sources that don‟t drive value for the site/campaign it is

launching Helpouts, a live video-chat network of more
than 1,000 experts on subjects like technology, fitness,
DIY, music, cooking and more.
The experts – selected through a screening process –
select their own prices, and provide users with
individualised, real-time advice and assistance. Google
calls it “real help from real people in real time”.
Screen sharing is available for those who need help with
things like Photoshop and other software programs.
Helpouts facilitates interactive learning, a step up from
pre-recorded videos on Youtube.
Companies such as Rosetta Stone, Weight Watchers and
One Medical have already signed up to host Helpouts,
some even offering advice for free.

Franz Beckenbauer revealed all in an interview.
This was all built for the launch of what is known only as
the S-Circle range.
