Earlier this month Google opened up its social media experiment to Joe and Jane Public – no invitation required. But as this was being written there was still one group that cannot sign up for Google’s massive social media experiment: The millions of loyal Google Apps users. (Technically, they could still sign up for G+, just not with their Google Apps account – which makes it kind of pointless.) The reason is that G+ requires its users to have a Google Profile, and g-Apps doesn’t support profiles – yet.

When will Google+ support the most die-hard Googlers? “Soon,” the G-folks say. Just not soon enough for some.
