What is the difference between Google + author tag & publisher tag?

Steve WiidemanSteve Wiideman, Creative Search Strategist
Publisher corresponds to an entity's Google Plus page and displays a snippet under a search engine result. Author corresponds to an individual's Google Plus profile and may display an image of the author to the left of a search engine result.

Which helps SEO? Whichever has more subscribers and gets shared the most.
HI,

Google Plus Author tag if for an author  an individual to hallmark that you are author of a certain article.

Whereas, Publisher tag is for a company..You can use it as a company's authority.Check how Mashable posts come in search pages..It shows their logo at times..

So, author is for individual..Publisher is for Company !

Thanks!
