Google+ wants to be your new Flickr

Google+ wants to be your new Flickr | Social Media and Journalists | Scoop.it

“[Vice president of product for Google+ Bradley] Horowitz wants to increase the power its own post-processing tools, making image editors scalable so that an amateur can use them as easily as a professional photographer. Replacing the very segmented image editing market and creating a tool that is equal parts Instagram, Lightroom, and Photoshop is an especially ambitious (perhaps naive) idea.”

How to Use Google+ Hangouts for Your Business (or Newsroom)

How to Use Google+ Hangouts for Your Business (or Newsroom) | Social Media and Journalists | Scoop.it

Here a tutorial on using Google+ Hangouts for business ... but the tips apply to newsrooms too.

 

"While Google+ Hangouts allow you to connect with up to nine people, the Hangouts on Air feature lets you live broadcast to an unlimited audience. Once the on-air hangout is completed, it automatically becomes a draft recorded video in your YouTube account where you can edit it and then publish on your YouTube channel, and then of course share it from there."

Google+ for Journalists: An Introduction

Google+ for Journalists: An Introduction | Social Media and Journalists | Scoop.it

"[I]n early January [2012], Google launched ‘Search Plus Your World,’ which elevates Google social shares in all users’ Google search results. Aside from a whole host of privacy and anti-trust concerns it raised, this (in my view) put a gun to the heads of journalists and news brands, forcing them onto Google+ for the sake of raising their stories and profiles in search results."

Invite people to a Google+ hangout

Google+ hangouts allow you to have a video chat with up to 10 people at the same time.

 

"Anyone in the hangout can invite anyone else."

 

"While you can invite as many people as you want to join a hangout, you can't have more than 10 people in a hangout at once. If additional people try to enter, they'll be told the hangout is currently full."

 

Hangouts require a one-time free download of "Google voice and video chat."
