Blog Post: How to Use Google Hangouts on Air to Boost Your Visibility – I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… I’m a Google Fangirl and I love Hangouts on Air.

Latest Question – Hello, This question may have been asked before so I apologize if it is a repeat. I deleted a comment from my schools Facebook page. It was a rude and disparaging remark towards a teacher. Wondering if I should do any kind of damage control (with the follower, in case they notice their post was removed) or just let it be?
