OVER 250 Nigerian celebrities and influencers from different spheres of engagement including creative artists, event planners, fashion designers, developmental advocates, media celebrities and music enthusiasts gathered in Lagos last week to explore google.com/+ and become users of Google+.
According to Affiong Osuchukwu, Country Maeketing Manager at Google, the aim of the G+ Hub event was to create an avenue for inspiring Nigerian celebs and influencers to use it to help them connect them with their friends, colleagues and followers and promote their interests, brands and activities.
On arrival, guests took fun photos in the Google+ photo booth and visited the Google+ demo stations to get a quick insight into what was ahead.
The main workshop was an in-depth Google+ presentation and live hangout demo by the Google+ team, to show the communities how relevant Google+ is to them in both their personal and professional lives.
The session rounded off with hands-on time for guests to practice what they had just learnt and the opportunity to leave with plenty of Google+ goodies after joining hangouts with each other, posting on their profiles, adding friends to circles and using Google+ SMS.
Commenting on the event, Juliet Ehimuan, Country Manager said that the Google + Hub event would help celebrities learn about Google+. She added that the idea was to give Nigerian celebrities, social influencers and content creators a unique and in-depth look at all the features on Google+.
Meanwhile, Lagos G+ hub was the latest in a series of G+ Hub event being held across Africa to promote celebrities better understand Google+.
