Although I haven’t quite slotted Google+ into my Social Media tool-set as effectively as I should have yet, I am finding I use Google Hangout’s more and more. For me this is proving to be a great fuel saver and technology permitting is as effective as face to face meetings. Recently I used the hangout feature of Google+ to chat with my development team, speak with clients and just this morning we held our first Google Hangout for the BNI South Wales Launch Team.
There is a great use of technology here where the main video is by default the Hangout creator but it automatically switches to the video of the person speaking as soon as it detects their voice. Holding these online video conferences is going to prove hugely popular for me going forward as I strive to keep fuel costs to a minimum and the saving on travelling time will be huge.
