Interview From #SESSF: Michelle Stinson Ross Talks Google Hangouts & Twitter Chats by @johnrampton
On Google+ there is an option to promote your Hangout by setting up an event. Some people also cross-promote by using Facebook Events to promote their Twitter chats or Google Hangouts. Since Google Hangouts allow a maximum of 10 participants, Michelle recommends establishing a Twitter hashtag for the Hangout to extend the conversation to people who weren’t able to join on Google+. Personal appearance as well as the appearance of your space are key when hosting a Google Hangout. Michelle also recommends proper lighting and being aware of ambient noise. After you have done a Google Hangout use it as a promotional tool for your next one!
