Where did updates go?

Hi everyone,


The interface of Google My Business has changed. I used to be able to write a couple of sentences and post a link to an article on my website, via the 'share an update' button.


Does anybody know where this has gone?


Now there is a button that allows me to create a 100-300 word post. I don't want to do that, I just want to share a quick link.


Can anybody help?


Let me know

Hi @sonia d,


Google+ now is separated from the Google My Business system. When you would post an article about your website, that was done on your Google+ page... and you can still do that. Please go to and visit your G+ page and look for the red circle with a pencil icon in the lower left hand corner to make a post.


The new post feature you are seeing with your Google MY Business profile is something very new and something very different from posting to Google+. Please read this information that will explain more about this very powerful feature. 


Kind Regards,
