    Thanks for such a great event!

  6. Okay. I can’t seem to figure out how to log on to Google Hangouts with my Google account. I can watch the videos though. This just confirms all the reasons I’m an apple person. 😉

    • It’s a little confusing for us, too! We found that it helps to have Google Chrome, and you need a Google Plus account. But if you missed it, the videos will be archived on our “XOXO Connects: Video Posts” page! Thanks for coming, and don’t miss all the non-Hangout stuff we’ve got going on :).
