Google+ Pages Get New Communication Manager Role

google+ logoGoogle+ product manager John Kilcline announced today Google+ pages now have a new Communications Manager role.

According to Kilcline’s post, anyone selected as a Google+ page Communication Manager can post content, reply to Google+ page followers and use the Communities and Events features, but will not be able to edit pages, managers, or any connected YouTube channels.

“Many brands and businesses have employees who focus on audience engagement – from posting content, to answering questions, to just keeping things fun,” writes Kilcline to explain the new role’s purpose. He goes on to clarify why Communication Managers have limited access to the full set of Google+ admin tools, “Such people are critical for connecting with followers, but they don’t need full access to a page’s online presence.”

The Communication Manager role can be assigned from the “Managers” tab of the Google+ Dashboard.
