Googles raising their game a little, better for us
They’ve now introduced a few more options that is going to make a big difference…especially where we can now enter into a group discussion with up to 9 other people and show each other our computer screens, currently these options are still in testing mode, but they are really on it here and are asking for peoples feed back.
- The fact that we are now able to screen share has changed things dramatically in our favour…this is a biggie, now we can share our desktop/laptop with the people who are in the “Hangout” I can see this having an effect on the Webinar platform…where some are just charging ridiculous prices just to be able to show screen sharing. I’m sure there are plenty of groups out there that meet up every week to discuss things on a Webinar say! Or the fact that you may offer a one on one with a lucky contestant who has won a consultation with you on a walk through on how things are done….what I’m saying here is social media is going to change the way things are done online.
- Naming your hangout, you can see from the image above…we’re now getting the chance to give the hangout a “unique name,” so the name always says it all; doesn’t it . Say you wanted to start a hangout and name the topic “Online Beginners,” then that means if it were open to the public, your followers can view the name and see if it would be of interest for them to get involved or if they weren’t a beginner they could simply pass on, it opens up the stage for people with a large following that want to talk about a specific topic and give it that name, others followers can then see the name and skip it if it doesn’t appeal to them.
P.S. another big one here is “Google docs” I know a lot of people outsource and usually use jing and other software to get the point across, now being able to use Google docs in a Hangout – you can have a live one on one with your outsourcing team, showing them directly how to go about doing certain tasks.
So I’m loving the new changes G+ are making to the hangouts; lets hope they get even better .
See yaaaa all over at a Google hangout, lol.
