In order to grow their social network, Google has put together a ‘celebrity acquisition plan’ reports CNN. The plan revolves around Google adding a verification process to Google+ for celebrities, keeping out the impersonators. This is very similar to Twitter’s ‘verified account’ feature many celebrities and public figures have taken advantage of.

Besides celebrity accounts, Google has been working hard on getting businesses to join their social network. Google opened up a registration for companies interested in getting a company page just a few weeks ago. Perhaps presence of celebrities and businesses will grow Google+ to new heights.
