Google has turned its back on Wave, the communication Web app that debuted with much fanfare in 2009. Developers seemed to like what they saw when Google first rolled it out, but since then, adoption has been sub-par, according to the company. Parts of Wave’s system, however, will likely be worked into future Google products, including some meant to target Facebook.
Google has other projects in the social area, including the rumored Google Games and Google Me sevices. It’s not yet clear whether the Internet search giant has other social projects underway.
These all seem to be aimed at tackling Facebook, which Google is now apparently targeting. Google has invested in Zynga, which will form the cornerstone of Google Games.
Why do you think Google Wave failed and what does Google need to do to challenge Facebook in Social Networking area? Or Facebook has gone too far to be chased?
