For the past few weeks, much of the chatter on Twitter among my blogging friends has been about Google Wave. They’ve been announcing that they have invitations, they been discussing discussions held on Google Wave. In general, there appears to be quite a bit of excitement about it, so much so in fact that I went ahead and requested one of those open invites. So, what exactly is Google Wave? I honestly have no idea.
Others seem to have adapted to it just fine, so maybe it’s me. Maybe no one wants to include me in their Wave. I’m perfectly fine with that, if that is the case. I just do not like understanding the latest new communication technology. I do consider myself pretty tech-savvy, so my frustration is due solely because I can’t figure out this Wave thing. Then I have to ask, if I am having so many problems understanding it, and I feel fairly adept at all forms of online communication, what are others experiencing? Do you like it? Do you not? Is it worth the time and effort to get familiar with it?
Feel free to weigh in here and give me your thoughts? Ditch it now? Keep at it and eventually I will understand how fabulous Google Wave is? Is anyone else as frustrated at me about this program? Let me know what you think!
That's a bit how I feel about it, Hope. They already have Google Documents, which allows you to share documents around the world anyway. All this feature allows is IMing at the same time? I have an account, but I still haven't used it.
I just checked it out…I don't see it replacing any of my current networking sites. But I can see how it may be a helpful tool for work situations or even class topic discussions. But really, who has time to be online for real-time discussions anymore? I personally like the posting discussions. You can read/comment at your leisure. Makes more sense to me. But of course Google wants to be the latest and greatest in terms of social networking. Not sold yet.
At least I'm not the only one!! We'll be clueless together!
LOL…count me in with the clueless as to Google Wave.
