Google Plus invite badly wanted.

Postby leke » Tue Jul 12, 2011 6:00 pm

:( People are playing with it already and I'm not. I'm so sad...I mean, I feel so sad.

If anyone has a spare invite, I'll be your bestest friend :lol:

Not everyone has it. Nor does everyone wants one. :roll:

Let's face it, it's all hype, hype and more hype and frankly, I can do very well without it... :evil: And so can you, if you stop and give it a good think... :P

On the other hand, it's a pretty stupid idea to set up a social networking service and expect people to use it when their friends aren't allowed on.

Why would you want an invite to spend more time being slightly lost and confused? ;-)

So you didn't get an invite then, nelz?

From the reviews I've read this limited testing phase has been restricted to journos, bloggers and some heavy Google users and if you don't have any friends among that lot, you get to have Google employees as friends to experiment on... er with.

I'm sure they'll roll it out to the unwashed masses soon enough.

I didn't, but then neither did most of the people I know, so it wouldn't have been much use to me anyway.

Even people with invites can't always get on because they have "temporarily exceeded our capacity" for a while now. There seems to be some poor planning here.

Go on then. Best send one to 1sf (troll), so he can stalk Rhakios on G+ too :)

Thanks for the offer, towy. I'm happy to wait until they've ironed out most of the bugs, perhaps they can iron out any fish while they're at it.
I wonder if there'll be separate + apps for Android devices?
