Recently, Google announced the arrival of Google Plus Communities. Google Plus Communities allow pages and profiles to initiate discussions around specific topics. It’s a great way to foster a community, share resources, discuss industry-specific issues, and get feedback and advice from others within your space. And there’s the added bonus that comes from using all Google products, the potential SEO benefits. In order to help you start out with Google Plus Communities, we gathered seven Google Plus Healthcare Communities related to healthcare marketing, healthcare social media, and healthcare information technology. We hope to see you there!
