Google Well, here we have another attempt. After the failure of the overly complicated Google Wave (remember that? It was supposed to change the world and all that), Google is undertaking another attempt at social networking. It's called Google+. Update: Forget the crap I wrote here, this article is seven pages on insider information on Google+. Surprised by the beautiful interface? It's been designed by Andy Hertzfeld. The Andy Hertzfeld.

Same was with Gmail for me back then, but later I had to reconsider. ;)

Got my invite today. Seems to be heading the right direction, kind of fb+twitter with syndicated web content and all Google services integrated on top of a smarter privacy model.

Don't know about Wave, but Buzz seemed rather like just another separate Google app, while this one fully integrates with the whole user profile and adds social features to everything.

As soon as every Gmail user gets a free invite, it will grow rapidly. I wouldn't expect many problems filling friend circles, as Google has plenty of data collected to suggest more than just random people (like Facebook does).
