Global Hang Outs on air is a new offering from Google that caught my attention tonight. It got me thinking about the possibilities of reaching a global audience in other ways then just waiting for the MSM. I am just digesting what it means, how it works, and if Isaac Brock could in someway utilize this type of tool. I do recognize that there are many of us who sort of hide behind our aliases. Given the uncertainties of our dealing with the IRS over citizenship issues it is probably understandable. It might be something better suited for an organization like American Citizens Abroad. That said, I wanted to do a short post to draw your attention to it, and get the creative juices churning. Things you can do…
Broadcast publicly. By checking “Enable Hangouts On Air,” you can broadcast your live hangout — from the Google+ stream, your YouTube channel or your website — to the entire world.
See how many viewers you’ve got. During your broadcast, you can look inside the hangout to see how many people are watching live.
Record and re-share. Once you’re off the air, we’ll upload a public recording to your YouTube channel, and to your original Google+ post. This way it’s easy to share and discuss your broadcast after it’s over.
Anyway, just something different to consider.
