It worked. If I get better internet signal at work I will try and exploit a few more in.

Re: RIP Facebook...introducing Google+

So I'm in...and totally confused. I imported my contacts from Yahoo (apparently this is the best way to import Facebook contacts) and only a few showed up. I dragged them to a circle....does that send an invite?

Re: RIP Facebook...introducing Google+

I'll be interested to see how this pans out. I don't have a facebook account and don't plan on ever having one. But I do use a lot of Google services already and this seems better-thought-out and more useful than Wave or Buzz, from the write-ups that I've seen. If they can make it feel like a natural extension of all the Google stuff you already do, I think it could at least put a small dent in facebook usage for some. I guess we'll see.

From what I understand....

Dragging them to a circle does not send an invite, but if that person creates a Google+ account they will automatically be in that circle when their Google+ account is activated.

To send an invite I have created a circle for invite requests, add that person's email manually into the circle, and then share a post to that circle. When you share the post there is a checkbox that says something like "include an e-mail to a non-Google member of this circle" That's how I sent shadowhawk2020 an invite.

As far as I can tell, I don't have any. I don't see a listing for invites anywhere on my home screen or in settings.

Yeah they are opening and closing them, demand is overwhelming beyond what Google expected.

I don't see any invites on mine either. Unless it's that 'Circles' shit.

Re: RIP Facebook...introducing Google+

Will this be like LiveJournal, which fizzled almost immediately once it was no longer invite-only and "exclusive"?

Possibly, it might also pull a Facebook and fail once it's no longer exclusive to universities.

Forgot about Facebook. That sure was a fiasco. Long live MySpace!

Possibly, but it's easy to forget to go to LiveJournal (or MySpace, or Wave, etc.) and have it gradually fade out from your memory.

Being that you will receive notifications on any Google service I think will let it stick around in people's minds long enough to gain ground.

Wait, you're saying Facebook failed once it wasn't exclusive to Universities? I'm sure google would mind that kind of "fail".

True for people like me who use a lot of Google services. But it seems a lot of people's ONLY web experience any more is via Facebook.

Timber, Matto, just tried the exploit for both of you.

That will be my last attempt until I get home from work tonight. I have a lot of stuff to do today.
