Google+ Adapts To Your Feedback & Suggestions

Google+ has been getting a lot of buzz since its launch a few weeks back, but while some may think the Google team is sitting back and relaxing, quite the opposite is actually happening behind the scenes.

According to Geek.com, the senior vice president of google Social, Vic Gundotra claims that the platform has received a lot of criticisms since launch and that the team is working hard to address those criticisms and give users exactly what they are looking for in a social experience.

Google Plus Runs Out Of Space And Spams Users

In a quick succession, several Google Plus users were bombarded with multiple email notifications spamming their inbox due to a coding error after which the service that kept track of Google Plus notification system ran out of disk space.

Since its launching in a limited field test two weeks ago, Google Plus has captured “millions” of users. The social party began with mostly tech journalists and tech insiders, before Google had to shut down invites. Google briefly re-opened the social network to the public last Thursday.

Google Closes Google+ Invite Loophole

For a few brief hours Wednesday evening, Google allowed current users of its newly unveiled social network, Google+, to send out invites to whomever their hearts desired. That option was swiftly shut down, however, after an sudden onslaught of people came rushing to the site in hoards.

“We’ve shut down invite mechanism for the night. Insane demand,” announced Google’s head of social media Vic Gundotra on his Plus profile. “We need to do this carefully, and in a controlled way.”
