I'd not thought about the sneaky extra  *s*. Note to self : add both keywords, hangouts and hangout  to my YouTube videos. Thanks +Ronnie Bincer

Special Tool for Finding Google+ Events & HOA Events
Looks like some great stuff from +CircleCount came out while I was traveling so I've not dug into the details yet, but looks quite good at first glance.

If you take a look at an event that has past you can see some details re. who was there live, commenting, attending, etc. If you look at one that has yet to happen, you'll see different info... get even more info by clicking on the "Show Details" link.

Search for a date range, a topic within a date range, and more. Cool

Google+ Events on CircleCount
http://www.circlecount.com/events/

Today we are launching a new search and analysis tool for Google+ Events.

On the main page (linked above) you will find current Google+ Events. You will be able 
► to check for more events on other days with a date selector
► to search for events by keywords
► add new events that are not yet in our index

Every event is linked on this page to an analysis page where you can find more information about this event, like
► the most plusoned comments on the event
► the persons/pages with the most followers having commented on this event
► all commenters of this event
► all guests of this event who are going/went to the event

What could be a better example than an event with +Mark Traphagen, +Ronnie Bincer, +Jeff Sieh, +Wade Harman, +Eric Enge, +martin shervington, +David Amerland (ordered by their Google-ID ;) )?
Check out this event by +Plus Your Business! at:
www.circlecount.com/event/?id=camdfhgipgn6jsomb94h3ekaukk

What's the first event you will add on this page?

#circlecountupdate #events #analytics

Special thanks to the professional team of +Quote Mirror for providing the background image for this and many more upcoming posts. Please check out their awesome quotes and graphics!

How cool!  Enjoy getting to hangout live not e-Memorex.  I've stayed there, +Ronnie Bincer.  Lovely hotel. There's a cool little breakfast spot just down past the marina where you can sit outside and look at the water.  Concierge may know where it is.

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 http://goo.gl/ujenXX

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/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 and sign up at bit.ly/HangoutMastery

+Ronnie Bincer I made it perfectly clear that I was referring to the name.   My question was sincere - I was wondering if the Google+ consultants were still using that name - and if they would even use it conferences like, LONG after Google stopped using it.  

Can you find a single example of an Google executive using the name in the past several months? or even in the past year?   If so, could you post a referral link?   I have my own opinion on where they are going with this, but I don't want to deal with all the personal attacks that will result if I express that here.

Using Comment Tracker & the Lower Third Together
The Hangout Toolbox's Lower Third app is commonly used together with the stand-alone Comment Tracker app. Here's a tip for using them together well.

The Comment Tracker adds great value to your HOA by allowing you to bring live viewer's comments into your show.

The stand-alone Comment Tracker tool (the green 'double bubble' version, not the one from the Toolbox) is used a lot since it allows the comments from HOA Events to be tracked where the version of the Comment Tracker that is part of the Hangout Toolbox does not.

The Comment Tracker Tip - load up the (1) Toolbox/Lower Third 1st and then turn on the (2) Stand-alone Comment Tracker tool. When done in this order, the display of the Comments (as shown here) will not include the lower third image.

If you want to add the branding of your lower third on top of the comments displayed, then turn on the comment tracker first, and there is a good chance the comments displayed will also show the lower third graphic as well (but it may cover up some of the comments).

Thanks to +Denise Wakeman for her cameo here ;-)
You can get the stand-alone comment tracker from this link:
http://www.allmyplus.com/comment-tracker/ it is created by +Gerwin Sturm ... Thanks Gerwin!

We offer full training on how to Master the Comment Tracker App (it can get kinda tricky making it work with events) as part of the many training sessions offered to Hangout Mastery members.

Join us in the Hangout Mastery membership to get the Comment Tracker training and much more by visiting www.bit.ly/HangoutMastery and signing up for membership.

Get the training you want from the large list of recorded and live training sessions, and join into the included private Community. Stay around as long as you like with our monthly membership model & you can cancel at any time. Hope to see you on the inside!

