The software works or it doesn't. This limited membership pool is ridiculous. People will be talking about Google+ for a few days (maybe a couple weeks). If Google does not open up membership to the general public in that time, it will die. I remember when Gmail invites were the next big thing. I didn't even notice when Gmail opened up to the general public (took many months), all I know is that Hotmail and Yahoo! Mail still have more accounts than Gmail. If Google wants to compete with Facebook, it needs to be there right away. Unlike email, social sites like this are living breathing organisms. You need those members to keep the website alive. You can TRY to be elitist, "we're only letting so many people in", to try to build up buzz, but when people can (and already do) use Facebook instead, why are they going to hang around trying to get into Google's exclusive club?
Face it, people use MySpace OR Facebook OR any of the other alternatives (especially regional ones), but unless you are a business or celebrity, how many people use more than one? How many millions of dead myspace pages are there? Those people didn't disappear, they just moved on. Google needs people to move on from Facebook for Google+ to be a success. Those people won't even try if Google won't let them.
I get an email from an acquaintance now and then inviting me to join Facebook, and you know what, if I cared, I could click that link and actually join. You try to join Google+ today, and you'll be told to come back later. First rule of sales is never let the customer walk out the door without buying something, and Google won't even unlock the doors to let customers in.
As the battle goes on between the two giants FACEBOOK & GOOGLE, a new social networking & media site has taken the industry by surprise ONLYMEWORLD! ONLYMEWORLD allows it's members to place their own google adsense and/or any ads to their profiles, allowing it's members to make monies! Most people who have been concerned over FACEBOOK's continued disregard of it's users privacy rights are switching because unlike any other social network, ONLYMEWORLD does not require a real name, and email address...NO MORE SPAM, NO MORE HASSLES, NO MORE IDENTITY THEFT! This little startup is starting to see some serious traffic from around the world, according to alexa ONLYMEWORLD is experiencing TRIPLE DIGIT GROWTH!

Wow, are you really that social that you needed to be in the G+ social network asap? Personally, I wouldn't mind waiting a couple months til it's offically released. As long as you have a Gmail account already, I'm sure no one can take your ID when G+ goes public.
Patient my friend.
I think its better for them to keep it 'invite only' for a while so they can test it out and iron out the bugs. Given that millions of people would sign up within a couple of day of launch, its probably the safest bet. They also probably retain the right to delete users/data in the beta period. If they just launched it and something went wrong, it could ruin the entire site.
