Comments on: PluggedIn: Struggling to ride Google Wave Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 By: ctown Sat, 27 Mar 2010 12:09:05 +0000 GROUP SUPPORT! That’s the key to Google Wave, and once they implement it correctly, I can see more and more people using Google Wave.

Think about Google Groups or Yahoo Groups or other forums – it is often ridiculously hard to read conversations because of all the duplication (replies include the entire thread!), and no one can reply to a post directly; all replies are after all other replies. Google Wave is already superior in all these regards, but right now there’s no way to send a wave to a pre-defined set of people (a group), and for people who are added later to the group to see those waves. Once those things are implemented, Google Wave will be perfect for Groups, and then maybe people will use it for other things as well.
