Here is the easiest way to invite or add friends / people to Google Plus:

  1. Add all of the email addresses that you would like to invite to your Gmail or Yahoo email account.
  2. If you want to invite your Facebook friends, import your Facebook contacts into Yahoo Mail.
  3. Import Contacts from Yahoo

  4. Connect the account you’re importing contacts from to your Google+ account
  5. Go to Google Plus and click on the “Circles” link.
  6. Google Plus Circles

  7. Create a circle to add your friends into. I created one called “Facebook Friends”.
  8. Drag all of the people you want to be added to Google Plus into that group (you can select as many as you’d like at once).
  9. Google Plus Circle

  10. Go the the Google Plus “Home” section.
  11. Google Plus Home

  12. Start writing a new post, or status update and @mention the friends you want to invite. They should get an email invitation within the next 30 minutes! Enjoy!
  13. Google Plus Status Update

If you haven’t been invited yet, post a comment below (make sure you leave a valid email) and I will invite you when Google+ begins accepting new registrations.

Once you get the invite click on “View or Comment on Anson Alexander’s Post”:

View or Comment on Post

On the next screen click on “Join Google+”:

Join Google Plus

If you have been invited and are seeing an “over capacity” message don’t worry, check out my post “Google Plus Temporarily Exceeded Capacity“.

If you provide a valid email address in order to comment, you do not have to post your email again the body of the comment.

See everyone on Google+!

  6. Morten Myrstad says:

    Thx! Waiting for the queue sorting it out and me in.

  7. Markku says:

    Fasebook sucks!

  8. Laurel Papworth says:

    This post skips a lot of steps. E.g. how do I get the Facebook/Yahoo list into Google +? Does it take all of Yahoo or just the people from a List I created on Yahoo?

    None of the import options I click on work in Google + so I think that's why this post seems hard to follow.

  9. Kenan Sulayman says:

    Hey, hello.

  20. dave says:

    nice insight into the plus service.

  21. Andrea says:


    Perhaps you can assist me here, I was a beta for the Wave project, and perhaps this is why I do see the "Google Plus" indicator on articles, and when I click on it the number goes up.Yet I can not for the life of me find an invite.

    As a usual beta tester for Google projects it is possible I have in fact been accepted?
    I am curious as to what would happen if you sent me an invite.
    Could you please do so ?


  22. Meliss says:

    So I followed your instructions in this post and for some reason my friends' are not receiving any emails with the posts in them. Has this happened to others?

  23. Maria says:

    I'm trying to invite my friends as well and this isn't working for me. Sucks being on Google Plus with only one friend on there! I tried adding their email to a circle, and then shared a link with that circle … nothing. And now I tried tagging the contact in the update like you recommended. So far no luck :(

  24. Sandro says:

    Google Plus makes privacy settings clear and obvious, which facebook has yet to do. The idea of circles is simply genius. Would love an invite to check it out.

  25. ShubhamZ says:

    Thanks!!! Got my invite, it's over capacity right now so cant sign in, but at least I can very soon. Thanks Again!

  26. Roy says:

    Thank you for the invitation! I Just received it by e-mail

  27. Ru says:

    Hopefully Google works out the kinks soon, and reopens invitations. Very exciting, I hope they put a dent into Facebook, though I doubt it is really a "Facebook-killer".

    If you have one to spare, I'd sure appreciate an invitation myself. Thank you in advance.

  28. kounet says:

    Thank you for google ++

  29. julie says:

    good tutorial

  30. Amber zhang says:

    Thank you for inviting me to +…now as you said, after a couple of hours, I logged in successfully…
    But there is another problem, when wrote a new post on the home page, it says "There is a problem saving your post. Please try again. Could you tell me how I can figure out this problem? or all I need to do is to wait?

    Thanks again.

  31. HCC says:

    Thanks for 2 well written articles – this one and "Google Plus Temporarily Exceeded Capacity" – Thanks in advance if you make it through all the comments and manage to send an invite. Look forward to seeing everyone on Google+.

  32. arleeno says:

    I enjoy your articles about Google+. They are very informative. Please send me an invitation to Google+. Thank you!

  33. Arnoldo says:

    Thanks for the excellent insights on Google+ — I am anxious to try it out as an alternative to The FBook. I would truly appreciate an invite. Thanks.

  34. Aaron says:

    Interesting, but I guess you have to already know somebody who is invited. Kind of strange.

  35. Adam Osborn says:

    Thanks man you are awesome! Can't wait to see you on Google+!!!

  36. iKE ALLEN says:

    Amazing resource Sir.

  37. Mao says:

    I don't know why you take your time to guide people into this new social network but thanks.

  38. Romadhon says:

    Just set up for my Google plus account. Complicated feature but really awesome, especially Hangouts feature :D thanks

  39. ghadi says:

    thaaaaaaaanx !

  40. dj says:

    I've had a google+ account for a little while now and I don't know if it's going to be as huge as some people are predicting. I don't think it has enough to make people switch from Facebook and twitter. And the fact that it's still not openly available isn't helping. But I guess only time will tell.

  47. Oliver Gordon says:

    Thanks so much!

  48. Ken says:

    I followed your instructions for moving Facebook friends to Yahoo contacts. That worked fine.

    Item 5 says, "Drag all of the people you want to be added to Google Plus into that group…"

    I have G+ opened in one window of Chrome and Yahoo contacts in a second window. I can drag the Facebook contacts within the Yahoo page, but not onto the second window to place in G+ circle.

    Help please.

  49. Anson Alexander says:


    You need to connect your Yahoo account to your Google+ account which you can configure in your Google+ settings here:

  50. David @ Buy Books says:

    I'm early days in Google+ having gotten use to Facebook where I can make an explicit "friend request". How do I invite Google+ users (not my Facebook friends) to add me to their circle?
