Google Buzz Versus Google Wave

If Google Buzz sounds familiar, that could be because it’s a whole lot like Google Wave. Here's how the two services compare.

Similarly, in Wave you only ever see one copy of an active wave, making it easier to track changes to a document or conversation. But new e-mail messages pile on top of one another, and it doesn't take long before you end up with these massive conversation strings that are constantly being replicated every time you hit the reply button.

So my guess, as well as the guess of others, is that once you're comfortable with Buzz, you might be more willing to use Wave for collaborative online projects. But the trick will be to get you to buy into using Google Buzz, and that may be a tough sell if you're already used to sharing items with your existing networks on Facebook, MySpace, and Twitter.

Have you tried Google Buzz yet? What's your take?

If Google Buzz hasn't shown up in your inbox yet, PCWorld has a workaround that lets you try out Buzz right now on your desktop or smartphone.
