Would you join the google+ network if you were invited?

or do you spend too much time with social networking as it is?

I just accepted an invite this morning and I must say its pretty lonely here. I am wondering if this will ever catch on.

    Jul 11 2011: I would join, at least to check it out.
    About the loneliness there: my understanding is that Google keeps the community small on purpose for the time being to catch all the bugs. The people there now are basically the beta testers, but if it is true what I read, Google+ seems to get thumbs up so far.

        Jul 11 2011: Hi Tobias, funny.....all the hype about the exclusivity of Google+, but anybody visiting the link plus.google.com can simply sign up.
        Looks like a good marketing move though. Scarcity always increases interest.
        Btw, just checked it out. It's kind of quiet indeed, but that shouldn't come as a surprise. It's only a few days old and in any case, it will take some time to move people from facebook to Google+;
        What I did see on first glance is that Google+ seems to be much less convoluted than Facebook.
