Will.I.Am gets Google homepage promotion before Hangout session


Google is catching on fast to the potential of getting artists to hang out in, er, Hangout. The video chat feature of its Google+ social network was used early on by some enterprising artists – you might remember our interview with Daria Musk on that score – but now Google is promoting the idea itself. The highest profile example yet came on Friday, when Will.I.Am saw his Google+ profile promoted on the Google search homepage itself, to advertise a Black Eyed Peas fan-Hangout session before a gig. Google is also showing off artists’ Google+ followings by displaying how many ‘Circles’ they have been added to (the semi-equivalent of followers on Twitter and fans on Facebook). Will has more than 270,000. Source: VentureBeat
