Hi, this is a quick update on the Google Plus situation. On Friday (7/1), I put out a notice on my blog that how those of us with access to Google Plus can invite family and friends into Plus. It was not a direct invitation but a way to e-mail stream update to people. From there, they can click on the "Learn more about Google Plus" icon and gain access that way.
As far as I know, I was able to add those of you interested in getting a Google Plus account as of early morning the next day. Luckily, I was able to invite a few dozen and was pretty happy about that.
But those that received the email after that or read their e-mails too late were shut out. And I tested it against this morning and the situation remains the same. And Google has not opened up on our pages official invitations to invite friends from within our stream page.
I will continue to reply to those of you who e-mailed me for access. When things change, I will e-mail you directly again and post a new blog post notifying you of the change. I hope to get all of you on Plus as soon as possible and hope that we remains friends after. Since this experience, I have made friends from all over the world.
I can tell you this about Plus. It is truly a remarkable experience.
