Google+ (also sometimes written as Google Plus) is a fairly new social networking that was meant to be Google’s direct competition to other social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn. Google+ is software that is installed on to a computer. It is very easy to access once installed and is extremely easy to customize to a person or a company’s specific needs.

Because of the ease of use of the software, many companies are using Google+ to help their company perform basic daily functions within the company. So how is Google+ changing the world of corporate legal management? How are they showing other businesses how to use Google+ to a company’s advantage?


What is corporate legal management exactly? It is the job of the legal management, or in-house lawyers to deal with all the in-house legal matters that come in to a corporation at any given time. It is their job to sort through large amount of information and to give the “okay” for a legal based decision. It is also their job to give a “no” if there are possible legal ramifications

These are not easy tasks to perform for one person but for a large group of people it can become very complicated. Prior to Google+ they were able to complete these tasks using email, presentation software and word processing software. . With the invention of Google+ corporate legal teams are able to perform this entire task in one secured location, where everyone is one the “same page” literally.

What makes Google+ different than other social networking sites? As already discussed a huge advantage Google+ is the ease of use and its ability to be customize for each individual company. What makes Google+ so wonderful for company’s especially large ones lies in its “circles”? The Circles as they are called are small groups of people you are subscribing to all in one place. If you are a corporate lawyer in charge of a small group of other lawyers, you can manage them on in one place instead of communicating with them each separately.

A task that may have taken hours to communicate can now only take seconds. This is saving not only time but also can save a company money. Need an approval of a project or need to know the legal ramification of something? With Google+ you can ask your “circle” to help you with the task and they can get right on researching the topic or giving approval. In the age of time equals money, a person can easily understand why a corporation would use Google+.

It is easy to see why a company that is in charge of micro managing a team of corporate lawyers and who are also in charge of micro managing tasks–would use a wonderful invention like Google+ to their advantage.
