Regarding the sudden changes done by Facebook, almost all of their users spent this weekend mulling on its new interface.

Facebook users wnt to the blogosphere, Twitter and Facebook’s arch nemesis – Google Plus – to work out the implications of the news.

Start Your Google + Hangout with YouTube

Written on August 19, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

Start your Google+ Hangout with friends by watching a video on YouTube.

Hangouts is one of the niftiest features of Google+. Aside from being a free service, it also supports ten simultaneous users, and negates the awkwardness in coordinating video call. Simply put, any of your friends can hop in and out of the Hangout any time — provided that you shared it with them. In addition to this, you can also play a YouTube video for all of your friends at the same time.

That said, YouTube rolled out a new option to make it easier for users to jump into one of Hangouts’ video sharing session. Users can now start a Hangout, straight from a YouTube video’s ‘Watch’ page. By simply clicking the option, a window will pop up and prompt a user to choose which Google+ Circles he’d like to share the Hangout and video with.

With Google saying that the Hangouts application is a platform built for enjoying shared experiences with friends, it seems that the Hangouts from YouTube is just the beginning. Users will probably be able to Hangout while playing games, showing off photo galleries, or even when watching live-streamed shows.

But don’t forget, your friends must be in Google+ too and logging in on a regular basis.

Google+ is opening its door a bit wider by offering an easier way of sending friend invites.

Google+ will be kicking off another great feature that will surely boost up their services. Now, aside from inviting friends through emails, you can also encourage other users to join in the Google’s social network just by sharing a link. The company will be having a limit on this feature though. Users will only be able to send invites to 150 friends.

This announcement was recently delivered by Google+ engineer, Balaji Srinivasan, who also wrote in a post: “Since we’re still in field trial, we’re limiting sign-ups from these links to 150 per person for now” (See the video after the break).
