2. Only regular Gmail accounts are supported and you can’t use your Google apps account to setup a Google Plus profile. if you ask anyone to send you an invitation to your Google Apps email address, you will never receive it in the first place.

3. If you have a Yahoo or Windows Live Hotmail account and you have used it to sign up for a Google account, you are good to go. But make sure you have created your Google profile and it’s visibility is public.
