Google has really been pushing hard to make a play on Facebook with its Google+ social network. In all honesty, I haven’t paid much attention to Google+ but I’m about to.
Why the change? Google has been releasing a series of videos that do a fantastic job of demonstrating the power of Google+. Take for example the video I am embedding below. It demonstrates a specific use of a Google+ feature known as Google+ Hangouts.
Until I watched this video, I pictured Google+ Hangouts to be a bunch of teenage girls sitting in their bedrooms at night giggling with each other and discussing what they should wear to school the next day or which cute boy smiled at them that morning. I know, this is a horrible stereotype but at least I’m honest.
Never in my wildest dreams did I picture Google+ Hangouts being used the way it is in this video. Check it out and see for yourself.
