Bangalore: Google has officially added an array of Enterprise Social Networking (ESN) features to their multilingual social networking service, Google+.

Google has been planning to officially release an enterprise version of their service for companies and businesses. With this release, the company aims a successful start of their service in the enterprise space.

Google released the preview mode of their social service, specifically for offices. The new features clearly indicate that Google+ is aiming their offerings for schools, companies and government agencies. Google+ works in accordance to Google Apps.

"During this preview period, organizations that have gone Google will be able to use the business features of Google+ for free through the end of 2013 while we continue to add more features and administrative controls designed for organizations," wrote Clay Bavor, product management director, Google Apps, in a blog post.

Launched in 2011, Google+ is now the latest to join the hottest enterprise trend followed by other networking sites like Facebook and Twitter. With the add-on features, Google+ now allows its users to actively stream, micro blog, document share, rate the content, conduct discussion groups and find online communities.

"When you create a post you can mark it as restricted. Restricted posts are private to your organization and can never be re-shared with anyone outside," Bavor wrote. Google also provides additional support to IT companies in creating their own policies for usage and content sharing.
