Google Plus Huddles
If you have been following the changes to your Facebook page closely recently, you might have noticed that many of the new changes have been to mirror what one can do in Google+. Of course Facebook has 750 million people and after just 90 days G+ is some where around 20 million. One thing Facebook can't touch though is the "hangout" feature where you can have a video chat with up to 9 others. Soon it is going to be doubled to 20 and I've even noticed that one Google person I follow had a huddle with 31 others. But if you go here you can see some other additions. For example if you are a school that wants to stream an event you can be both in a huddle and stream it online. You can also stream with others and be looking at Google Docs. Best of all you no longer need an invitation, but simply can go here to sign up.
