Fox News wants you to hangout with US presidential candidates on Google+

We’ve already taken an in-depth look at how journalists can use Google+ in their arsenal of tools, and with Google+ finally launching pages for brands, we’re bound to see their own networks and publications getting in on the game.

Fox News, one of the first news networks to create a brand page on Google+, is once again taking the lead on this one. The network is going to be using the Google+ Hangout feature for live interviews of the Republican presidential candidates.

Another conference. “Great.”

This one’s different, trust us. Our new event for New York is focused on quality, not quantity.

Google+ Hangouts provide limitless opportunities to interact with the audience, and by the looks of it, the Fox News experience won’t be any different, with Google+ users able to ask the presidential candidates questions during the live discussion.

Anchor Bret Baier will be leading the discussions, and the first presidential candidate to grace Google+ users’ computer screens is Governor Mitt Romney, slated for an interview on November 15.

Google+ Hangouts have made headlines in the past when Archbishop Desmond Tutu and the Dalai Lama literally hung out on Google+, preceded by celebrities like Will.I.Am and Felicia Day.
