How Innovators Use Google Plus Hangouts

Sunny Cadwallader has a unique niche on Google Plus.  She’s using athlete interviews in Hangouts on her sports website and re-posting on Google Plus.  It’s in connection with the NFL which recently began using Hangouts with Draft Day.

Her tagline on G+ is “Sports-social media writer, curator and Jill-of-all-trades in social media” 

Her occupation is listed as  “Sports-Social Media journalist, curator”

Sunny has combined social media with her love of sports and the NFL Draft #MyDraftDay on Google +.  I’m fascinated!

Embedded here is a Google+ post as an example.  You’ll need to click on Sunny’s website to watch the videos – no registration required.

Sunny can be reached on Google+ Here.  Her website Here. Click on her website in the G+ post to go directly to her website and read this entire blog article plus all her other interviews with draft candidates. If you are a sports fan, this is a must see Hangout and website.

We can never imagine how Google Plus Hangouts can and will be used.  

It is still being defined.

Sunny CadwalladerThis is sterling example of how Sunny Cadwallader uses her talents as a sports curator to showcase athletes being considered for the NFL Draft.


Sunny is now one of my favorite innovators on Google Plus.

 A share of the G+ post by +Ronnie Bencer,  The Hangout Helper shows the power of G+ in sharing.  There are more Comments on the share which is part of the G+ benefit. Shares on Google Plus are very important.  If you post and no one comments, that’s fine.  Don’t feel lonely.  If someone +1s or shares your content, feel the Google Love.  If someone writes a blog post about you . . . well, then, do a dance. 

Ronnie’s share currently has 28 comments and 6 shares from his post.  Now that’s Google Love!

And, then . . . if another Influencer comments on your post – live links below.

Scott's comment

Scott’s comment is important because of what he said, “[Sunny’s} post should be required reading for anyone wanting to keep a finger on the pulse of where Google wants to drive this ship”.  Pay attention.  I see people everyday who’ve embraced this platform and become someone they never intended but found an opportunity to shine on Google Plus.

The commentor, Scott Scowcroft, applies the #TST (The SCOTT Treatment) to “teaching” Hangout videos of varying lengths, – 10 minutes to over an hour – edits them for the speaker/author down to promos or easily digestible 2-3 minute segments.  Scott has a knack for adding music and transitions at just the right place to make the point and doesn’t lose the message.  

Widely respected for this talent, I’m not sure Scott started out to be an Influencer or Grand Video Editor he has become, I could be wrong.  However,  it is certainly what we depend on him for now – producing great quality shorts. His community has grown from his writing, video editing and weekly Hangouts with co-host, the lovely +Jessica Dewell on the +Jess+Scott+You show.  Even though it is out of most of our time zones (Pacific – late evening), people will show up from all over the world in all time zones to catch it live.  They have the best guests and the best followers/commentors on their show.  I am one so I know this.  I get to interact with them.  Just lovely!

These are just two examples of what’s happening on Google Plus today.  Come on over to watch and learn.  We’d love to have you.  Need help at first, just ask.  It is a very helpful place.  You can find me at

Hope you enjoy Sunny’s website and her G+ post!  Click on over to Scott Scowcroft and see what he’s up to as well.
