Pretty cool

I noticed all the new features that appeared, but I hadn't played with anything yet.

Looks and sounds cool. However Google Wave also sounds sweet. Turned out to be a flop.

all of my buddies and i are currently messing around with it. It shows far more promise than the other google social networking products that were developed and have since perished.

Definitely pre-alpha right now however. No real integration with any established google products other than picasa (ex no youtube integration). Hopefully it can be successful because i already like the privacy it allows you to have over FB and the interface is quite a bit cleaner.

Overall however, to steal some comments from my friends currently using it... it's going to need integration into FB to be successful.

There is a workaround to import your fb friends, when I'm on a computer other than my phone I will post it... I haven't tried it yet myself, but its via yahoo. They are working on connecting to fb directly.

It also seems that once.you are in you can add whomever you want. Not sure how that works yet either... Just downloaded the app like 10 minutes ago. Cant wait to play around with it.

Thanks Allie.
