There have always been many ways to Invite People Into your Hangout Filmstrip but lots of people still struggle with helping people enter or join the call.

Perhaps that is why Google just added a few more easy-peasy options to invite people into your Hangout Video Call or Hangout on Air (HOA) filmstrip.

You can now press a Gmail "M" logo or press a G+ logo to have the invitation link automatically included in a Gmail Email message or a Google+ Post respectively... who sees that email or post is up to you.

You'll see these options after using the "Invite People" icon at the top of the video call interface (1) if you are the HOA Host or it is a Hangout Video Call.

Learn more about hangouts of all types via a self-paced video training course ( ) or via an Interactive Membership Community ( ).

Maybe Blab, and its ease of getting people into the 'video room' has encouraged this update.

The important thing to remember if you're affected is that you are not alone. If you have prostate cancer or if you're the partner, family or friend of someone affected, it may help you to blab with someone who has been there. +Scott Silverstine will be hosting a Blab conversation on #ProstateCancer , join in the conversation.

On September 15 at Noon EDT Dr. Jamin Brahmbhatt, a leading expert on men's health, a previous guest on FOX, CNN and Yahoo Health, and a robotic surgeon will turn up the volume concerning prostate cancer on the Prostate Cancer Blab:

Blabbing early about prostate cancer can save your life! Why wait?

This is one of the reservoirs on Pikes Peak (N. Catamount). I'd guess we are at about 9,000 feet above sea level here. Some of the Aspen trees are turning yellow.

New look and lack of the "+" or the Hangouts Logo

Google has been updating their logos all over the place, today is the first time I've seen it inside the Hangouts/HOA Interface.

Any thoughts?

View of my campsite last weekend near Terryall Colorado. Wonderful weekend to be camping (the weekend before Labor Day) as literally nobody was around Friday night and only one other camper/tent showed up on Saturday afternoon in the area near us.

Did you know that uploading a video to Facebook that you did not make/own is not legal? Apparently many video uploaders on FB didn't know that.

Soon FB videos will go through a more robust Content ID system similar to what YouTube has had in place for many years now. Read more about the details as well as get to the FB announcement via the linked +ReelSEO​ post below.

Facebook Content ID for Video is Coming, Addresses Freebooting

Freebooted videos on Facebook are a serious issue for many creators, but Facebook has now promised more robust rights management for licensed video content.
