For past few months there was a sort of exclusivity having a Google+ account, it was interesting finding out who was not on board trying it and throwing them an invite in pity! However, that exclusivity has now gone and with the 100th update to the service, Google have thrown open the doors to Google+ and no doubt are waiting for the rush of users to flood in! Maybe!
According to the senior vice president of engineering at Google, Vic Gundotra, he worte on the Google Blog:
The Google+ project has been in field trial for just under 90 days, and in that time we’ve made 91 different improvements (many of which are posted here). Google+ is still in its infancy, of course, but we’re more excited than ever to bring the nuance and richness of real-life sharing to software. Today we’re releasing nine more features that get us that much closer.
After going through the final updates to Google+ he finally said;
For the past 12 weeks we’ve been in field trial, and during that time we’ve listened and learned a great deal. We’re nowhere near done, but with the improvements we’ve made so far we’re ready to move from field trial to beta, and introduce our 100th feature: open signups. This way anyone can visit google.com/+, join the project and connect with the people they care about.
