Google Plus invitations: How to invite friends to Google+

If you are trying to figure out how to invite your friends to Google+, read this article. In this Google Plus tutorial, I will explain how to invite your friends to Google+

Google+ was launched few days ago and has been creating lot of enthusiasm on netizens. Google+ was open for public registration for a short time and the lucky ones managed to get in quickly. During the trial period, Google want only limited number of people to join the network and give the feedback.

Today, 5 July 2011, Google+ is open to all. If you have a Google account, you can simply sign in to the Google+ network and you do not need any invitation to join. However, a social network is almost useless for you if you do not have all of your friends using the same network. Primary purpose of any social network is to share your thoughts with your friends and also get to know what your friends are doing!

Even though Google+ network is open to all, many of your friends may not have joined yet. In order to get the best out of the Google+, you may want to invite all your friends, colleagues and relatives to join the network and be part of your circles.

How to invite your friends to join Google+ network?

Inviting friends to join Google+ is bit tricky. I am not sure why Google made this not very straight forward. But don't worry, here is how you can do it.

1. Login to the Google+ network

2. Start a new stream by typing a meaningful message. If you are using this message to invite your friends, it makes sense to use a relevant text, something like this:

Dear friends, please join the Google+ network and add me to your circles.

3. There is a textbox below which says "Add circles or people to share with...". Simply type the email id of the people you want to share this message.

4. Click the "Share" button. Your message will be sent to the email ids you specified. The good thing is, this message will be visible only to those people whom you invites (unless you added your Circles also to share with).

All the recipients of your message will receive an email. They can clicks on the links to view the message in Google+ network. They will be prompted to join the Google+ network.

Invite and add friends to your circles

There is another way to invite your friends and buddies to Google+: Invite and add them to your Circles!

Here is how you can do it:

1. In the top navigation, click on the "Circles".

Google + Circles

2. Click on the "Add New Person" which is shown inside a rectangle in the left area. It will also show a list of suggestions for you. If your friend is not in the suggested list, click on the "Add new person" link.

3. When you click on the link, you will be prompted to search for people by name of email. In case of your contacts, Google will show the name and email address. For all others, it will show the name. You can choose a person to add to your network and choose a Circle to make him part of. (It is strange that after you choose a person, it will expect you to enter the name and click on "Save". But until you click on Save, it will not tell you it is waiting for you to type the name!)

Dil mein basaya hai aapne…

Tarsi hain ye nigahen deedar ko aapke,
ye dil to dhadakta hai sirf pyar mein aapke,
hum agar jeete hain to sirf sahare dosti ke aapke,
hum har pal ye kehte hain ki hum to sirf nacheej se dost hai aapke,
varna hamara to kya wajud tha jo apne dil mein basaya hai aapne……….
