Some comments from those who voted for Google +/Hangout
“implementing it in the classroom this year and use for continuing education. This has become one of my favorite tools to use. It should have been number one but I don’t use it as much as the others due to the fact that not all that I correspond with use it. I do love my Google Classroom and find it easy to navigate and use. You can do just about anything you need.” Virginia Goen, 2015
“Google+ is very good for deep conversations and the live Hangouts feature works well. It is a small select community for me at G+.” Harold Jarche, 2014
