Stutter Social is a volunteer-run organization that connects PWS through Google+ Hangouts. Every time a Stutter Social Hangout begins, the Hangout link is posted on the Stutter Social Facebook page, Google+ page, and various stuttering community Facebook pages.
For those who don’t know what a Hangout is, it’s a group video conference call where you can see and talk to up to 10 people at a time. You’ll need a Google account (email) in order to participate in a Hangout. You must also be logged into your email on the device you’re trying to connect with.
Participating in a Stutter Social Hangout is a fun, free, and safe way to connect with other PWS. Discussion often revolves around stuttering-related issues, but sometimes we just chat about our day or a good movie. We are a very welcoming and friendly bunch so don’t be shy and come join us whenever is convenient for you.
Stutter Social Hangouts are run by official Stutter Social hosts. They are all people who stutter, and they will do their best to make each Hangout worthwhile and enjoyable. To find hangout days and times or to read about our hosts, please visit www.stuttersocial.com.
