Ford - The first consumer brand on Google Plus
Ford has just appeared on the new social network, Google Plus, making it (as far as I know) the first consumer brand to use the site. See their page here.
So far it's pretty mundane - one competition, some 'travel survival tips'. With only about 150 'Fans' or 'Followers' (we need to find a new word).
Overall I really like Goolke Plus. It's clean, and it makes sense to differentiate people that you know. I'm not sure it'll command lots of my time, but it's an interesting addition to the landscape.
Being a Google product, you know that it'll get a lot more comprehensive over time.
PS - other corporate entities on Google+ include Mashable and the British agency Made by Many
