Google+ Invites Have Been Stopped for Now

As many of you noticed, we pulled the Google+ sign-up post from last night.  For those that missed our message on Twitter, we did so because the invite system was taken down by Google after an overwhelming number of new members joined.  They want to keep this bad boy stable and continue to roll it out gradually to everyone.

There are potentially a couple of work-arounds to get you in the program, but we’re hearing that they have started to patch most of them.  If you do know some though, feel free to post those up in the comments below.

What we will ask, is that DO NOT POST YOUR GMAIL ACCOUNTS IN THE COMMENTS.

  • Time Ads

    I have G+ accounts – click here…http://mobile.time-ads.net/do-you-want-a-google-invite/

  • Tarsis Brito

    plese invite me tarsis.brito@gmail:disqus .com

    This method takes advantage of a hidden feature in the +Circles service, which allows invites to be sent to a list of email addresses of a user’s choosing. Pretty nifty, isn’t it? Here’s how to do it:

       1. Create a new circle named “invite” and add email addresses to it. Keep in mind that the people you’re adding must have GMail accounts.
       2. Create a post and assign it to the invite circle only. Be sure not to make it public to everyone, just members of the “invite” circle.

    If you try this and it works an invite would be appreciated kind sir. JLWeckler@gmail.com

    I got in and invited most of my ~550 Facebook friends, I just imported their contact info to yahoo then imported that to Google+ then put them all in 2 groups and posted something visible to both groups and that sent out ~550 invite emails!

    (2 groups because I was getting a size limit error with one) 
    Most people I talked to got them but it took some people 5+ hours to get them, some still haven’t…

    Had an invite last night, and a minute ago was finally able to create an account.  Everyone who has one pending  may one to zerg this before they close again.  FYI, no option to invite others at the moment.

  • Hmule03

    I would even paypal someone for an invite lol: hmule03@gmail.com

    • Austin

      They locked it. The people who I got in before were pure luck and great timing.

  • digsoreos

    What a way to build up suspense, tension, and interest. :) Reminds me of when Gmail was by invitation only.

  • Austin

    It now says that I will be able to invite people by email soon.

  • Kfath1978

    where do you get the mobile app at?  i dont see it in the market.

    • Austin

      Search for Google+

    • digsoreos

      Search for: pub:”Google Inc.”

  • Austin

    Can someone help me invite people it is getting crazy?

  • Nick

    Two of my friends were just able to sign up via the loophole method that was not working earlier.

  • digsoreos

    Anyone with two Google accounts on their phone notice this: I downloaded the Google+ app and when I launch it, it asks for me to select an account to use it with. The only thing is that just one of my Google accounts is listed, and it’s not the one that I use as my main account (which is tied to the Android Market and used to activate my DX).

    • Austin

      Yah I had to deleted all my Gmail’s except my main one for it to work.

      • digsoreos

        Cool. I did the same and that worked (except I still didn’t get in). I tried uninstalling the app and then reinstalling it but that didn’t work.

        • Austin

          I sent you an invite

          • digsoreos

            Thanks. Got it. Clicked to view your comment. Then clicked the JOIN GOOGLE+ button and got to the page that says: “Already invited? We’ve temporarily exceeded our capacity. Please try again soon.” Ugh.

            Thanks for trying. I’ll keep checking in. If I get in, I’ll try inviting others.

    @kellex well. No one read your last sentence…

    • Austin

      That’s because invites have been restored.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=5227147 Chris Wagner

        Austin do you mind sending me one i sent you an email

      • Anonymous

        So. That means you can ignore what kellex says and post your gmail? I didn’t
        know that. :/

        • Austin

          I asked them to email me not to post so it’s not my fault.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=5227147 Chris Wagner

        TY Austin its currently working and I got in!

  • Anonymous

    Why do people want the invite? No one else you know will have one! You will have NO FRIENDS.

  • Austin

    Enjoy it before they close it again!

  • Austin

    Is anyone getting in who has emailed me? If not I just sent a activity thing so if you click view comment it should ask you to join.

    • Jermana

    Hopefully they don’t take too long, otherwise the buzz will fade and they’ll miss their opportunity.  No fun logging in to seeing 1 person.
