Google Wave

Christina Ewing

The social media I have been using throughout the semester is Google Wave. I think it can make communicating with group members or co-workers much easier when working on a project or developing a plan. ”People can communicate and work together with richly formatted text, photos, videos, maps, and more. Any participant can reply anywhere in the message, edit the content and add participants at any point in the process. Then playback lets anyone rewind the wave to see who said what and when. With live transmission as you type, participants on a wave can have faster conversations, see edits and interact with extensions in real-time.”

Create Conversation
I created a conversation using Google Wave by adding contacts as well as sending out invites to friends so they can join Google Wave. So far I have three contacts and I am actively trying to get more. Adding followers on wave is much harder than Facebook or Twitter. This is because it is fairly new and a lot of people are still not quite sure how to use it.

Progress Report
I have enjoyed researching and using Google Wave. However it would be more useful for me if I had more contacts to communicate with. I have reached out on Twitter and Facebook to find more followers for my Wave account.

What’s next?
My future with Google Wave will hopefully provide me with an easier way to communicate with others. Include more followers and contacts, as well as to provide a way to communicate with future co-workers or group members.
