Google+ Has Already Been Blocked Before The Official Launch … At Least In China

Share And Comment

In what seems like only hours since the unveiling, Google’s new social tool, Google+ has been blocked. That’s exactly right! And yes, you would be accurate in stating that it’s invitation only and in beta. So where exactly has Google+ been blocked? China! According to confirmations from both Just Ping and the Greatfirewallofchina.org, the plus.google.com website is inaccessible in China.

If you’re getting ready to cry foul here, this is exactly what the Chinese powers that be have done with Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, and Foursquare. I guess it’s just business as usual for these guys, though one could speculate on why it came so fast with Google not officially launching it yet. Either way, it’s blocked! So what are your thoughts on this? Hit up the comments and let us know!
