Whether you think Google+ is the next revolutionary step in social media or you find it lamely similar to arranging wedding seating charts, it's clear by the huge number of people who initially joined the service that folks are intrigued by the concept.

At Slate, we are always interested in finding new ways to engage and interact with our readers, and so we’re pleased to announce that we are starting a conversation on the Google+ platform. Google has just allowed businesses to join in on the fun, and here is the official Slate account. We hope it will provide a great platform for discussion, along the lines of our popular Twitter and Facebook accounts.

Check it out here.