Live Streaming with Periscope
Twitter's new live video streaming app says "Up Periscope!" today - at least for iOS.
h/t: +Peggy K 
Peggy K originally shared:
 
Twitter's Live Broadcasting app Periscope now available for iOS

Now iOS users have two Twitter live broadcasting options, the much-talked-about Meerkat, and now Periscope (which was purchased by Twitter in January). 

I wonder when Android users will get the same options?
And will this inspire Google and Facebook to introduce similar apps?

Read a review of Periscope by +Greg Finn at +Marketing Land :
http://marketingland.com/twitter-launches-periscope-its-live-streaming-meerkat-competitor-122983

Periscope for iOS
https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/id972909677

Meerkat for iOS

+Ronnie Bincer Thanks for the tips. I've been seeing the buzz around #meerkat  and just recently saw a video on #techcrunch  about #periscope  . Too bad it's just for iOS at this time. I don't buy over-hyped stuff [I'm looking at you Apple]

Tips for looking better in a Hangout Video Call or HOA

How NOT to look ugly on a webcam

Aside from the Enhanced Features  that Google added to Hangouts onAir, here are additional tips to pay attention to if you want to look great on camera.

Pay extra attention to your environment (background) and the fact that you need to be wired in.

YouTube Cards - a handy guide to making them work on your videos
YouTube recently rolled out Cards, which will eventually replace annotations so says YouTube... read up on how to make them work for your youtube videos.

I've posted on how these work with Hangout on Air live broadcasts http://goo.gl/Alb7qs and it turns out you can go back and edit them after the broadcast ends (i.e. change where they first show up in the timeline as well as other edits).

To me one of the key reasons we're seeing these Cards show up is their ability to actually work on Mobile devices... something that annotations just can't do.

This article by +ReelSEO covers lots of details on the new interactive cards, so check it out and see what you think.

Will you be adding Cards to many of your 'older' videos?

Here is a great Gathering of HOAs... and other interesting posts to check out for your weekend learning time. Thanks to +Mick Sharpe for the massive effort to do this on a weekly basis.
 
Shining Shamrocks

I hope any friggatriskaidekaphobia has subsided and the Ides passed without incident for you. I also hope you’ve had a chance to partake of a little of the black and white gold and embrace your inner green this week - gotta love Paddy’s Day! I've also been enjoying the Public Service Announcements this week - in case you didn’t already know:

☑   Never place a chair under an open staircase.
☑   Never place plant pots on an open staircase.
☑   Never kick a cat!

The Public Service Announcements continue with episode 11 of the +Black Lotus * DDoS and Cybersecurity Power Talk* (http://goo.gl/id6Ehe) with password security being discussed by host +Mia Voss and guest expert +Gabriel Murphy. Yes it can be an absolute pain to maintain unique secure passwords for every system you use but it is absolutely essential. A look at biometrics and two step authentication to improve security as well as an overview of password generators and management systems. Well worth 30 minutes of your time.

If you haven’t realised by now my must-see show of the week is the #RayLunchBunch - 30 minutes of stimulating conversation about topics relevant to anyone in business. In Fifty Shades of Green - How to Grow Evergreen Content (http://goo.gl/rI8OWT) +Ray Hiltz, +Jessica Dewell, +B.L. Ochman, +Scott Scowcroft and +Randy Bowden look at the benefits of long lasting content including brand development and building authority. Some top tips about the different ways to create evergreen content through repurposing for different media and a great set of takeouts at the end. And as if to demonstrate the advice given Ray has evergreened the show in Are You Creating Evergreen Content? (http://goo.gl/mYUvW8)

I find a weekly post such as this to be enough of a challenge for me so I have complete admiration for those who undertake a daily task. +Carolyn Capern talks to +Christine DeGraff and +Ronnie Bincer about her latest daily blogging challenge in this week’s TNT Bootcamp (http://goo.gl/xb2ZNV). I was impressed by Carolyn’s thought process as she embarked on this task and her creation methodology - always a good idea to set a time limit particularly if you’re prone to pursuing perfection. Sometimes it’s great to refine and polish a piece but often you can achieve your goal in a much shorter timeframe. Some excellent questions from Christine, Ronnie and the audience keep the #infotainment value high. Enjoy.

