Just got my invite, unfortunately its still complaining about it being over capacity, its like the days when gmail was still in private beta all over again

When I get through I will keep you lot informed then will invite ANYONE who requests an invite

as far as I can see its a very nice well designed thing that has absolutely no chance of success because everyone has, like it or not, facebook.

as a facebook refuser and deleter, google+ is a breath of fresh air, everything just works and you know who has your information and what it's being used for.

Plus, the delete account button is easy to find

I dunno I have spoken to many of my friends who use either skype (does well at video chat), windows live messenger (Does well in normal chat) or facebook (does well at profiles and status updates) and many use it just because there is nothing that competes with it and once they heard about google+ and the features they were happy to switch, I think this is the only hyped up alternative that does all the things that the 3 I stated does best at and the fact its all in one package makes life easier for people

One suggestion I have though is they clearly need to integrate their current services into google+ because the fact they are using a seperate chatting, picture and video service when they already have perfectly good ones is ridiculous

From all accounts, Skype will be used for video chat in facebook in the next couple of weeks.

if thats true then that sounds like a vital point they don't have much to gain by not doing.

The annoying thing about it is that you have to be atleast 18 to use it.

I never remember putting my age into my google account and it still comes up with the 'You have to be a certain age to use this feature'

Has anyone managed to register yet, I click the invite link and its still complaining about over capacity

another query when you click the invite link does it take you to the google + home page or takes you somewhere else cause when I click mine, it takes me to where it says "Google+ is in limited Field Trial" (https://plus.google....t/?sw=1&type=st), well I have already got an invite from a current google+ user so shouldnt it say something else or lead to a different page

facebook is for losers! get a girlfriend! :)


I like your comment SwissTourist, for this reason: last week my gf of 6 years or so threw an absolute torrent of abuse at me because I had not accepted her firned request! I couldn't see the point. We've lived together for 4 1/2 years so why does she need to be on my carefully screened list of just over 30 friends? She doesn't. End of. It's all settled now though.

Use this new method

What we should do now is create our own google docs spreadsheet then people can fill it in, what do you guys think?

https://spreadsheets...t...Xc&hl=en_GB

this way its all in one place and others can help then

Another quick update

the google+ invite system is up but is restricting how many people join so try every now and again, as always keep the invite requests coming

Just an update, I have now got into google+, if you want an invite then please go to my google+ page @ http://gplus.to/richardarkless click send email and in the subject put "google+ invite" (so will get put into a folder and wont flood inbox) and in the message bit put your email address

I will try and send out an email to everyone but I cant guarantee that it will work straight away because of demands

Also if you get "Already invited? We've temporarily exceeded our capacity. Please try again soon." after invite that is normal because the demand is too high so try every now and again

Email sent, thank you! :blink:

Edit: Invite received...cheers! Just need to wait for them to open the doors again!
