When I first started using Google+ two nights ago it was a little bit of a ghost town. Â With the exception of my friends who work at Google and a few members of the Silicon Valley elite, I could not find anyone else to friend. Â Last night Google turned on invites which turned the ghost town into a little bit more engaging community. Â The challenge is to find people you are already friends with on other social networks and add them to your Google+ circle. Â Thank goodness for Yahoo (I can’t believe I just said that).
Over a year ago, Yahoo enabled importing contacts from Facebook into Yahoo Mail, and with Google+ you can import your Yahoo contacts and find your friends on Google+. Â The steps to enable this are to log into Yahoo Mail, assuming you have an account. Â

I could not believe how Google+ invites were flying around last night it was insane. Â Google has turned them off for now.
