    If you are not familiar with Google+ consider reading my previous article – 8 Reasons that Make Google+ Better than Facebook and Twitter – for an introduction. This article is about the differences between Google+ pages and Google+ profiles. This way you can use each of them to represent and market your freelance business properly.
