Now even the common people can G+

So – so much for being part of that exclusive club of beta-testers.  Now even the common people can use it.  Alas…  Anyway, here are the details:

Google+ is now open to anyone who wants to get in.  In a Tuesday post on the Official Google Blog, Google announced that it will launch nine new features in the next few days, including open signups.

“For the past 12 weeks we’ve been in field trial, and during that time we’ve listened and learned a great deal. We’re nowhere near done, but with the improvements we’ve made so far we’re ready to move from field trial to beta, and introduce our 100th feature: open signups. This way anyone can visit google.com/+, join the project and connect with the people they care about,” Senior Vice President of Engineering Vic Gundotra wrote for the blog post.

Google also launched Search for Google+, as well as an expansion of its Hangouts video chat feature and more.
