The big new thing in social media for 2011 was Google+. Google+ is both a brand new social network, and a company wide initiative to add social features to Google products.
In this talk Martin Hamilton (Loughborough University) and William Florance (Google) will take a look at key Google+ features from an institutional perspective. This will include potential applications for online teaching and learning, research collaboration and IT support.
The talk will cover features that are unique to Google+, such as Hangouts and Circles. It will also discuss features that overlap with existing systems and services - e.g. the potential use of Google+ for blogging, and brand management through Google+ Pages.
