Live Discussion Transcript
Google+, a new social network created by the search-engine company, offers features such as live video "Hangouts" and gives people the opportunity to share information with distinct groups of people.
It can also influence how your organization's online content is displayed in Google searches.
So how can your organization use these features? Should your nonprofit invest time and money into developing a Google+ presence? And which nonprofits are effectively using Google+?
Below is the transcript of a live online discussion in which a Google staff member and a nonprofit expert answered questions about the new social network.
Five nonprofit workers who answer a question on The Chronicle's Google+ page will also be selected to participate in a private Google Hangout with The Chronicle and our expert guests on Friday, January 27, at 1 p.m. U.S. Eastern time
