Google+ Page Removed from New Google My Business Listing

Google My Business has removed the automatic creation of a Google+ page for the business. After verifying a new Google Business Page you will notice that the Google+ icon on the info page and the Connect to your Customers, Share an Update on the home page is missing from the Google business account page.

You get a sense of how bitter the divorce has become between Google My Business and Google+ because there is no link or notification to enable the Google+ page for the business.

Once Verified the Account becomes visible in your View all Brand Accounts:

Selecting the new account brings up an empty Google+ page with some featured pages and trending posts. The user needs to select Enable G+.

If you are going to create a Google+ business page, then I would recommend keeping it active. There is nothing worse then an empty social media channel for a business.
