Google+ and Hangouts for Nonprofits

  • Aug 15, 2012 · 6:30 PM
  • UNC-TV

What's the deal with Google+?? You probably have seen it or heard about it in the news and online, but what is it really and more importantly how can you use it? Come join us Wednesday August 15th for a presentation about Google+ by +Devin Buell, the Google Field Marketing Lead for the Triangle Region. He'll take you on a walkthrough of Google+, explain the tools and features of the platform and help you set up your account.

Devin Buell is with Google's local field marketing initiative here in the Triangle, whose mission is to empower local organizations and businesses with select Google products such as Google+. In addition, Devin is a Google+ specialist who has worked with hundreds of nonprofits and businesses to improve their online presence. Devin is a North Carolina native at heart and graduated from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a degree in Environmental Science.

RSVP here or on the Google+ event page. Make sure you follow our NCTech4Good +Page, for future events and other great information! (

Also, if you can't attend, we will be streaming the meeting via Google+ "Hangout on Air" so check back here a few minutes before the meeting for the video link!

    Devin Buell has posted his slides (the Overview document) and six useful documents for learning to use Google+ at The video of his presentation is on the NCTech4Good Google+ page, You'll want to skip the first minute. Devin's slides didn't get captured in the video so you'll want to be looking at the Overview document along with the video. His computer screen was captured for the demonstration part. Many thanks to Devin for a very interesting presentation and for making these materials available to us.

    Very good presentation. Unfortunately some of it went over my head as I have been trying to NOT use social media any more than I have to (dumb, I know).
