So this post is an opinion poll so to speak. Since I wrote the post about how to join Google+, all hell has broke loose.
Now, I want to know how are you handling Google+ requests from people. Ever since that post went live, I have been inundated with emails asking me to send people an invite. I understand people want to get in on Google+ on the ground floor and see what it’s all about; but geez!
I don’t even know half of these people. Inviting unknown people is kind of like defeating the whole privacy issue that Google+ prides itself on, right?
I don’t want to make this a long drawn out post, but I need some opinions from all of you other Google+ users. Some people have literally emailed me four or five times asking for an invite. I, myself have not even had the proper time to fully inspect the social network.
Believe me, I would love to invite the world, but it’s not possible. And here is another question; are we not inviting everyone for exclusivity purposes? Are we trying to be above the crowd and keep the goods to ourselves?
I really don’t know the answers to these questions. What I do know is that I am uncomfortable inviting people I am not familiar with; however, doesn’t this also negate networking strategies? Shouldn’t our goal be to network and engage people on every level?
I know, a million questions, which is why I am writing this post to ask your opinions. See there, I need your help. We all need help at some point or another. And boy I need it more than most. )
Okay, please if you can find a few minutes to answer some of these questions for me, I would truly appreciate it. Sharing this post will also help us get more answers to pool from as well.
I don’t want to intentionally exclude anyone from joining Google+, but I think there has to be limits. What should these limits be?
Thanks a million for your help.
