What’s Google+ and How Do I Join?

Social media!  There are so many places to follow us but what if you don’t know how to use it?  That’s OK – we can teach you!!

In December we started experimenting with Google+ hangouts on air.  They are live video chats that give us the opportunity to actually talk with you and show you new products in real life.  We have had so much fun hosting these hangouts that we decided to make them a weekly feature but we know that not everyone is familiar with Google+ (G+) and how to use it.

You’ll need a Google account to set up your profile if you don’t already have one.  Most people have a Google account so that part should be easy.

Next, you’ll want to find DiaperShops.com and Kelly’s Closet on G+.  Here is a direct link to our profile: DiaperShops.com on G+.

Every Wed. at 1:00pm ET we will be hosting these live hangouts on air (video chats) and you can watch and ask your questions.  You don’t have to get dressed or have a video camera to join in but you can chat with us in our special Q&A area!!

To find our weekly #ClothPlus events you can scroll through our profile feed to find this week’s chat.  Here are a few screenshots from my iPad.  Note: You’ll need to actually download the Google+ app if you are on iPad or iPhone to view and RSVP for the event.

This last screenshot is where you want to RSVP – “Are you going?” and select “Yes!”  When the chat begins you can push the play button and see us live on the screen.  I don’t have screenshots of what the Q&A screen looks like but you can ask your questions by typing them in the Q&A section.  We’ll post your question and answer them on the air.

If you happen to miss the live chat, a very cool feature is that all G+ hangouts are saved on YouTube.  You can watch them anytime you like.  To see our past hangouts: DiaperShops.com on YouTube.

If  you still can’t figure out how to get on G+ here is this week’s hangout.  You should be able to watch it here too.  This week we’re chatting with Maria from Geffen Baby; a new line of products that we’re carrying at Kelly’s Closet.  We are also going to announce when the elusive Fluff Fairy will be released today!!  We hope you’ll join us!
