Would Google+ work well for conference microblogging? Everybody is now using Twitter, but it would be so much nicer to have the messages connected (remember FriendFeed?)

- Btw, I've very interested in theses kinds of discussions as part of my research on how scientists use (micro)blogging, so please feel free to CC me on exchanges you are engaged in (provided you feel comfortable with me eavesdropping). My FF username is coffee001 in case exciting stuff happens there.Jul 4, 2011

- It's my fault, I haven't yet figured out what is going on. My G+ account is not connected to a Gmail account, maybe that is the problem.Jul 4, 2011
- Ironically, I keep coming across interesting G+ discussions through other media - blogs and Twitter... So far G+ now working great for discovery. On Twitter, I almost never read the direct feeds of the people I follow, but I mostly read the saved hashtag searches, for example #oer, #oa, specific conferences, etc.Jul 20, 2011
- I came across this conversation only a few minutes ago, I'm interested in exploring how people use the backchannel to communicate at conferences, and how speakers can take advantage of it.Nov 28, 2011
- Any of you with additional thoughts on this now that Google+ meanwhile also features "Communities"? I am considering using Google+ instead of (or next to) Twitter for our annual european rheumatology convention (EULAR) next week in Madrid, any tips/hints?
We have the "Rheumatology World" (private) community (open to join however) with several subsections including one entitled Conferences, but I am still thinking of how to deal with the issue posted earlier in this thread: covering multiple sessions, it would be nice if there could be sub-subsections in G+ communities :-) ?
I will use hashtag #EULAR2013 / Thanks for any advice, greetz from the Netherlands, MichielJun 5, 2013
