Google+ pulls more brand accounts
As a follow-up to the story we reported yesterday about Mid-Missouri station KOMU-TV having its account suspended, Google+ has apparently begun suspending more brand accounts.
Gone are Breaking News and Poynter for starters. NBC News voluntarily removed its account, Community Manager Anthony Quintano said via his personal account. Likewise, Mashable has also decided to move its Google+ content to its owner’s account.
Some media accounts still appear to be active as of this writing, though it wouldn’t be surprising for them to disappear soon.
Until Google is able to launch a solution for brands, many companies are letting fans know personal accounts they can use to track the same information such as this post about Breaking News.
What other media brands are still active? What ones have been yanked? Post your finds in the comments section below (here’s an article that discusses the removals as well).
