Introducing Google+ Events
In late June 2012, Google+ introduced a new feature: Google+ Events, a social event management tool that works across the Google+ network. In this article, I show you how to add, manage, and share events on Google+; integrate events with Google calendar; and share event photos in real time.
Exploring Google+ Events
Google+ makes it easy to create and manage a wide variety of events, including:
- Private events, such as family gatherings, parties with friends, or meetings with selected colleagues. One of the bonuses of using Google+ for your private events is the ability to use Party Mode, which enables guests to take and share events photos in real time.
- Public events, such as workshops, conferences, and training courses[md]both in person and online. Other Google+ users can share your events, giving them added exposure.
- Google+ Hangouts. A hangout is a live video chat with up to 9 other Google+ users.
- Google+ Hangouts On Air. Hangouts On Air enable you to broadcast your hangout live on the web and save it as a YouTube video for later playback.
