Local television station uses Google+ hangouts live on air before page is shut down

The afternoon pick-u-up is here again to help you beat your lunch coma.

Even though Google’s social media platform launched less than a month ago on an invite-only basis, one TV anchor in Missouri hosted a Google Hangout while live on the air.

KOMU-TV anchor Sarah Hill had been using Google’s video chat service to interact with viewers, and the chats were bringing in people from around the world, Mashable reports. But Google, which is not ready to launch business profiles on Google Plus, deactivated  KOMU-TV’s account. There are reports that Google may allow businesses to create profiles within two months.
