Hangout Mastery Members Only Q&A session re. Hangouts
This is a Private HOA for Hangout Mastery members in a Public Event.

Before the start time, I'll add in the HOA video for you to test the play arrow. If you can press that play arrow and you see the countdown timer you are using the proper account. If it tells you that the Video is Private then you will need to sign out of YouTube or G+ with the 'other account' and sign in again using the same account you use in our Private Membership Community. More details here

This is a monthly event for Hangout Mastery members... if you are a member (new or long-time member), please feel free to leave a comment or question about Hangouts or your membership. You can also ask to be in the filmstrip for this one in our private community.

Please realize that the Public (anyone) can see the comments here. I set it up this way so we can bring your questions/comments on screen via the Comment Tracker tool.

Not a Member yet but you're interested in joining us?... check out Hangout Mastery info at

Changes on the way for Google+ and YouTube
The only thing constant is change!

Here's a link to the Google Blog and to the YouTube Blog where these items are announced today plus I'll pull out some key quotes from the Blogs and posts about the blogs.

Google Blog Post:

YouTube Blog Post:

From +Bradley Horowitz's post (Google/Google+)...
We're going to continue focusing Google+ on helping users connect around the interest they love, and retire it as the mechanism by which people share and engage within other Google products.

...We decided it’s time to fix this, not only in YouTube, but across a user’s entire experience at Google. We want to formally retire the notion that a Google+ membership is required for anything at Google… other than using Google+ itself.

From the YouTube Blog Post...
With today’s announcement from Google+, you’ll see more changes. The comments you make on YouTube will now appear only on YouTube, not also on Google+. And vice-versa. This starts rolling out today.

Your YouTube channel
This one’s further off. In the coming weeks, YouTube will no longer require a Google+ profile when you want to upload, comment, or create a channel. If you’re happy with everything as it is now, then just keep on keepin’ on. If you want to remove your Google+ profile, you’ll be able to do this in the coming months, but do not do it now or you’ll delete your YouTube channel (no bueno)...

h/t: +Michael Daniels who brought the beginning of the rabbit hole to my attention as part of our Hangout Mastery Community... you guys ROCK!

Community Links Show Blue instead of Red 'g' for Google
If you use Google+ Communities you know that in the upper right area when you arrive there you will see the About this community information area...

Many of us that run communities utilize that space to explain a bit about the community and link to posts/areas inside and outside the community.

Until recently the links to items that lived inside a Google+ Community were shown with a Red G (google logo) or g+, now they are showing up as Blue Gs. Not a huge deal, but interesting how the Color Schemes of G+ are Changing. Will the Big Red g+ Logo be next?

Hangouts on Air or Live Streaming via YouTube changes menus
Still rolling out to the world, but it looks like YouTube has Changed where we might start our HOAs.

You can still use the Google+ method to start up your HOA Events via the left sided "Hangouts" menu, but if you were used to starting up your Hangouts on Air (HOA) broadcasts via the YouTube interface, that is/will be different moving forward.

Live Streaming
The image below shows the change. The "Live Streaming" grouping visible via the Creator Studio now contains an Events menu which is replacing the Live Events menu that used to live under the "Video Manager" grouping.

Updated Streaming options
We can still use the Google+ HOA option to broadcast the easy way (known as "Quick") with others included in an interactive filmstrip. But there is a new version of Live Streaming still identified as "Custom" or started via the new "Stream now [Beta]" menu choice pictured below.

The updated "Stream now" choice of live streaming seems to be aimed at the Gamers market, and includes an option to "Optimize for Interaction (low latency)".

What it means for HOA Hosts
More to come as we see more roll out, but for HOA Hosts that use the YouTube Interface to start up their HOA Broadcasts, we'll simply need to look for a new menu grouping within YouTube (pictured here).

To learn why you'd use one HOA startup option (YouTube) vs. another (Google+) join into the Hangout Mastery paid membership

h/t: +Heather Kraafter for the alert to the change and for sharing her screen with me.

