My email is example.user@gmail.com. So when I look at my friend's laptop, it shows that the invited email is exampleuser@gmail.com (without the period/dot in the username).

What can I do to solve this? Why didn't Google Plus accept my email through my friend's invitation?

    With Google+ now open to all, it seems there is no use for this question. – ale Feb 25 '12 at 16:30

Well, there's two parts to this - gmail dosen't actually recognise the period as part of the username, so in essence its the same e mail

the second is the invite mechanism is down due to overwheming demand

You just have to wait.

  • i'd note, the invite mechanism now works sporadically but dosen't send an email. – Journeyman Geek Jul 9 '11 at 0:34


  1. Use danaladine@gmail.com, because gmail treats e-mails with or without dots the same.

  2. Wait for an invitation on your other mail, or till the site becomes public.

  3. See if Google+ allows you to change your e-mail address after signing up.
