Google+ invites halted, more popular than Google thought!

Google+ invites halted for now, due to "insane demand"

| Social Networking News | Posted: Jun 30, 2011 7:27 am

If you have gotten an invite into Google+, you'll know just how cool it is so far. I've been using it most of the day and I must say I'm very, very impressed. I can definitely see the potential for not only Google here, but for users in general. It feels more secure, very stable and very well made, many features that other social networking sites don't have like video chat. Hangouts is surprisingly cool, with Cameron and I currently video chatting (he may or may not be naked, join our Hangout to see) and it "just works".

It took all of five seconds to get into the room, flawless is an understatement. You're able to view YouTube videos together, smilies in chat are pretty cool as they transform from the text to an actual smilie, and tagging also works if you use it like Facebook, @Anthony, etc.

 

Once you've been invited, feel free to add the TweakTown staff to your circles and we hope to bring you some TweakTown themed Google+ action soon! How does a "Hangout" and drinks with TweakTown staff and readers sound? Leave your thoughts, email me or +1 me! Come +meet us now! :)
