9 Special Needs Organizations already on Google+

On November 7th Google+ opened it’s doors to Organizations, companies and non-profits with Google+ Pages. Much like Facebook Pages, Google+ Pages gives non-profits a platform they can use to share and connect with their friends and supporters. Google+ also gives non profits the ability to reach out to potential new supporters and followers as well.

Google+ is still in its infancy and there are still many questions about how Google+pages will evolve (see Mashable’s article: Google+ Brand Pages Are the “Wild West”– for Now and Fast Company’s: The Power Potential Of Google+ Pages For Businesses and Will Google+ Pages Quit Flirting And Get Down To Business?).

Here at Friendship Circle of Michigan we have started to tinker with our Google+ Page. We are also eager to connect with other Special Needs Google+ Pages and learn and share with each other.

After a quick look around we have come up with a eight special needs organizations that are already on Google+. If you know of any more that have joined please share in the comments!
