Here’s how you can get an invite to Google+ right now

Surely by now you’ve sent out loads of invites to Google+. If that’s the case, then you’ve also probably heard that some of your invited people are being stonewalled by Google, saying that the system is overloaded. Well, we still have a way that it will work, at least until Google decides to catch it:

Oh, first off, make sure you’re using Chrome!

  1. Create a circle called invite.
  2. Add people who have Gmail accounts to it.
  3. Create a post and address it to only the invite circle.
