Update: Google Plus is open for everyone!
Google+ (Google Plus) is the latest venture from the behemoth Google which is quickly becoming the hottest social networking on the internet. Using the strategy of invite-only registration, Google has amassed thousands and thousands of users under its belt, out of which, only a handful of users were able to sign-up for an account.
Because of the “insane demand” for Google Plus invites, Google folks were forced to temporarily shut down any new registration. So, if you have received a Google Plus invite, or if you are already on Google Plus, then consider yourself to be lucky.
For souls who haven’t been able to pick up an invite, don’t worry — there is hope, only if your age doesn’t come under Google’s age limit policy.
Accept Google+ Invite With Picasa
– Link Picasa to Your Google Profile:
If you are not able to accept the already-sent invite, go to your Google Profile (not the Google+ profile; you don’t have one!) and link Picasa to it. Now you will be accept the invite and create an account. Pretty easy; thanks Reddit!
– I don’t have an invite; how do I get one?
Ask. That’s the only way to get an invite. Ask anyone on Twitter, Facebook, or ask here and I will send you an invite. Despite the fact that invitation mechanism has been disabled, there is a workaround that lets Google+ users to send an invite by sharing story. Here is how this works:
I’ll add a story on Google Plus and share it to your Gmail ID. You’ll have an invite dropped in your inbox waiting for you to “Learn more about Google+.” Click on the email link to sign-up.
I have tried this method, and I can assure you this works, at least for now!
Oh, I like Google+, and I have to admit the fact that Google has finally delivered a successful product.
