Google+ Floodgates Open

Each Google+ user now has 150 invites to dole out

Inviting friends to Google+ is a lot more straightforward now. That's welcome news to users of the Internet search leader's growing social networking service.

Each Google+ user now has 150 invites to dole out and can either invite people by email, as before, or send a link to a dedicated invite page.

Google+ may have seemed vague or awkward to you before, raising questions in your mind. How many people could you invite? Would you run out of invites? How could you get all your Facebook friends an invite so they'll jump ship?

Previously, to invite friends, you had to enter each person's email address one at a time. With the new link that can be shared with a group, such as on Twitter, Facebook, or your website, Google is moving in the right direction.

It's not quite there yet, though. While you can send out more than 150 invites, only 150 people can sign up under you with this new system. This, still, may be plenty enough for most people.
