    FaceBook Google Wave Areade Dare

    Facebook’s Modern Message System: Seamless, Chat History and A Social Inbox. I might have added a few words but I’m pretty sure those were the key features of Facebook’s new messaging system. Being the tech junkie that I am, I couldn’t help but feel I had seen this movie before. Don’t get me wrong Facebook’s Modern Messaging System sounds awesome, but doesn’t it sound a lot like “Google Wave.” Let me be more direct, “Is this Google Wave in disguise?”

    For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, let me explain. Google Wave was a software framework designed to merge e-mail, instant messaging, wikis and social networking. However Google suspended the development of the platform due to supposed lack of support. Now I’m not saying the Zuckerberg mafia copied General Brin and the Google armada, but then again you can’t ignore the clear cut similarities. The war of words between two earlier this week starts to make more sense.

    I just wonder if there really is a demand for “@facebook.com” e-mail addresses. That’s a question for you and Facebook to find out. Do you wanna take it to the next level?

    Disclosure: None.
