    Hey y'all! We're hosting a hangout for the next hour on our Google+ page so stop by if you'd like to meet Maddie and/or myself and have a wee peek at HubPages HQ.

    Also, let us know if you think there might be any use for group video chat in the future (e.g. as a quick way to answer contest questions, discuss WTI themes, do other stuff).

    Wheee!

      I liked the photos of you guys hanging out in the office.  What's up with the salt shaker?  Nice photo of it and the HubPages sign!  It it to demonstrate that you folks are "salt of the earth" types?  wink

    Google Talk doesn't seem to like my computer even though I fit all the criteria. I spent a rather frustrating 45 minutes trying to get it to work.

    Only caught the last five minutes and that was my first Hangout.  Very impressed with the technology and no doubt something Hubpages can use very well.  Must confess was to scared to say anything though, haha.  Maybe when I've had a few more Hangout sessions and know exactly what's going on!

      Sounds good to me, andyoz! It's a new format to pretty much everyone, so we're on the same page big_smile
      Glad to hear you might be joining us in future hangouts though!

    Big thanks to everyone who joined us in our first hangout! Future hangouts are going to be for HubPages users only (this first one was public), so be sure to add us to your Circles if you want to have access big_smile
    Also, if you have any suggestions for future times that might be good, let me know!
    We'll be announcing future hangouts via our social media channels (and especially our Google+ page), so keep an eye out for 'em!

      yay! It was an awesome hangout Simone. Thanks for the HP office tour! I'm glad I caught the post. It was nice to see writers I follow as well.

      Maybe we can do an agenda wish list??? We submit questions or topics for discussion??? Then you pick the topic when you announce the next hangout. Just a thought smile

        Choose a time wherein I can participate as well. Maybe two hours before this one? It was 12 in the night - this time.

      maybe next one will not be in the middle of a rehearsal schedule where I am always exhausted at that time of day.
