Special Note: Watch the video further down this post. As a marketer, it is important to keep tabs on what movers and shakers are doing, so you can position yourself to succeed. That is the wonder of being a solopreneur or a small business, you have agility not typically found in larger organizations. One of the top movers and shakers in the online world is Google. They have done so much to make it easier to find information, and their technologies have been very successful to create wealth and success for many. Today I watched a video that confirmed some of my suspicions when it comes to social networking, and I’d like to share it with you.
Not going to say much here, just sit back and watch what they are working on. In an interesting move they chose to share a “developers edition” of Google Wave. The introductions are nice, but checkout the technology demo which starts around 7 minutes.
Some notes I started…
11:00 Wave email instant messaging type conversations demo
12:23 Adding a new person to an existing email thread (playback)
14:35 Private replies in a group conversation
15:23 How attachments work in Wave.
16:38 Example photos of a group trip that all can contribute to
19:01 Blogging site example.
You can find out more about Google Wave at the Google blog.
