    I have used this same workaround for other things. At least Facebook allows one company the ability to grab my contacts.

    If I can get a Google+ account in the first place - apparently they're still very much only inviting certain people.

    "Google+ is in limited Field Trial
    Right now, we're testing with a small number of people, but it won't be long before the Google+ project is ready for everyone. Leave us your email address and we'll make sure you're the first to know when we're ready to invite more people."

        1) My invites, if I get them, will be going to people I know.

        2) I don't have my own invite, much less invites to give out.

    wait, does it get them invited or just in your circles? I am already on google+ and I added contacts from gmail into circles but that didnt mean they got an invite, as far as I can tell.

      @NYGalinPA If they are not on G+, it will give you a green box popup 'Invite these 5 people to Google Plus?' then you click it.
