Confused about google+ local & google places

I am confused!
What is the difference between google+ local for business page and google places for business page?

Should i use both for local listing OR only google places for business page enough for local SEO?

    Google Places is the common/basic local listing,
    Google Local basically Google Places + Social features.

    Yes, you should keep it both. Once you have you Google Places verified for your business page, have your Google+ Local verified and they should merge together. Now, you only need to open youg Google+ account to see everything. I hope this was helpful!

      Bad move on Google for not deciding on a name already.

      They're just going to keep confusing people which is probably why the Google+ social platform hasn't been as popular as Facebook or Twitter.

      Hope they know what they're doing and that this little inconvenience doesn't effect their business down the road.