How the Tech Press tends to get it wrong re. Google plus
Check out a well reasoned article by +Mike Elgan which properly challenges the common yet misinformed tech press "echo chamber" that continues to proclaim "Google+ is Dead".

Here are a few key points Mike writes in the article published by ...

There are two things at play here. The first factor is Google+ itself. The second is the strategy to integrate Google services into Google+. The integration is being phased out. Google+ is not. The press is confusing these two facts.

... So Google says they have no plans to phase out Google+ and that it's doing well. That information comes directly from the two people with the best information.

The echo chamber tech press, on the other hand, insists on saying Google+ is being killed. Their information comes from nowhere. They made it up.


The tech press, needless to say, is massively influential on public opinions about technology and social networks. Unfortunately, they're also a tiny, narrow, insular group of people who live in a bubble which is nothing more than a majority illusion fantasy world. ... And that's the one and only reason why they're telling you that Google+ is dead.

h/t: +B.L. Ochman for pointing me to this article, hope you enjoy it and pass it along as well.
Rob Gordon's profile photoRichard Wright's profile photoJaz Greer's profile's profile photo
Let's not forget that Mike was granted millions of followers by Google through that corrupt "suggested users list" as a reward for his ridiculous "Google+ diet" advice, and other endless praise of Google.   The consensus now seems to be that Google will shrink Google+ down to a niche "interest based" site with features that are still off in the future.  Well, maybe - I will keep an open mind, but it is just as likely that they will lose interest.  Remember Schemer?  or for that matter Orket?   Google has already gotten "the bad news" out of the way for Google+.   Now with "collections" - which most people think bombed, - you posts will be safely tucked away on your own profile.   It won't be too hard for them to put the last few nails in the coffin if that is what they want to do.

New Options for Facebook Videos
Looks like Facebook Page owners are getting much better options for the videos they upload directly to the platform.

Many of these are things YouTube users are used to having i.e. "Secret Videos" sound a lot like "Unlisted" YouTube videos at first glance. But Facebook has now given video creators much more control for what they upload directly to the social network.

Read the details below.

Thanks for pointing this out goes to +Social Media Examiner

#OnlineVideo #FacebookVideo 
Today we're excited to introduce enhancements to our video upload system and a new Video Library. The enhanced video upload flow gives Page owners customized distribution options for videos on Facebook, while the new Video Library is a simple, centralized place to manage videos.

Thanks for sharing this great info +Ronnie Bincer 
Privacy and other settings available seem to be different and some seem to be exact opposite of what YouTube allows.  Interesting to see how it will be used by the hoards of marketers who throng Facebook.

Hangout on Air-like feature added to Meerkat
Hangouts on Air have been a wonderful place to easily broadcast a live video stream that includes many of your friends & co-workers.

Now Meerkat is adding a "Cameo" feature to their mobile broadcasting tool which allows others to join in and 'take over the screen'. Read more about it in the featured post from +Mashable below.

Those familiar with Hangouts on Air (HOA) would likely see this option as adding the ability to let others interact visually as part of the broadcast. Currently those Cameo Appearances can only last up to 60 seconds (at a time).

A fellow Hangout Mastery member, +Krishna De, is doing a demonstration on how this might work for an interview-type broadcast initiated via her iOS mobile device. Check out details about that here:
Meerkat has a host of new features, including the ability to let other users "take over" your video stream.

+Krishna De I keep experimenting with Meerkat though (much more quietly than Periscope) because I think they'll do something really great in the next 18 months.

Explore Live Streaming with Google/YouTube
This article, part of the YouTube Creator Academy, gives a great overview of the value you'll get by putting on Live Video Broadcasts.

It discusses the use of Hangouts on Air as well as YouTube Live Events. It stresses the value of the broadcasts as they relate to your fans and viewers.

There is a quick quiz at the end if you want to test what you learned (sign in first to keep the score), and takes about 15 minutes to read and take the quiz on average.
