I think this is a great idea...

I am not very active in the group but this gives me an opportunity to be
part of the project and start contributing in any fashion I can.. I think
the community IRC support is great but probably we can use the google+
hangouts for that too as we can also share our desktops or documents.. it
makes support more social and personal, and also I think we can engage new
users much better. Using social networks will help market the great world
of open source and linux to a larger audience.

Just my 2 cents on the subject.
