Google Wave and Social Networking
As we have evolved as a computer reliant society, so have the ways we connect with one another. Due to our acceptance of computers as a means of communication, social networking websites and software designed to help us both communicate and work together have flourished in the last 10 years. Some of the most prominent players in the social networking realms are Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter (to a lesser extent.) These websites allow users to connect to one another to establish or reestablish friendships, communicate important events and information to the masses, or for other facets of communication. However, as we evolve as a computer centered society, so must the ways we communicate. With that notion in mind, Google has come up with a viable response to our ever evolving preferences in communication.
Google Wave is a communication application that is presently under development. Essentially, Google is attempting to create the ideal communication application that would begin to make all other related applications obsolete. They plan on doing this through giving users what they have grown accustomed to for their communication and socialization needs will giving them more possibilities to interact with one another in real time. Google Wave theoretically envisions the application that we all wish to have that does not suffer from the current faults which currently plague present choices for our socialization needs.
The singular concept that defines the motivation which is driving the creation of Google Wave is the ability to act in real time. Users will be able to post comments to one another’s web pages in real time, while also being able to edit comments. There will be group chat functions that will allow your friends and you to communicate with each other together, instead maintaining conversations with one person at a time. One of the most intriguing aspects of Google Wave, and is somewhat built upon the functionality of their Google Sites application, is an application that will allow your work groups to collectively work on and edit documents, web pages, and projects in a streamlined and efficient manner.
As a whole, the creation of a social networking application designed by Google makes sense. Google, as both a technological powerhouse and household name, aims to be as profitable as possible in the technology sector. One primary example of this has been Google’s partnership with the cellular phone provider T-Mobile. With the help of T-Mobile, Google has created and successfully launched two models of their popular internet phones, the Google Phone. It would appear that one of the purposes behind creating Google Wave would to meet the demand of the consumers to always be connected to their peers. Theoretically speaking, with the release of Google Wave and its inevitable implementation within the Google Phone, interpersonal communication between computer users and mobile phone users will be flawless, allowing for us as consumers to have greater socialization capabilities on the go.
Upon is forthcoming release, Google Wave will have to breach the bonds that the computing public has already formed with the likes of Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter to become viable. There is no question that Google hasn’t already considered these when attempting to become profitable in this sector, as Google Wave seems to be designed around the flaws of the big three. It would appear that with Google’s proven track record for success in computer technology, that Google Wave will be the next big thing which graces computer screens everywhere.
