We’re on Google+: You can now follow Android and Me on your favorite social network

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the past 48 hours, you already know Google has announced a new social network called Google+. Within just a few hours of unveiling this “Facebook-killer,” the initial reaction from most people ranges from “This is good” to “I’m deleting my Facebook account right now.”

Regardless of the popularity Google+ reaches, you can rest assured Android and Me will be there bringing you the latest Android news. That’s why I’m happy to announce you can now follow the official Android and Me Google+ account by going here. You can also keep up with following members of the Android and Me team:

Taylor Wimberly
Angie Strickland
Justin Shapcott
Anthony Domanico
Sean Riley
Nick Gray
Edgar Cervantes
Alberto Vildosola
Jessica Blanchard

So, what are you waiting for? Stop by and say hello. If you don’t have a Google+ account yet, we’ll be giving out invites to the first 20 people to request one in the comments. You might not want to put your email down there for the world to see, so make sure you use your Gmail account to comment and we’ll see it behind the scenes. Also, keep in mind that Google has closed invitations for now, and we’ll invite you as soon they open it up again. Lastly, keep this between us, as we’d like to invite loyal Android and Me readers. Not some guy who found out we’re giving them out on Twitter. That’s about it. Ready, set, GO.

UPDATE: That was fast. Thanks for playing guys, we’ll invite you as soon as Google will let us again. For those of you who didn’t make it, keep an eye out for another giveaway right after we invite the people that won today.

Alberto is a college student living somewhere between Miami, Sarasota and the World Wide Web. Although a former iPhone owner, Alberto is now a proud Android enthusiast. You can follow Alberto on Twitter and Google+ for his thoughts unworthy of an article.

  • http://Website drone3

    Hey Crew, if this workaround is working can you sneak the rest of us through the backdoor- thanks !

    1) Add the person’s email to one of your circles

    2) Share something with that circle, making sure you’ve checked the option to share via email to the person without Google+

    3) That person receives an email with whatever you shared, and a big orange button prompting them to learn more about Google+

    4) If they click it they will be prompted to join!

    • http://Website What’s His Face

    Clearly people don’t know how to read very thoroughly; I’m pretty sure they said the first 20 commenters. Either that or we’ve got quite a few highly optimistic individuals up in here.

    And, what is with this post’s title?

    “You can now follow Android and Me on your favorite social network”

    So, we can follow you now on Facebook, or Twitter?

    Surely you couldn’t be implying that Google+ is people’s favorite social network when 99% of us haven’t even been able to access it, let alone use it and decide whether or not it’s our favorite or not.

  • http://Website Don

    Great stuff ! You guys always keep me in the know…

  • http://Website Jason

    Additionally, Google is intentionally limiting access to this new functionality partially with hopes of generating an air of exclusivity, in hopes of creating increased buzz and demand for the new functionality. As a result, I particularly don’t want anything to do with it right now, simply for the fact that I refuse to be psychologically manipulated by large corporations to believe I need something that I don’t.

  • http://Website PAul

    lol. AndroidPolice.com tried to do the same thing, offer invites yesterday to anybody who commented. Within minutes they had hundreds of requests, they had to shutdown comments and they made a form to request one instead. It’s an insane amount of demand. But, just in case, [email protected] if possible.
