*** UPDATE We finally got our Account up and running*** Click here to get the invite from our author:
Wow, Google has definitely gotten the respond that they were looking for. They have effectively turned every single human being into 15 year old girls trying to figure out when Justin Bieber is going to come out on the balcony.
Google has had a history of doing this “invite” only deal for a long while, they did the same thing with Gmail, and with Google Wave… Gmail was great, Wave… not so much. So let’s hope that all this hype is going to be worth it now that they are going into the social realm.
Google+ was launched earlier last month as a limited “field trial,” while Google ironed out some kinks and fixed their platform… aka… looked for security holes, flaws, glitches, etc. Access to the project is very limited, each user is given out 15 invitations a piece, they can each bring 15 other people on board and so on. Only problem is that even after you receive the “G”lamorous invitation, you still can’t sign up for the project. “We’ve temporarily exceeded our capacity. Please try again soon.” 2 days and counting, and still nothing. So the chances of you getting an invite in the next week or so is a little slim to none.
But I have some news for you, If you’re dying to begin trying out Google+ but you can’t find someone with a spare invitation, you can sign up to get a Google+ account here. It’s an entry form so you will not receive the invitation immediately, but Google will send you one first, before anyone else.
According to Google, “We’re still ironing out a few kinks in Google+, so it’s not quite ready for everyone to climb aboard,” they said, “But, if you want, we’ll let you know the minute the doors are open for real. Cool? Cool.” Cool Google, that’s cool enough.
