How To Add Everyone Who Attended A Google Event/Hangout on Air to a Circle
Have you wanted to add everyone who said "Yes" to or watched your Hangout on Air to a circle? If so, then you're in luck, I will show you how! Why would you want to? People are chose to positively engage with you and your brand should definitely be added to a circle!I hope that this post is able to help someone...
since it does not rely on a specific Google feature (other than the big G showing who attended an event), I hope this post is able to stand the test of time. If not, I apologize that I cannot control the change in tech.
This technique relies on 2 Google Chrome extensions. You may be able to find suitable replacements on Firefox, but I would just recommend using Chrome!Two Google Chrome extensions you will need:
-- Circloscope by the great people at +Circloscope
-- LinkClumpLink Clump will need to be configured....
the main function I use it for is opening multiple links at a time. I then discovered that it can copy multiple URLs at a time as well. The latter is the function we will use for this.
I have included a screenshot in this post for how to configure Link Clump for this task... Essentially, you need to set it to "Copied to Clipboard" and setting a hot key. Also, you'll want to "block repeat links".Then, head to your event page.
Click "View more" under the "Yes/Watched" group... Keep clicking View More until it shows everyone.Then, using your LinkClump shortcut,
select all of the names you can see on the screen. Then paste that into a text document. Scroll the page down to reveal more names. use the LinkClump shortcut, select all ofthe names you see and paste intothe text document. Keep doing this. Don't worry about any overlap at this point.Once you have all of the links in a text document, then you'll open Circloscope.
Inside Circlscope, you will choose the account you want to use. Then, under Data choose "Google+ IDs (TXT/CSV/HTML). [Screenshot below]...Then, just paste in the URLs from your text document,
into here. This will load all of the people from the list. Then, just add all of them to a new or existing circle!
Note: When copying the URLs and pasting into Circloscope, I didn't get all of the names. I am not quite sure why, but it was missing about 10%. I didn't spend the time to debug this, but it was an acceptable loss in my book. I was able to quickly and easily add over 300 people to a circle, people who had engaged with our Hangout, and people who we can notify about future Hangouts!If this was helpful to you,
