Google+ Invites More People, Enterprises In Store For Some Special Features

Google+ Invites More People, Enterprises In Store For Some Special Features | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
Google is seeing some early demand for its new social networking project -- and is hinting that enterprises may be in store for some special features.

On the enterprise front, Greg Sterling at Sterling Market Intelligence sees some promise for Google+. Sterling expects some companies to adopt the tool for the group chat feature, which he said could enable remote groups within an organization to have a meeting in a simple and ad-hoc way.

"You can set up group chat for up to 10 people and you have the ability to segment all these groups, which will also be a potentially useful enterprise tool," Sterling said. "Certainly when you couple that with all the Google apps it's a nice package that companies can use. Large companies may have their issues with consumer products but I think there will be a lot of people that use this because with the video chat feature the value is immediate and obvious."

Haven’t gotten into Google+ yet? It appears anyone can sign-up now at the Google+ home page.

Hitting the page now brings up a sign-up box, rather than the usual “Keep Me Posted” message that I believe had been there.

Google+ gets a C- for capacity

Google+ gets a C- for capacity | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
Google has launched its Google+ social networking web site but it won't permit new users to sign up.
It's available via the Android market or online but don't bother wasting your time trying to sign up because you can't sign up even if you've had an invitation.

People are getting annoying at being told they're not allowed to sign up, though. We personally feel left out and our feelings are a bit hurt, like the kid at school who gets picked last for the football team

How to invite your pals to Google+ CNET

How to invite your pals to Google+ CNET | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
A lot of people want to get in on the beta test of Google+, Google's new social-networking service. If you're one of the folks in the in-crowd, there's something you can do to get your friends on board right now.
And it's not as obvious as clicking an "invite friends" button to invite them directly. Google opened up that possibility last night but then shut it down after a fleeting moment because of what Google's Vic Gundotra called "insane demand."
Instead, you have to use a built-in e-mail option for Google+ that happens to have a viral marketing component. Here are the steps.

Spam messages promise Google+ invites, deliver drug ads

Spam messages promise Google+ invites, deliver drug ads | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
It's the hottest invitation in technology right now -- an e-mail telling you how to "learn more about Google+." If you get one, though, be careful about clicking on it. It may be spam.

Security vendor Sophos says that pharmaceutical spammers have recently started to cash in on the popularity of Google's Facebook alternative by pushing out fake invitations to the Google+ social service.

Google Plus invite like a “diamond,” proves Facebook and Skype hate growing?

Google Plus invite like a “diamond,” proves Facebook and Skype hate growing? | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
According to a recent post by Google’s Senior Vice-President of Social Vic Gundotra, the company is currently facing an "insane demand" of customers wanting to have their very own Google Plus account.
Another evidence that Google Plus is gaining momentum is the eBay entry selling a Google+ invite. According to TechCrunch, Google+ invites are being sold for up to $75. That’s almost a $100 for a service that looks like Facebook, LOL.

Google Plus Temporarily Exceeded Capacity | AnsonAlex.com | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
If you’ve been invited to Google Plus and are receiving this message, don’t worry. Google is only allowing a certain amount of people to join at a time right now.
Once the queue is filled for a particular block of time, they put new sign ups on hold even if you’ve been invited. This is only a temporary hold and within the next couple hours you should be able to use your invite and start using Google +!

Stop Asking For A Google+ Invite - Until Google+ is widely accessible, it’ll be terrible. - Wired

Stop Asking For A Google+ Invite - Until Google+ is widely accessible, it’ll be terrible. - Wired | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
By limiting the number of people who can join Google+, Google is hugely limiting what kind of experience those people will have.

I can’t entirely figure out why Google’s opted for such a limited release. Surely one of the largest tech companies in the world can’t be short of server capacity? (disclaimer: I am not a network engineer). If it’s just for testing and early feedback, and it’s not ready yet, then why the all-singing, all-dancing assault of videos explaining what it does?

I’d have thought Google would have learnt the lessons of the Wave fiasco. That doesn’t appear to have been the case. Google+ might the best social service that the world has ever seen, but until it’s widely accessible, it’ll be terrible.

It was a fun couple of hours while it lasted, but just a short while after opening up Google+ invitations, Google has closed them down again.

The option on the right-hand sidebar has disappeared, and when you add non-members to Circles you’re no longer given the option to invite them as well.

Users have been clamoring for invitations to Google+, which Google launched as a limited "field trial," noting "you may find some rough edges." Access to the project is currently by invitation only, and a limited number of users were given 15 invitations apiece to bring others on board.

If you're eager to begin trying out Google+ and can't find someone with a spare invitation, you can sign up to request a Google+ account.

Google+: Good Stuff if You Can Get it

Google+: Good Stuff if You Can Get it | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
Google+ is awesome. Or -- at least -- I'm assuming it is. Although I've had an invitation to join Google's social networking experiment for several days, every time I attempt to check out the service I'm told "We've temporarily exceeded our capacity. Please try again soon."

A somewhat closed Beta will certainly generate buzz, but it can also put off a few potential users. Not everyone will be willing to click the same link several times a day in hopes that they can soon be a part of Google's inner circle.

Apparently I'm not alone in my failed attempts to join Google+.

Dear Google, where the hell is my Google+ invitation? | ZDNet | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
By a show of hands, how many of you received a Google+ invitation? Well, I didn’t receive one nor did anyone I know. And, I know a lot of high-profile writers, authors and various pseudo-celebrities. But, none have one. No, not one. To snub someone like myself, who is such a huge Google fan, is almost too appalling to discuss in a public forum. But, I’ll try.

I should have received one of these highly valued, golden ticket invitations because, after all, I’m a writer, a book author, a podcaster and a columnist. I’m almost famous, dammit.

Google+ Invites Forced To Shutdown - Impressions shared through Twitter | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
As people started to get invites and use the service, they used Twitter in many cases to communicate their opinions about it. That may not have been the exact plan at Google, but the reviews are positive in most cases.

The biggest thing everyone likes is the drag and drop ability to move your contacts into their appropriate "Circle" – friends, family, acquaintences, follow are in the start up categories, but there is a button to add additional custom groups.

Google+ invites halted due to 'insane demand'

Google+ invites halted due to 'insane demand' | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
Google+ invites halted social network rivaling Facebook: Google+ users were quietly given the ability to invite friends into the new social network on Wednesday night, but that option lasted only a few hours due to overwhelming demand.

Google didn't formally announce that it was opening up invites on Wednesday; instead, a small red envelope with Google's "G+" logo and the words "invite people to join Google+" popped up, and it seems it didn't take long before users found it and started bringing people in.

Vic Gundotra, overseeing Google´s social networking efforts, didn't say when invites might return, but it is Google's style to go with invites before fully opening new products to the public, as has been the practice with the hugely popular Gmail service and the search giant's recently launched Google Music Beta.
