Google Hangouts Help – Get It Now!
Since you're here, it's pretty obvious that you know about the power and potential of Google Hangouts. And it's also a pretty good guess that you're here seeking help with Google Hangouts. So don't feel bad! Despite what your internal dialogue may be saying, it's not you! You're not stupid, and you're not alone.
Google Hangouts are incredibly valuable, powerful things. The technology is amazing. But like much of the whole Google+ suite of products, it's interface and instruction set seems to have been specifically tasked to the proverbial room full of monkeys (possibly not even trained).
I sometimes wonder if Google specifically set out to make the entire hot mess as difficult to use as possible. Important pieces of the puzzle are scattered hither and yon… sometimes across more than one site. The interface at one platform bears no resemblance to the interface at another (YouTube and Google+1 being the worst and most salient example).
The whole thing is confusing, frustrating and aggravating, even for someone like me who spends all-day-every-day working with software and interfaces. And it's left many folks scratching their heads and feeling incredibly stupid for not getting it.
For the intrepid, you can actually learn more about Google Hangouts at Google's own site (note: sure makes it all looks so appealing and easy)!
Google Hangouts – This Ain't Facebook, Baby!
In this author's humble opinion (which I can only hope does not get me in trouble with the “Big G” – and by that I do not mean “God”), Google's attempt at building a social network (Google+) and everything else that goes with it is nothing less than roadkill on a dungheap.
Now don't get me wrong. It may, in fact, ultimately prove a huge success. But this is more far more a testament to Google's arm-twistingly coercive measures and massive influence in the marketplace than to the elegance and user-friendliness of the platform. Of which there is so little as to be none.
I sometimes wonder if the implementation of Google's so-called and rather overly optimistically euphemistic “Facebook killer” was not entirely contracted out to Rube Goldberg Inc, or maybe the Three Stooges. This is not to say Facebook's interface has been exactly stellar, either. But it was never as bad as Google+, even at the start.
Further, Facebook has put a lot of effort into improving the interface over the years. With time, users have become familiar with it's peculiarities, and most are comfortable with it. And there's actually some logic and consistency to Facebook.
The general consensus seems to be that even on a bad day – and with all it's quirks – the Facebook interface is far and away more intuitive and easier to use than the Google+/YouTube smashup.
Like I said: roadkill on a dungheap.
