For the class project creating the Google+ Hangout, my job was to market and promote the hangout. I created posts for both Facebook and Twitter that would promote this event. I also retweeted many of my classmates posts. I felt like all bombarding the audience of our Facebook and Twitter accounts was not necessarily the most effective way to get our point across so i also did a lot of verbal promotion of the event. I cannot really put any proof of that in this post but I know my roommate and I watched the Hangout together and that 5 of my other friends watched it from their rooms as well. I am hoping other people got their friends to watch and to spread the word about the event. Overall I would say that there were definitely some hangups and wrinkles that should be ironed out if this were to ever happen again in the future, but for the first try I would say we did a good job.
