Google+ is another social network just like Twitter and Facebook. The main different is that, Google+ originated from Google while the rest are not. What else are with Google? Blogger, Youtube, Chrome, Picasa, G-talk, Gmail and many more. You would be able to sign in once and like all of those mentioned. Best of all, you can also import your Facebook friends to your Google+ so that you will still be able to keep in touch with your Facebook friends.
There are no reasons not to sign up for your Google+ account except that it is temporarily not available due to the numbers had already reached the limit of their trial test. Just like Gmail, they were only available on invitation basis only before. However, if you are really keen to get your Google+ account now, IT Security Column will be able to provide you an invitation pass to your Google+ account in 4 simple steps.
- Subscribe to IT Security Column by Email using this link.
- Wait for the confirmation email and then confirm your subscription by following the steps in the email.
- Post a comment in this blog. Any message will do but do include your email address before commenting. If possible, do not post your email address into the comment to avoid spambots. Your email privacy will be protected by including into the comment form.
- Wait for the invitation. Once I verify your email, I will send the invitation immediately.
Two issues here that I would like to highlight. One is that it is preferred to use your Gmail account rather than any other as I am not too sure whether it will work with others. Secondly, I am not too sure as well how many invitation Google will limit me and hence I will stop and make an announcement once I can’t send any invitation out. Let’s get connected with Google+ now.
