Today I did this:
Two points to take from this, as the person setting up and doing the interviewing.??
- We naturally in conversation say "Hmm", "Yeah", etc when we're in normal conversation. I do anyway. In a Hangout though it might mean that your interruption flicks your face up to the main image for a second, which is a bit odd and of-putting. Either don't make those noises, or in the thumbnails click the interviewee so they remain in focus even when you do this.??
- If you go into a screenshare and have asked your interviewee to do this, find a way to subtly prompt them to come back away from this, back to the video image of them – talking to a web page is a bit odd after a while.??
