Even Google’s own staff don’t use it, spending their social web time on Facebook and Twitter like everybody else:

Maybe I am not with it enough to get it, but it is sad to think
That millions of people out there are totally incapable
Of truly independent thought and action. We are
Internet and network addicts and anything we are
Addicted to will end up degrading and corrupting our overall
Culture in my humble opinion.

Google+ is the new “Facebook”, and yes soon It will win the battle with Facebook.

What it was, and what they should have sold it as, was an online collaborative whiteboard. You can have multiple people in the conversation sharing links, photos, videos and it had versioning (a wave’s “history”) to navigate through the conversation in time. Currently, only a combination of Evernote, Dropbox, and good ole e-mail can replace it for my needs.

I’m waiting for it to mature as the open source “Wave in a Box” but it looks promising… at least for enterprise users.

Doesn’t collect any other personal information. Seems to have better privacy than circles. Interesting Concept.

Love the idea of combining Docs & Hangout, and I could see great use for Sparks for an agency like ours where folks are constantly sharing out Reader finds via email.
