Google+ Hangouts to raise money for Comic Relief

Two Google+ Hangouts are to be hosted by Comic Relief this month which will see comedians try to make an online audience laugh for charity.

According to civilsociety.co.uk, this is the first time a charity has used the Google+ Hangouts service, which allows users to participate in a live online video conversation.

Comic Relief’s Hangout Comedy Club will be hosted by Google+ and YouTube. A Laughometer has been created by Google to assist with the fundraising initiative, which uses face recognition software to measure the audience’s reaction.
