Google has doubled the number of people in the Google+ field trial, but business users will have to wait a bit longer and Google’s business customers, specifically users of Google Apps have to wait a bit longer to try Google+. Google engineers are working to remedy the situation but there are significant hurdles to overcom and Google+ is still working through various privacy issues…………..
Good news for Google Apps users, your pleas to get access to Google+, the search titan’s latest foray into social networking, have been heard. Google‘s president of enterprise, Dave Girouard, said that the company is working to make Google+ available to Google Apps users. Google Apps is Google‘s customizable version of the company’s various productivity services including Gmail, Calendar, Talk, Docs and Groups. “Sorry for the delay,” Girouard wrote. “We need to do it right!” No estimate was given for how long it will be until that happens, nor was any insight offered on how Google plans to handle sharing in what could be a company’s private network with public circles. Google is expanding the size of the new social-networking service to let more users in the door. Earlier this week the company opened up invites to existing users to effectively double the population by adding outsiders. The service has drawn many comparisons to Facebook and even Twitter in offering users a place to share and view content in a stream with others with whom they’ve made connections. Google has built it up with tie-ins to a number of its other services and technologies like Gmail, Picasa, YouTube and Google Talk.
