Free Google Plus Account & Invite Information

Google’s New Social Networking site – Google+ or Google Plus

If you have not heard recently, Google has launched it’s latest attempt at the social networking market (you might remember Google Buzz) but at first glance, and after using for a couple of weeks and reading through many Tech reviews…. they may have got it RIGHT this time. Google Plus offers more control, flexibility, security, integration with other platforms and options than currently exist with many others (Twitter, FriendFeed) and even the powerhouse Facebook.

Here are the main features provided in Google Plus that we find the most useful:

This is designed with our RL (real life) friendships and acquaintances in mind. We do not have one large group of ‘friends’ but rather groups (or circles) of people that may co-exists within other (sub)groups such as family members, close personal friends, co-workers, business acquaintances, etc. Google Plus allows you to group members within your network in any circle that YOU create. You get to design how communications will be addressed, what type of information you wish to share and with whom. There is no limit to the number of circles that you can create and you can even create a circle with just one person. You can also place the same person within as many different circles as like. After all, it is very likely that you may have a childhood best friend that is just like (and knows) your family or a co-worker that is also a close personal friend so now you can include them in both circles. The circles you create and how they are ‘named’ is visible only to you. When someone is accepted by you, they do not know what circle you have created and placed them in and will only see any information you post ‘publish’ to this particular circle. Sharing of photos, videos and URLs are also the same. Only the information you wish to share with a particular circle will be able to ‘see’ this information and members of other circles will never have access.

Circle of friends that do not have Google Plus accounts:
A member you have placed in a Circle does not have Google Plus account BUT they can still receive a message from you. You may write something that you want to share with a Circle of Friends some of your ‘friends’ do not have a Google Plus account (yet). No problem, simply compose your message and select the option to send via email. Now all of your Circle members can keep up with what is going on even if they don’t have an account.

Think in equivalent terms of meeting up with a members or a specific circle for lunch. You can select to “Start a Hangout” and members can join you for a video conference using their webcam. You control the interactions on your own terms by signify that you are Available and allowing others to Join you. If your hangout involves more than one person, the app automatically features the person “doing the talking” while other are displayed lower and smaller in the window view. You can use this feature with up to 10 different users and you can also share YouTube videos together.

Is a way to start and collect ideas and information about topics with members. This options allows users to select and identify things of interest or to find out more information. As an example, you could start a Spark about Free Internet Applications. Users are then presented with the latest news, articles, blogs, postings, etc containing links about free internet apps. Now users can collect, sort and share any of this information from their profile or to a select group of friends or within Circles.

No more taking pictures or videos at the birthday party and then going home and plugging in your device to your computer and uploading. Now you can auto sync your Android devices (not just yet for Apple) which include your phones and tablets so that when you take a picture or video, they are automatically uploaded and waiting for you to share. You can still edit and select which photos you would like to share, to certain individuals or to full Circles or you can still decide not to share with anyone.

Security features:
Google Plus makes it easy for you to delete your account… not just suspend the name and the feeds, postings, photos, etc but to delete the information.
Members within any Circle, friends, followers, etc must receive permission from you BEFORE they can TAG you in a photo or a video.
You can select to tag someone in a post and share only with that person and no one else can see the tag, not even your mutual friends (members of the same circle).
No SPAM links within your feeds and postings because there is no “Wall” to allow such activity to be posted on your profile.
Select how you can be notified and what type of information you want to receive. Select to receive notifications when you are mentioned in a post, someone comments on one of your posts, when someone wants to start a conversation, etc. But you can also limit how you allow others (even specific members) to be able to send information to you.

Review of Basic App Features:

  • Create Circles of friends and networks – control and manage conversations
  • Send email to Circle contacts without requiring accounts
  • Create unlimited number of Circles and even a circle of one
  • Conduct online meetings & discussions with up to 10 users
  • Share videos, links and discussions online with members
  • Create, share and discuss different topics of interest with Circle members or select individuals
  • Control notifications and contact information
  • Auto picture & video uploads

Summary Review and Grade

  • Free Registration Required – Invite or use Google Account (see below)
  • No Downloads
  • No Installation Required
  • Works on All Web-browsers
  • No Technical Experience Necessary
  • Works Cross-platform – on all computer platforms – (Linux, Macs, Windows)
  • Control over many types of groups and communications to include

You can get a Free Account a couple of ways:

First Option:
Through your Google account – no invitation necessary. (anyone can also sign up for a Free Google account which will gain you access to Gmail, Google Docs, Sites, Calendar, GTalk, Google Voice and many more….but you do NOT need to use any of these and create an account to get your Free Google Plus account)

If you already have a Gmail account that is part of Google Apps – sorry but your Google apps Gmail account will not allow you to participate in Google Plus just yet. This is expected to be released later this year but currently Google Apps does not allow for the creation of a public profile which is required.  If you use Yahoo or Windows Live (Hotmail) and signed up for a Google account using one of these other services, you are also able to begin using Google Plus (just make sure you have created a publicly visible Google profile).

Considering the above applies to you – all you need to do is to go to and Sign in with your account. Again, make sure to create a publicly visible profile

Second Option:

Receive an invitation from someone that already has a Google Plus account (hint – we have an account) or Request an Invite at

    You could certainly see your skills in the work you write. The sector hopes for even more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to say how they believe.
