Some people, like yours truly, already love Google Pus (G+). There are also a lot of people who desperately want to be on G+ but haven't managed it yet. Some people have suggested that Google has been creating G+ hype with an artificial shortage of G+ invites, that Google could let the world in if they wanted too. I disagree. After all, would Google have left G+ go briefly haywire over the weekend if they really had the resources to keep everyone happy? I don't think so!
On Saturday, Google started spamming G+ e-mail inboxes with a flood of email notifications. What happened? According to Vic Gundotra, Google Senior VP of Social, which includes overseeing G+:
Perhaps the more interesting question though isn't how big G+ is now, it's "How big will G+ get?" On July 6th, Facebook claimed to have 750-million users. I wonder, I really do, if by this time next year G+ will have overtaken Facebook. I'm quite serious. G+ is that good.
