Your quick tip today has to do with inviting your audience, your friends, your neighbors, to your hangout.
Now, this tip has to do with the actual invitation at the point that you are starting the hangout, but keep in mind that you are not limited to *only* this time to invite people.
Be sure to send out invitations *before* your hangout, too, whether that is through email, Twitter, Facebook, G+, or snail mail. Hey, walk out the front door and let that neighbor know that he or she can hang out with you on the computer. And, of course there are all sorts of ways to promote your hangout. For this tip, we are talking about the actual process of inviting, as you are starting that hangout.

First thing, start your hangout.
The option you will have is to invite viewers. Now, these are different than those on the hangout. This is who will be allowed to watch the hangout. This can be public, or even just a few people (semi-private).
If you decide that you want to invite more people, or, if you have forgotten someone, no worries. You can still "invite more" on the right-hand side of the Google Hangout event page.
Between steps 4 and 5, in these hangout instructions, you can invite people to hangout with you. This is what this tip is all about!
There you have it! You have participants to "hangout" with, and even some viewers, if you like.
To your success,
