Plugged in on Google + - Have you Tried it Yet?

By
Real Estate Agent with RI Real Estate Services ~ 401-529-7849~ RI Waterfront Real Estate

Plugged in on Google + - Have you Tried it Yet?  I call it a Google+ hoe down but it's actually Google+a 'hangout' on Google + and Christine Pappas, Dave Keys and myself did the hang out thing the other night.  Had no clue how to do this but Christine and Dave walked me through and we had a 'hangout' shortly - it was amazing...how to have better connectivity, see your associates from the blogoshphere, chat, laugh....i could hear with earbuds but my pc microphone I could not get to work (mac users please don't gloat) so i had to type in the box which was a pain while Christine and Dave could talk, I could hear them. I figured this out today (made a radio shack run for a mic)..this Google + is such an amazing tool.  The interactivity with video/voice is amazing and voila you are connected.  You better have clothes on when the video is streaming at the computer though!  And forget the hair thing...

Think of the pow wows on line that can be had (i agree not enough time in the day to do all this is there?) But it is far better than Facebooking someone I believe.  Like to see how the skype with Facebook will be but this Google + will be hard to beat I believe.
  It is still early in the infancy of this product right now but i like it.  Plugged in on Google + - Have you Tried it Yet?

I wanted to try this but it wasn't available for me yet.  I did leave my email to sign up as soon as it was available for me.  Sounds like fun!

Ginny, Haven't tried that aspect yet.  Just not sure how much extra time I have for one more outlet, not getting everything I want done on the existing platforms!

Sherri, i like the connectivity in small groups better...

Mike, we shall see won't we...

BLiz, i do hear you- i do think the hangout thing is better than a conference call for sure but being able to juggle multiple platforms becomes time consuming...i'm hearing that multi tasking is not good for the brain now!

Ginny,

Sounds like a very useful tool. I guess it will have to fit in with all the other social avenues. Tough juggling the social media on the internet.

 

 

Make it a great day !!

Good morning Ginny,

Thanks for the latest info on what is out there to connect. I 'm swamped with real estate and just got an iPad so the learning curve is in play! Barely enough time to keep up with the platforms I'm engaged in!!

Thanks for the heads up.  I didn't know about the voice capability. Is this going to be the new Skype?  Lookout Microsoft who just bought Skype.  These guys are really at each other.....
