If you're lost in the argument of whether or not Google+ is a ghost town or the walking dead, you might be missing out on the power of video made possible through Google Hangouts.

Google+ Hangouts aren't for everyone, but we've built a strong community of Community Managers the past two years via My Community Manager #CMGRHangout.

This presentation shares what a week in the life of a Google+ Hangout On Air (HOA) show looks like as well as presents benefits of using Google+ Hangouts, tips for running them smoothly and additional use case suggestions including team meetings, worldwide hackathons, Q&A, product demonstrations, sales presentations and keeping in touch with distant friends and family.

Huge thanks to Liana Kreamer for the invitation to share this at Social Media Breakfast: Waterloo Region (#smbWR).
