Excerpt: What are Hangouts? Most Google+ users know about circles but I’ve come across several users who don’t really know how Hangouts work.
In simple words, Hangouts are a way for people to video chat with users within their various social networks – or circles. Anyone in that circle can decide to join and chat.
Watch this Google video to see hangouts in action.
What’s in it for your Business? The basic idea behind Hangouts is to promote face to face communication. It makes more sense for business users as they can connect with the prospect and existing customers to answer their questions, showcase their products and services etc.
They could also use it to do a video conferencing session with their partners and resellers. The possibilities are endless – networking events, virtual meetings, Affinity development, Ask the Expert are all good candidates for Google+ Hangouts. http://www.stumbleupon.com/su/8Tyf1i/smedio.com/2011/08/16/how-to-use-google-hangouts-for-business/
I have applied a keen eye for blending cultural trends, the right people and emergent industries to create dynamic new businesses in cable TV, internet and currently mobile media and marketing services for local and national companies.
I was an associate publisher for three startup magazines in New York. I helped brand and position these magazines in the marketplace through promotions at trade shows, advertising and special events
