For those of you still confused, Google + allows you to create a personal account (just like Facebook), then you can create Google + pages (Just like Facebook pages).
Google + local (now Google My Business) let’s you control listings on Google maps. It used to come with a Google + style page that is linked from the Google map listing, which allows you to interact with users.
For example, a Panera Bread Google map listing shown below is linked to its Google + Style page (when you click on where the red arrow is pointing)
A Panera Bread Google + style page linked from a listing on Google maps
So what will happen to my Google + page (for my business)?
It will remain a separate entity. Even though you could control it through a Google My Business account (if you use the same Google account to sign up for Google + and Google My Business), the Google + page is separate….. at least for now anyways.
