Through Buddy Media, HootSuite & More, Google+ Pages Get Third-Party Management Tools | TechCrunch
Google spinning up Google+'s developer ecosystem. As I've written from the beginning, Google is playing the long game here; it's obvious that an inordinate amount of WordPress's Facebook's and Twitter's strengths and value has come from their APIs and developer communities (they're all platform plays from this perspective), and Google is taking its time, experimenting. They are executing very well and have time to do it right. Monitor this carefully, the functionality will accelerate. Google may also be taking some lessons from LinkedIn and how they have used an extremely controlled approach to their developer community. Google is also feeling the pain of the chaotic (according to some) Android developer community. A lot of lessons they may be considering.
