In this webinar, you'll learn about insights from NASA's Google+ rollout since they began actively using the tool several months ago, how it is making an impact today, and where they envision taking it. You'll also hear directly from Google on how they see government agencies using the platform, and what tricks you can employ to make it more effective.
