Due to overwhelming response, Google had to shutdown the invites to their newly launched social project Google+. Perhaps they can take a page from Twitter and just come up with their own Fail Whale, afterall most people found out about the closure through the Twitter social network.

"We've shut down invite mechanism for the night. Insane demand. We need to do this carefully, and in a controlled way," Google's head of social Vic Gundotra announced last night at 11:45 p.m.

Interestingly, as people started to get invites and use the service, they used Twitter in many cases to communicate their opinions about it. That may not have been the exact plan at Google, but the reviews are positive in most cases.

The biggest thing everyone likes is the drag and drop ability to move your contacts into their appropriate "Circle" – friends, family, acquaintences, follow are in the start up categories, but there is a button to add additional custom groups.
