How to send Google+ invitations without an actual invitation

Google’s latest effort in being social seems to be catching on among very early adopters as reviews and impressions of the service has been largely positive.

Unfortunately for those who are waiting to be invited, Google suspended invitations yesterday afternoon citing insane demand. Well, this has always been Google’s way of creating, maintaining, and prolonging hype after all, because if anyone knows anything about scaling, it’s Google.

Regardless, there’s a way to be invited to Google+ without actually being invited and that’s through email.

When you share a post on Google+ you have to set the recipient before posting. You can select specific circles of contacts or share to email addresses as the intended recipient. By sharing your post via email, the recipients will be able to see what you posted on Google+ on their email and if they follow the link that says, “Learn more about Google+”, they’ll get taken to Google+ to activate their profiles.

  1. Its not just scaling. They have to do it in controlled way. If you write software, you’ll perhaps understand what testing is like. A software developer always knows the limits of the code he writes. So when they mean controlled, they probably do mean to control it which seems very obvious me. Pre-release is very popular way to test software anyway.
