How the New Google+ Events Can Support Your Nonprofit Event

How the New Google+ Events Can Support Your Nonprofit Event | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

Robin Good: Up until today most businesses have been using Facebook Events and other event marketing platforms to promote anything live, from their own workshops to conferences and live webinars.

 

Now, Google+ has a competing event marketing and promotion service which provides a valid alternative.

 

Key features include:

 

Full integration with Google Calendar—users can view and respond to your events on Google Calendar.

 

Real-time Event Photo Stream—all attendees can contribute directly to one shared photo collection.

 

Mobile Integration—Party Mode allows guests to snap and share photos in real time from their phones.

 

Easy Email Reminders—automated reminders are sent out to your confirmed guest list, along with an update that the event is starting.

 

Events On Air—allows your event to go public. Anyone can find the event page of a public event, view and upload photos, share the event with friends and make comments.

 

Hangout Integration—easily schedule and host virtual meetings and events that can be accessed via a laptop or smartphone by up to 10 guests.

 

Event Analytics—gain insight into offsite activities that involve your Google+ Event via Google’s Social Reporting Tool.

 

If you want to find out rapidly how to use Google+ Events and to what elements to pay particular attention this article is for you.

 

Useful. Informative. 7/10

One annoying feature, or maybe I can't find the place in my settings, but I get random invites from random people to events and it automatically gets on my google calendar and creates clutter. I wish I could flip a switch that says not to add the event to my calendar.

Beth, thanks for sharing the issues you have encountered. I don't see that switch yet either.

Screen-Sharing Comes To Google+ Hangouts

Screen-Sharing Comes To Google+ Hangouts | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

If you were waiting for Google to release a screen-sharing feature inside the Hangout real-time collaboration platform, that time has come.

 

In the next 48 hours Google will be rolling out to all Google+ users the ability to screen-share during any hangout session.

 

From Christopher Johnson G+ post: "When we launched Hangouts with Extras last September, we wanted to test new features and get feedback from users.

 

We’ve learned a lot over the past few months, and today we’re rolling out a new Hangouts look and feel that incorporates some of the “extras,” and better reflects Google’s overall design ( http://goo.gl/gG1NA ).

 

Highlights include:

 

- Screensharing: share what’s on your computer screen with everyone in the hangout. This is the first of many extras we’re graduating to Hangouts proper.

 

- Bigger video: we’ve put more emphasis on the live video itself by optimizing white space and other screen elements."

7 Reasons Why Google+ Drives Hyperactive Engagement

7 Reasons Why Google+ Drives Hyperactive Engagement | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

Post by Jeff Bullas very interesting observations

 

"The Google+ Project has drawn the innovators and early adopters into its web and it is producing activities that have surprised myself and others."

 

Intro:

 

In 1962 Everett Rogers published the book “Diffusion of Innovations” where he synthesized research from over 508 diffusion studies and produced a theory that proposed 4 main elements that influence the spread of an idea.

 

1. The Innovation

An idea, practice or object that is perceived as new

 

2. Communication Channels

The means by which messages get from one individual to another

 

3. Time

The relative speed with which an innovation is adopted by members of the social system

 

4. The Social System

The people that are engaged in joint problem solving to achieve a common goal

 

He also outlined the following adopter categories that reveal the percentages of the types of participants that are involved in the innovation cycle.
