People that are currently online will appear higher in the list, so you won’t have to sift through the list. You can also hover your mouse over an individual to see his or her online status. To invite someone, just click on a person’s face and he or she will be added to your invite list. Once you’ve compiled your list, click the Invite button and start chatting.
A Google+ Hangout is a great way to interact with your community whether it’s for customer support, product demos, or just creating conversation. So before you hit “share,” try “invite” instead.
