I interviewed social media strategist and video blogger Chris Brogan at the recent Blogworld New Media Expo conference in Los Angeles. Chris shared with me in this video interview why he’s a big fan of Google Plus Hangouts, along with the benefits of other online video conferencing programs for today’s business professionals.

Google Plus Hangouts Tips: Chris Brogan’s Tips & Benefits for Business

Google Plus Hangouts is the live video chat/conference feature part of Google Plus (Google+). We’ve reported here earlier at ReelSEO several times about Google Hangouts:

  • How you can do a live video conference with up to 10 people
  • How everyone in the hangout can watch a YouTube video together and comment on it
  • How you can arrange a live video conference to collaborate on a shared document or other media.
  • How you record your broadcast and use it for later. (Or, you can simply use any video screen capture tool during the live recording.)
  • How you can use it to chat live, on video, from your mobile device.

Chris is also the author of the soon-to-be-released book, “Google+ for Business: How Google’s Social Network Changes Everything.” He shared a opening-day Blogworld keynote with Guy Kawasaki , talking about how Google+ is their social network of choice as well as why they feel Google+ will become a force to be reckoned with over the next few months.
