Ashton Kutcher Joins Google +
Can’t wait to see where this goes...
A day after I received my Google+ invite and set up my Circles, I saw the following fly by the ever-increasing stream of information....
Apparently, Ashton Kutcher got his personal invite early this morning, and made an appearance or two to figure things out.
One of the things any social-based tool needs to grow and succeed is someone (or many someones) to draw the larger crowds in. We all know what Kutcher did for still-emerging Twitter when he duked it out with CNN for the first million followings.
Oh, we don’t all hang around and fawn over what one celebrity says (well, most of us don’t,) but Kutcher has the potential to immediately lure thousands if not tens of thousands more into Google’s new social offering.
After they find out what all of the fuss is about, most will set up their own presences in this new landscape. Expect those lured in to begin calling in their friends, too.
This is how things get started.
I hear people are already auctioning off Google+ invites on eBay. Seriously. If you want an invite, just leave your Gmail address after this post in the comments, and it’s yours for the taking. Just be sure to say hello and throw me in a Circle, okay?
