Google+ is one of the latest entries into the social web. It launched over summer and has a few features you might be interested in checking out from Hangouts where you can video chat with up to 9 other people and Circles where you can categorize the people you know into groupings you define.
I have no doubt, we’ll have many posts on it in the coming months, for now, if you’d like an invite, email me and I’ll get you one.

While it is still in its infancy, there are quite a few things happening there already. For instance, NSPA Executive Director Logan Aimone hosted a Hangout on Friday to talk about “The Best Thing I Learned on Summer Vacation.”
More from us later on how this tool can be best used in scholastic journalism. For now, if you need an invite, let me know and I’ll get you one.
