Google Releases Minor Update to Google Plus App for Android

Google Releases Minor Update to Google Plus App for Android | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
Google has released a minor update to the Google Plus app. “Minor,” however, is a relative term, since the update resolves one major source of annoyance that has plagued the earlier version of the app: login issues for users having multiple GMail accounts. The bug fix, it seems, is the only “big” thing about the recent update, which also puts a new profile icon on the menu screen and some minor refinements to the user interface.

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.

Tons of you guys have sent me additional feedback and I wanted to post a summary of what you guys are saying. I'm trying to practice active listening to make sure I got all of your suggestions.

Developer API for Google+: It's coming

Developer API for Google+: It's coming | The Google+ Project | Scoop.it
Google's new social network, Google+, has only been public for two days, and developers are already interested in access to the service so they can roll out add-ons and improvements.
Fortunately for them, and ultimately for Google+ users, developer access is coming. It's simply a matter of time. As Vic Gundotra, senior vice president of social for Google, told me at a Web 2.0 Summit cocktail party tonight, "I'm a developer guy at the core. It is inconceivable I would build something without a platform."

Official Google Blog: Introducing the Google+ project: Real-life sharing, rethought for the web

Among the most basic of human needs is the need to connect with others. With a smile, a laugh, a whisper or a cheer, we connect with others every single day.

Today, the connections between people increasingly happen online. Yet the subtlety and substance of real-world interactions are lost in the rigidness of our online tools.

In this basic, human way, online sharing is awkward. Even broken. And we aim to fix it.

We’d like to bring the nuance and richness of real-life sharing to software. We want to make Google better by including you, your relationships, and your interests. And so begins the Google+ project:
