5 Ways to Use Google Hangouts for Outreach

Regardless of how you feel about Google+ and its impact (or lack thereof) on social media, there is one major feature that has captured the attention of Google+ fanatics and everyone else: Google Hangouts (Hangouts.Google.com). Google Hangouts are an enhanced version of video chat, with up to 10 people simultaneously participating in a video chat. The add-on features, such as integrating YouTube videos, Google docs or screen sharing, have only made Google Hangouts even more attractive to people.
