If you haven’t every checked out Google+, or have done so lately, give it a try. It’s got a lot going for it, and is getting better all the time. We anticipate making greater use of it in coming months. It’s Communities have more features than Facebook Groups, it’s integrated with Google Calendar & Events (Event Management). We’ve been impressed with Google’s video conferencing features (Hangouts).
