Lots of people trying to send out Google+ invites to everyone they know. I think it's potentially incredibly counter-productive to send them to everyone at the moment. It's in the first few days of launch - let the technical people play with it and allow the technology to stabalize before unleashing on the masses. If it's going to succeed then we need to know it'll "just work" for any people potentially moving from facebook

- On the other hand, what use is a social network without your friends? People want to find out what it's all about...Jul 1, 2011
- Of course, but have 'technical' friends who can discuss sensible stuff at the start, and prevent all the inane babble of the masses for now. I don't think I've seen any post on here so far that hasn't been about Google+ system. And at the moment, that's a good thing.
Unlike us, the masses will likely get annoyed if it's not a free-for-all for signing up and hoops need to be jumped through as is currently the case.Jul 1, 2011
- I'm with Alex on this -- though I did indeed just invite my more geeky/technical/work focussed friends only rather than less techie friends & family. I did count some photography friends as geeks to (they can be obsessive, mine is bigger than yours etc)
I did though take one special interest group on -- f1. Partly as there are so many geeks there, partly due to the excitement of silverstone being a week away, and partly to provide a break for techie/google+ posts.Jul 1, 2011
- @Al I agree, although in my experience most people aren't willing to submit feedback and will just go back to what they know if there are problems ... I think Google have got so much of it right that there isn't much chance of the technocrati ballsing up the UX. To be honest the idea if a 'selected few' random invites was probably the right thing to do ...Jul 1, 2011
