Google is Watching!
Google and Facebook are two of the greatest inventions that have been found on the twentieth first century.

Google Wave Logo
I have been blessed to receive a one generous invitation from Jake Ruston to use Google Wave. Luckily, a Google Wave account allows me to retain 8 free invitations to anyone interested on sharing and testing the service. However, I thought of writing a post about Google Wave explaining the core aim of this new communication revolution to share it publicly but I found a well written article at Mashable, The social media guide which will save so much time so the summary is quoted as below:
