Google+ Invites Forced To Shutdown

Due to overwhelming demand, Google had to shutdown the invites to their newly launched social network. "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.

“We’ve shut down invite mechanism for the night. Insane demand. We need to do this carefully, and in a controlled way,” Google’s head of social Vic Gundotra announced last night at 11:45 p.m.
