothing line, or follow a band on tour. Google+ pages give life to everything we find in the real world. And by adding them to circles, we can create lasting bonds with the pages (and people) that matter most.

The Muppets, Anderson Cooper 360, Macy's, BurBerry, Angry Birds and more are already up and waiting for you, and thanks to Direct Connect, your searches can take you right to Google + Pages now as well. Hit the link below for all the details.
