Yes, but better!

#9 Posted by Deathshroud (403 posts) -

How do you get into it anyway ?? only through personal invite or would I find something in my google account ?

#10 Posted by MonetaryDread (2371 posts) -

That looks like a social network I could get behind. Maybe I might actually use them now.

#11 Posted by jNerd (2183 posts) -

open invites today to anyone who has a gmail account.

INVITE ME!

#13 Posted by GeneralZod37 (295 posts) -

invites are closed to me, but add me to circles regardless. gplus.to/zod

#14 Posted by Yanngc33 (4551 posts) -

So how do you get invites?

#15 Posted by RE_Player1 (7946 posts) -

Can't wait until this goes public. Way better than Facebook from what I've seen.

#16 Posted by dungbootle (2501 posts) -

I'd like an invite.

#17 Posted by SSully (4656 posts) -

I would also like an invite, I've been trying to get in since the middle of June. Sadly I was working yesterday when they were letting basically anyone with a google account get in.

#18 Posted by DillonWerner (1603 posts) -

I want an invite.

#19 Posted by Creamypies (4163 posts) -

Somebody invite me. I wouldn't mind checking it out.

#20 Posted by SSully (4656 posts) -

If I am not mistaken each google plus member currently gets 500 invites(according to someone i follow on twitter). Even if it was less then that we could all hook each other up with invites easily. If I end up scoring an invite ill make sure to PM people for emails, because the way you invite people is by sending them one through gmail i guess.

#21 Posted by RE_Player1 (7946 posts) -

@SSully: For sure. PM me if you get an invite, I'll do the same if I get one.

I signed up i think. Will see what happens. I'm not adding you though. I don't like friends.

Cool.

#23 Posted by imsh_pl (3498 posts) -

I'd love an invite. If you would be so kind to invite me, PM me so we can exchange emails adresses.

#24 Posted by benjaebe (2870 posts) -

This turned into some kind of invite thread, which is fine by me....so if anyone has spares I'd love to check it out.

#25 Posted by RE_Player1 (7946 posts) -

I'd love an invite too, pm me if you wish to give me one and we'll exchange e-mails. Anybody know if you get invitations you can give out if you get invited by someone?

#26 Posted by ka_tet19 (99 posts) -

If someone does have excess invites I would totally be up for checking it out as well!

#27 Posted by Apparatus_Unearth (3514 posts) -

daveeitle@gmail.com. Invite me?

#28 Posted by Bumpton (482 posts) -

According to their site, it looks like they've halted signups for the time being even if you have an invite. Bum city.

I so hope Google+ destroys Facebook, makes it wish it was MySpace. Facebook only got so big because it was really the only site of its kind whos layout didn't make your eyes bleed (i.e. MySpace) Now that there's legit competition I think a lot of people will tell Facebook and their lax privacy attitude where to go.

To the OP, sure I'll add ya. :)

Yes, but it's actually not terrible.
 
Anyway, I thought that they closed down new users until further notice (Even people with invites)? People must really be frustrated with Facebook if there was such a rush to Google +...
#31 Posted by MyaSharona (75 posts) -

Invites are closed again. They opened up for a short time last night and  I bet they will do so again.  
I'm  gplus.to/sharonp   But s o far it's no big stink.

#32 Posted by vegoku (107 posts) -

I would love to scope it out, any invites would be much appreciative!

for those of you that have access to it, have you tried the hangout feature a lot or do you use it basically like Facebook?

#33 Posted by MyaSharona (75 posts) -
@vegoku: In my very limited experience, so far there are not enough people on it to really put it to the test. Also it's still quite buggy. I'm sure it will get better but I haven't seen anything different than facebook. ( Haven't tried hangouts). With a larger user  base maybe that will be the leg-up on the fb+skype combo? I hear good things about the android app, but there isn't one for iphone or nokia or blackberry currently. 
#34 Posted by Aegon (6651 posts) -

How do you get an invite? Is it just a code?

#35 Posted by amomjc (978 posts) -

Man I would love to try this out, been wanting to sink my teeth into it for a while.

#36 Edited by Gilsham (302 posts) -

added the people here to a GiantBomb circle gplus.to/gilsham

so far loving circles and sparks letting you have an uncluttered feed to read =D

#37 Posted by Lumley (998 posts) -

I'd love to be able to get in early, PM me if you're feeling super generous then I'll PM other people if I get in.

#38 Posted by MyaSharona (75 posts) -
@gilsham: also added. You know I keep seeing people say how great the circles are and how clean the feed is, but you can have the same thing on facebook. The only difference I see is that google+ forces you to do this where as facebook merely gives you the option. So far , to me, it feels like Google+ is to Mac as Facebook is to PC. 
#39 Posted by RE_Player1 (7946 posts) -
@MyaSharona Now I know I'll love it.

So a classier version of Facebook you say? Great! (And I am a PC user)

#41 Posted by Mikewrestler5 (638 posts) -

Even if you have an invite, at least as of right now, you still can't get in.

#42 Edited by JoeJaen (29 posts) -

Hey guys add me!

#47 Posted by SwiprNOSEwipng (26 posts) -

If anyone has an invite I would love to check it out.

#48 Posted by Guided_By_Tigers (8020 posts) -

I don't want to be friends with you.

#49 Posted by Zero_ (2012 posts) -

Apparently the G+ invites are up again. I put my love (and faith) in the GB community: nguyen.michael0@gmail.com anyone? :D
