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.

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.
