A better way to invite friends to Google+ is coming soon. The only bad thing is that this apparently means that it won’t be opening wide open (no invite required) any time soon…
Hey Everyone, We’ve heard that you want to invite your friends, but sometimes you don’t know their email addresses… or sometimes its not easy to find it.
To address this, we’ll be rolling out a new feature over the next few days that lets you invite others simply by using a link.
When you click the “invite friends” button on the right-hand side of the page, you’ll find a new link that you can IM to friends or post on the web.
Since we’re still in field trial, we’re limiting sign-ups from these links to 150 per person for now. We hope you’ll like this easy way to bring your friends onto Google+. Thanks and keep the feedback coming!
