Everyone’s been begging for a Google Plus invite, and I just figured out how to give them out. I’ve confirmed it works twice now, and will try it out for the first 10 commenters to this post that include their gmail address (I can scrub it afterwards).
This is assuming either you are already on Google Plus and want to give out invites, or you know someone on Google Plus and need to give them instructions:
Go to Circles and click on “Add a New Person”. Type in the email (should be a gmail or Google account email) of the person who wants a Google Plus account, and then click “Add ‘<email>’ by email.” If it doesn’t auto fill the name it will give you a text field, type in their name, and then add them to an existing Circle.
Go to your Stream and type in a quick message like “Inviting you to G+” and then clear out any default Circles and click on “Add circles or people to share with…” and type in the email address. It should find it pretty quickly and add it as a Blue rectangle. Then click “Share” (don’t worry it just goes to them).
If you want an invite, I’ll do this same process with the first 10 commenters that include a Google account email or gmail address! Report in the comments if it worked or not for you!
