Google+ experiences some growing pains

Since its debut in late June, Google+ has captured much of the tech world’s online conversation.

Much of the chatter is positive, with tech bloggers cheering Google’s new social network as a cleaner and more robust alternative to Facebook. But there have been some bumps on the road.

Over the weekend, Google admitted to inadvertently “spamming” some Google+ users with notification e-mails — the messages the company sends out if another user adds you to their “circles” of contacts on the site or comments on one of your posts.

Instead of sending those notes out only once, as intended, Google+ sent them over and over again.

From the company –
“For about 80 minutes we ran out of disk space on the service that keeps track of notifications. Hence our system continued to try sending notifications. Over, and over again. Yikes,” he wrote. “We didn’t expect to hit these high thresholds so quickly, but we should have.”
