Meeting in the Time of Corona

meeting corona

meeting corona google menuWe're all into social distancing, right? And into soap & water, scrubbing hands while singing "Happy Birthday" (twice, yes?).

Book clubs are affected by the VIRUS, of course. So if you haven't canceled future book club meeting(s), you may be doing so soon.

But don't give up. You can still meet using group VIDEO MEETINGS via Skype or Google Hangout. *

Both apps are FREE … and will accommodate up to TEN PEOPLE. Even better, they're fairly easy to set up.

Follow the app's instructions. If you run into trouble try the sites' Support or Help … or reach out to an 11-year-old (after all, they're not in school).

GOOGLE HANGOUT (see photos)
1. Go to Google's home page
2. Click on the app in the top right corner.
3. Scroll down the menu till you find "Hangout."
4. Click on the icon to open it up.

SKYPE (click on links below)
1. Go directly to Skype to download the app.
2. Watch this intro video at Tech Boomers. It's not great, but it's better than others.

FACEBOOK
No video, only text—but it's one more way to hold "meetings." If your club hasn't already set up a private a Facebook GROUP, consider doing so. Posted COMMENTS are seen only by members of the group.

Whatever you decide, BEST OF LUCK, dear readers. I hope you find a way to be together. Most important, STAY WELL—that goes for your families and friends, too.

Many thanks to my daughter, who's younger than I am… and smarter. This post was at her suggestion.
