To mark the event, Google modified its official homepage with a doodle featuring a finger-painted blue arrow extending to the top left corner of the screen and pointing to the +You tab, inviting the public to jump aboard the search giant’s upcoming social network Google+.
Not long after Google+ switched from invite-only field test to public beta, Google homepage (www.google.com) visitors started to see the arrow, with an attached message below the search box that reads, “Thanks for waiting. Google+ is open to all! Join now.”
Visitors who still have to register for a Google account or did not sign in will be prompted by the arrow to do so by pointing to +You.
Google+ entered its beta phase earlier this week, thereby lifting the invitation-only membership for those who want to join the social network.