You’d better write for people or Google will catch up with you

Another worthwhile PYB Show as +martin shervington talks with +Brian Clark about How to become an authority! (http://goo.gl/Is7tqC). Just listening to how Brian developed Copyblogger will provide some valuable lessons for your own business. In terms of differentiation you can’t go wrong with write book quality content and publish it freely on your website! I particularly liked the shift from opt-in lists to a membership model - people do like to be part of a club. And for those that think everything has been done and there are no uncrowded spaces Brian shows that putting your own stamp on what you do and finding your unique audience can make the difference. Great stuff.

♪ ♫ Got to make the morning last ♬ ♩

Even though I seem to be running around like a headless chicken these past few months I do take the time to take my time and that is just what +Gina Fiedel advocates in The Slow Web Groovy Connection: Depth & Reach Or Fast Web Frenzy - Make Haste Slowly (http://goo.gl/NNLuxb). Building on conversations with +Teodora Petkova and +David Kutcher Gina shares her thoughts on taking the time a thing deserves. What If We Slow Down And Accept Whatever Speed Happens To Occur Naturally? Yep, I am a strong believer in it takes as long as it takes (infuriates my wife though!). Actually I think a lot of my approach comes from my appreciation of the natural world and my lifelong addiction to growing things! Read, enjoy and do view the linked videos in the blog article. Wonderful stuff and a little Simon and Garfunkel always goes a long way!

Some valuable lessons for business owners with a web presence in Understanding Online Behavior is Key for a Website Owner (http://goo.gl/cm6h5M) from +David Amerland. This post and the referenced piece from +AJ Kohn are essential reading for those wanting to get the most from their website. Knowing what your visitors are after at any given point is critical to keep your site, and you, front of mind when they need something else. If you can second guess their next need while satisfying their initial question then you are ahead of the game.

A revelation from +John Paul Aguiar as he demonstrates how, in 2014, he attracted 71,000 visits to his blog from his about.me page in How About.me Is A Branding and Traffic Powerhouse (http://goo.gl/kdyJT8). What surprised me was the minimal effort required on his part. It could certainly be worthwhile exploring this as a discovery vehicle. Another task on my list!

A couple of quick little tips

The first from +David Kutcher - the title says it all! When evaluating your Online Presence and how it is being reached by your customers/clients, don't forget your +Google+ Your Business dashboard (http://goo.gl/GnIxDU). David explains that your dashboard can reveal some interesting data that is missing from your normal analytics reports.

The next from +Ana Hoffman If you don't optimize your blog images, you throttle your site speed (http://goo.gl/QMAh2J). Ana shares some handy tools to keep your image size within reasonable bounds. Whatever tool or method you choose it is an important issue - your visitors may not thank you directly but they probably won’t leave your site while waiting for your images to appear!

Thinkers corner

+Bruce Marko wants us to throw away the numbers in Freestyle Content (http://goo.gl/OjleJy). I think there is great value in coming at something with your own unique point of view (something that Brian Clark talks about in this week’s PYB Show too). The formulaic is exactly that, very little to set it apart from the majority of other content. The other thing I took from this piece of #MarkoKoolAid is that anything created with this freestyle approach is absolutely honest, a real piece of you, and that in itself can set it apart from all the rest.

A double whammy as Bruce also gave us three golden rules in The age of social media (http://goo.gl/kxOqyP). Everyone is watching you! Well maybe not everyone but certainly enough to put two and two together and come up with six. Always amazes me how many people shoot themselves in the foot when they are engaged in dodgy activities!

And finally…

Giggles galore from Apple Engineer Talks about the New 2015 Macbook (http://goo.gl/6eNe4h). Thanks to +Luc Jallois for throwing this into my stream :-)


Have a great weekend wherever you are

Thanks very much to +Peggy K for pointing out what can and can't be done on our own now. We used to need to contact YouTube support to help get things like this done, but apparently we now can do it on our own (if we know what we are doing ;-)
