Shortly after the launch, we offered invites to readers from our Mashable News account. The post had nearly 2,000 comments from readers who wanted to get on the new platform — more entries for a Mashable comment contest than we’d ever seen.Now I know that contests are held for a range of items but uuuhhh, you're holding a contest, for an invite?? Doesn't anyone else strike that as weird? We have it, you want it, come and get it? Yeah, perhaps it is me and the whole google+ hype is passing me by. What so special about this new social media that everyone wants in? Is it the new place to be? Do all the popular kids hang out there which immediately propels us all to migrate...again? I just don't think it's the kind of thing to hold a contest over!
