New look for Hangouts Page - added info and links to mobile app
The Desktop version of Google Plus now sports a new updated info panel and links to Mobile Hangout Apps.
Choose Hangouts from the left side dropdown menu and you'll see the new updated look for the Hangouts page. 

You can still Start a Hangout on Air (HOA) right from the first screen via the Blue Button, but you may need to slide down a bit to get to it. The link to get to the Hangouts page directly is

Hangouts are the Magical Communication Tool offered by Google+ for video meetings, they can be private or public. If public, then they are commonly broadcast live as HOA and automagically recorded as videos on YouTube when you're done. 

The other version of Hangouts start up from that little green quote thing in the upper right of the page, but only for Profile accounts, not available for Page accounts. Those are little text/chat meeting rooms called Hangout Message Boxes (HMB). They can easily turn into a private Hangout Video Call with the click of a button among those invited into that HMB.

Using Hangouts on Air to Build Influence
An interview with: +David Amerland
In his most recent best-selling book, Google+ Hangouts for Business: How to use Google+ Hangouts to Improve Brand Impact, Build Business and Communicate in Real-Time, David says “Hangouts on Air are a unique opportunity. This is the most disruptive marketing opportunity we have had for a long time. At a stroke you can dispel doubts about who you are and what you do, reach people, form relationships, and create new potential customers, and you can do it both in real time and asynchronously, increasing your marketing 
footprint with time.”

Hashtag Tips when creating your Scheduled HOA Events
...or any other type of post!
{{EDIT: Google ended up using my manually entered hashtags! YEA}}
If you don't supply the hashtags for your posts (including the Scheduled HOA Events - SHOAE) then Google will do it for you.

Yes, I knew that!
Yes, you probably did too, but I guess I let it slip this time and thought I'd share this as a warning to you too. I edited the event as soon as I realized my error, but I'm afraid it is too late. The Hashtags I added show in the post at the bottom where I typed them, but the ones at the top right are auto-created by the Google machine.

Just so you know, I could delete the ones up top with a click on the 'X'. But there is no way for me to replace the auto created hashtags that show in Blue with the Manually created ones I typed (which show in black up top) after the post has been posted.

Because there is a fair amount involved with recreating this SHOAE and the threat that I would not be able to invite as many people or communities to the event, I just left it be. Events are pretty picky about letting you invite folks to see them. Hope my mess up helps you not mess up!

The Videophone Turns 50... Is This Hangouts' "Mom"?
We do want to see each other when we communicate!
This contraption may have helped us get to where we are with Hangouts and Hangouts on Air.

Interesting read, not only re. the tech idea, but how the repeated efforts failed and failed until the conditions were right. The underlying concept was sound (visually enhanced distance communication), but the delivery was not right until [the following is quoted from the article, emphasis mine]...

...What changed the equation, of course, was the Internet and the ubiquity of devices — laptops, smartphones — with webcams built in. Since we already had the devices, all we needed was software...

Once we had the devices and the software, which we didn't have to buy separately and especially just for video calling, it's become obvious that we did want to be seen on the telephone.

And somewhere, the 19th century futurists and Picturephone engineers are likely puzzled but somehow satisfied that their vision of a videophone future has been finally realized, even if they got a big part of it wrong: that the phone itself wasn't really needed at all.

It's just me I guess but I don't like using the computer as a phone.  It sounds nice but in reality why answer an important call on the computer?  Will the headset work when the doctor calls?  Will the voicemail work correctly?  Will caller ID work?  Will I hear the ringing from the other room?   I'm just trying to find an easy way to add video to a regular  phone call.

There is a new tool that helps you to do these things called +Plus My Reach... I'm honored to be selected as their first "Partner" as using their tool is closely tied to using Hangouts on Air (HOA).

I've got multiple ways to help individuals and businesses use HOA well so it is a natural fit here... let's them focus on the data tool whilst I can help users get better with the Event and Hangouts part.

Check out the tool now. You can even run a report on somebody else's HOA event if you like.

New Update for Hangout App on Android...
Check out the details below. Rolling out now

#AndroidHangouts   #HangoutsApp   #MobileHangouts  
Hangouts 2.1 for Android: SMS improvements and a homescreen widget

Today we’re launching the newest version of Hangouts for Android, rolling out to the Play store ( over the next few days. Highlights include:

- Merged conversations: SMS and Hangout conversations with the same recipient are now combined into a single conversation. You can control whether you want to send a message via Hangouts or SMS with the flip of a switch, and different message types will be easy to tell apart in the conversation. Of course, you can always merge and unmerge conversations if you’d like.

- Simplified contact list: now there’s two main sections in contacts — People you Hangout With, and Phone Contacts — making it simpler to navigate, and easier to use for SMS.

- Homescreen widget: add the Hangouts widget to your homescreen for quick access to your recent conversations.

- Performance improvements: today’s update includes better quality video calls, as well as improved SMS and MMS reliability.

The new version will be available in the Play store ( this week, so download or update and let us know what you think!

What should a book be? Surprising answer by respected author
Many of us know that +David Amerland is a respected author and speaker. I'd say he is a speaker of words of brilliance.
Watch these 23 seconds to hear what I mean.

+David Amerland I'm beginning to not expect less from you! Seriously, A+ insight into what a book should be and the difference between a lot of useless, sometimes even misinformation that is being spread around and solid information that edifies readers and helps them solve their real problems. Merci

Thanks +Ronnie Bincer and +Scott Scowcroft for making it available.

Building Authority and the Challenge of Time
There is a lot to see & learn here in this HOA session with +David Amerland hosted by +Teodora Petkova recently, but I want to draw your attention to 2 interesting segments near the end of the video...

Myself and +Christine DeGraff will be interviewing David on the #TNTBootcamp  segment Monday 21-April when we talk about Techniques used by Influencers re. Influence Marketing. Watch that show via this event:

Click the following time stamps to start the segments, or click the first one and let it run to the last time marked below. I wish there was a way to make a post that just contained a segment of a video without downloading editing and uploading I don't know how to do that, nor if it would be legal to do so.

Building Authority - An Influencer Must Have Authority
Listen to what David has to say starting at 36:50 in the video

The Challenge of Time - And Working Online... are we being real?
This is very interesting how David speaks of the challenge of time and how it may be easier for individuals or smaller groups to manage it starting at 39:30 and ending at 46:25 in the video.

Looks like two great snippets of the video (I'm sure there are more) that could be featured using The Scott Treatment, right +Scott Scowcroft (valuable segments of HOAs that are turned into shorter "Golden Nuggets" videos.
