Every comment made comes to me in the form of an email notification and every time I go into email I see the Buzz icon. It’s very difficult to “avoid.”
This “in your face” dimension will generate a lot of activity quickly. Will it sustain over time? In thinking about it on the PC vs. mobile I think what we have are essentially two products built with the same infrastructure:
- Google Wave Lite on the PC
- Latitude/LBS/Yelp/FourSquare potentially on mobile
The use cases for the two are going to be very different. And the mobile reviews feature (content creation/collection) for upload into Place Pages is yet another scenario.
