As the 3 month long field trial was finally over and the site was made available for public, Mountain View embedded a huge, blue arrow pointing to the company’s new effort into the world of social media.

The arrow-sign was accompanied by a message that appeared every time the user would hover the mouse over the blue arrow. The message read; “You're invited to join Google+".
