Radar is now on Google+ (officially this time)

O'Reilly Radar is extending coverage through Google+.

If you’re a Google+ user and a Radar reader — I’m guessing there’s a lot of overlap in that Venn diagram — you might be interested in following Radar’s new Google+ page.

We’re working out a gameplan for our Google+ coverage that extends and enhances what we do here on the Radar website. In addition to +-specific content, we’ll also be surfacing relevant material from our YouTube archive and passing along intriguing content we encounter in our web travels.

The thing I find most interesting about Google+ is its friction-free engagement. The sharing and commenting functions are dead simple, so I anticipate mining those tools to make Radar’s Google+ presence a strong two-way channel.

As you can gather, we’ll be experimenting with our Google+ offerings quite a bit. If you have things you’d like to see, please chime in through the comments on this post or visit Radar’s Google+ page and chat with us there.

  • As a regular reader I was very interested to read about Radar’s gameplan for Google+. We’ve recently begun using Hangouts for meetings between the UK and the US East and West and so far the experience has been great, with very little video/audio lag. Great for replicating that face-to-face contact without the tech obstacles of some other platforms we’ve trialed.
