Google Hangouts: so much gold

In a Fast Company article yesterday about the soon-to-be social media domination of Google Plus, they note that a loan company uses Hangouts to “educate veterans about how to use their VA benefit to get a home loan over Hangouts.”

But here’s where it gets interesting… That same loan company

“also partners with a nonprofit to use Hangouts for “virtual walks”–using able-bodied citizens to visit locations and be the virtual eyes and ears for disabled vets over Hangouts.”

Brilliant.

So – people of the public service sector, community management teams, and folks who want to do good and awesome things in the world – are you using Google Hangouts?

What magic can you create with the device you already have in your pocket/bag, a little bit of love, and some awesomeness?

Virtual reference desks via hangout? On-Air programs (Storytimes?)? Hosted events? Author talks?

Make it happen, team. Make it happen. There’s so much awesome stuff here. For libraries, this is a no-brainer extension of your physical brand and virtual “place.”
