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.

It's going to be tough to make it successful, though. They have to convince everyone to either a) give up Facebook, or b) maintain their Facebook status and also add the new one.

If it is built like it seems it is, it should be easy to integrate it into a normal Google experience, so rather than going to a separate service, it simply socializes the entire google experience for the user.

If they get that +1 button out there in a hard way, it will make the service very relevant. if I can share with people that are not necessarily members of the service (like, an article is e-mailed to them if they do not have a g+ account, and replies post to my wall) then I can see it slip streaming into use with little problem.
