How to Invite New People to Join Google+

Google+ initially launched as an invite-only beta environment, which meant that your friends and contacts could use Google+ only if you invited them. Because invitations are no longer required, Google+ no longer limits the number of invitations it gives users.

You can see the Invite Friends button displayed in the right-hand column of your stream view (shown in the following figure). Simply click that link to invite someone to Google+.

You can invite friends one of two ways: invite them by e-mail or share a link that they can click. Here’s how you invite friends to Google+ by e-mail:

  1. In the right column of your stream view, click Invite Friends.

    A new pop-up box appears, prompting you to invite your friends.

  2. Click Add More People to Invite.

    This link accesses a text box where you type e-mail addresses of friends you want to invite. Add as many e-mail addresses as you like. As you type each e-mail address, a drop-down box appears with their e-mail address. Select it.

  3. Click the input box and type the next e-mail address.

  4. When you’re done, click Send Email.

    The people you invited will receive an invitation to join Google+ via an e-mail from you.

Here’s how you invite new people to Google+ with just a link:

  1. In the right column of your stream view, click Invite Friends.

    When you click this button, a new pop-up box appears, prompting you to invite your friends.

  2. Copy and paste the link in the pop-up box.

    At the bottom of the pop-up box, you’ll be given a link. Just copy that link and paste it into a Facebook status update, Twitter post, or e-mail to share it with your friends.
