    When will Google+ be available for all?

    Hello,

    I was wondering if anyone has the inside skinny on when Google+ will be available to everyone?

    Also, how did Google select who would get the first invites??

    Thank you if anyone knows!

    newzgirl, Welcome to the Lounge.

    It appears it is available to all. A Google Search shows many links to it.

    Actually it's not...yet. You can google it and find it, but registrations are closed even if you have a gmail account.

    btw, hi...my name's Kyle.

    Oh, I see you are correct. They say you can leave them an email and they will notify you when the field trials have ended and others get invited.

    Hello again!

    Yes, I left my email a number of weeks ago and I am anxious to try it. Maybe someone who works for Google will come along and let us know when we can expect the program to become available. A girl can wish ....

    Invitations Available

    I have a few invitations I can share with you all. Send an email to OPTVTNGKJAHD@spammotel.com (it's a temporary address that I can delete when I run out of invitations) and I will send an invite to you.

    I understand your concern but I can assure you that a spammer would not be so obvious. I have handed out two invitations to readers of this thread - perhaps the recipients will acknowledge that they were not spammed.

    I can vouch for Spammotel.

    I have an open invitation out for Google+ also, on my AskWoody web site.

    Drop by www.AskWoody.com and look for the post "Invitation to sign up for Google+".

    When you join Google+, be sure to add me to one of your Circles!

    Sorry, I have never heard of this before. After looking at the site I see it is legitimate, although I probably will not choose to use it.

    I also have invitations I can offer folks here on The Lounge. Just send me an email at justgeo1@gmail.com and put Google+ in the subject!
