Google Shuts Down Google+ Invites, Cites "Insane Demand"
"We've shut down invite mechanism for the night. Insane demand. We need to do this carefully, and in a controlled way," Google's Vic Gundotra said. "Thank you all for your interest! For any who wish to leave, please remember you can always exit and take your data with you by using Google Takeout. It's your data, your relationships, your identity."
And so it begins. Google+ went live on Tuesday, in beta form. With what Google's trying to accomplish here, it's a promising sign that it's had to turn off invites, even if it's frustrating for users who'd rather try it out for themselves rather than read about it.
Did you receive a Google+ invite? If so, what do you think about it so far?
