Hangouts get Creative

So Google+ opened to the public today and added a bunch of new features many of which have to do with Hangouts. I mentioned in an earlier post that I was intrigued from the get go, about the ability to interact with a group of people in real time; face to face to face.

The entire Google+ Project gang have done an outstanding job of adding all kinds of functionality to the medium. Hangouts with Extras have some very useful bits.. you can split the screen and add docs, you can write notes and have others in the hangout add to the notes.

You can use the sketchpad and have others use it too.. at the  same time.. the applications of this one piece are mind-boggling!

Teaching, board meetings, Medical meetings [where the Dr can draw out the info for you] for those of us who are more visual, this will be an amazing tool.

just prior to jumping out of a hangout earlier today I took a screenshot of the collaborative artwork we created..Thanks +Chad Giardina Just noodling around to see what was possible we quickly realized we could both draw and add to the sketchpad at the same time. That’s one of my dogs (Cosette) and Chad added the Ruff  Ruff bubble..

Takes me back a few years too.. had s the WordArt which was a staple of the old Microsoft Publisher..

I think this will be a very effective tool for teaching long distance, for family that is far removed from each other and for strategy sessions: The list of business applications is endless.. use your imagination..

Love the whole concept but hey I already said that.. tons.. Hats off to all the Google+ Project people and the hangout folks too

I love twitter

I love the Twitter platform.
Why 140 characters?

Excerpt from How Twitter Was Born Dom Sagolla @dom
‘The service was only a few months old when the group acquired Twitter.com and re-branded. Back then, we had no character limit on our system. Messages longer than 160 characters (the common SMS carrier limit) were split into multiple texts and delivered (somewhat) sequentially. There were other bugs, and a mounting SMS bill. The team decided to place a limit on the number of characters that would go out via SMS for each post. They settled on 140, in order to leave room for the username and the colon in front of the message. In February of 2007 @Jack wrote something which inspired me to get started on this project: “One could change the world with one hundred and forty characters.” ‘

People are so fascinating and you get a glimpse into their random thoughts, which can be funny, heart wrenching and some times just plain baffling! Always interesting and a great jump-off point for a conversation, or an idea which may work well for your business. This platform alone has totally changed the way business interacts with the consumer. People to People transcends the old corporate style of directors and CEO’s being so far removed from the everyday

    Dear Elaine,

    Thank you for speaking at the Power Up Your Sales ½ Day Conference.

    The turnout was right on target and I am sure that was due to the knowledge and expertise of our speakers.  It came across and I've had nothing but rave reviews from our attendees. 

    I certainly think we could have made a day out of it.  The women really loved the information you had to share on Google+.

    Thank you again and all the best success to you.

    With thanks,

  • Tana Heminsley

    I've had the privilege of getting to "hangout" twice so far on Google + as part of Elaine's show - Business Banter Plus.

    Each time Elaine has been incredible at helping myself and the others in the session to feel welcomed and supported to be our best on the call.

    From her professionalism in getting us to the hangout and all the logistics that go along with it, to the warmth and fun we had on the call as she guided the conversation; to her ability to share the word in the social sphere; Elaine modeled authentic leadership throughout.

    We even had some fun with the special effects in our first hangout, which added to the experience as well.

    I'd recommend Elaine to anyone creating an online presence and wanting to reach the world with their work. And she'll make sure you have fun while creating a successful experience. Thank you Elaine  Tana Heminsley Author, CEO and Founder, Authentic Leadership Global, Inc.

  • Tammy Plunkett

    "After having Elaine Lindsay optimize my search and social profiles, starting with the about tab on my Google+ profile,  I was contacted by someone who was looking for a graduate of a specific class I had taken 2 years ago.
    (The searcher typed was "Practitioner using Intuition Intensive by Dr. Mona Lisa Schulz" and I came up 5th after Mona Lisa herself :) )
    We are now collaborating on several speaking opportunities. It was the first time that someone found me and hired me straight from a Google search." 
    Great talk you gave today, I always learn something more every time!

    I have tremendous respect for people who know their work inside and out. It’s a joy to watch them do their work: it appears effortless and joyful. This is the case with Elaine.

    Social media consultants and SEO professionals are in abundance…though, there is a scarcity of very competent, knowledgeable people in the industry.  Luckily, in Elaine Lindsay, you've found a gem.  My company came to Elaine with some complex social media and search engine problems and Elaine treated my company as if it were hers making sure to do the work necessary to execute on our goals.  Needless to say, we've found our social media and SEO professional.
