In one of my roles as a social media / content manager, I am currently looking into the world of webinars, and online group discussions – and specifically the pro’s and cons of Google+
The idea is to schedule a regular event for discussions around particular area of business.
The content/format is still under discussion, but I am more concerned right now with the broadcast method.
When Google+ launched, I was as excited as the next geek, (but then I was excited about Google Wave, nuff said).
Plenty of people seemed to be using it for one-off events, regular scheduled hangouts and general chatting.
However, I wonder if the hype had passed, or if people were put off from using it, if they were not a Google+ user.
I took to Twitter, to find out:
My concern is that it is does appear to be “social media” people who are currently using it.
Is it a barrier to the less techno-lusty? (this business is not focused on social media, so will need to cross a wide interest and ability level)
I’d love to know your thoughts?
If you have hosted a hangout, have you found your users are happy to get onboard?
