Google is telling everyone that their new project, Google +, is the new way to do social. We’re going to have to take their word for it since the project is being rolled out in a field trial by invitation only in a technique called rolling thunder according to Wired.
In fine Internet fashion, however, that hasn’t stopped everyone from trying to compare it to Facebook, make fun of its name and make bold predictions about how it will or will not work.
Rather than get involved in this silliness how about we just give you the series of videos that Google produced for their blog post to explain this new social thing. Make of it what you will.
So there you go. Read about each element at the Google blog or gawk at the myriad articles trying to predict the future of Google+. There will be plenty of time for analysis and speculation when it actually has some traction.
Right now, though, it’s just a Wave of speculation. Oooops, I bet Google hopes it isn’t that. Maybe all the buzz about Google+ will die down. Oooops again. Google and Buzz didn’t get along in the past.
How about we all get in a circle and wait until something actually happens.
