Google wave is a great tool for communication and collaboration. But unfortunately, new users couldn’t find enough friends or contacts to test and enjoy all the wave features. For this purpose, Google has introduced Public waves where everyone can participate and share his/her experiences.
Public Google waves are like open chat rooms where everyone can talk, share files and experiment wave features with anonymous users. Therefore, the first thing you must do, as advised by lifehacker is to dip yourself in public waves and learn its features. To find public waves, all you need to do is put “with: public” in search box.
One common problem with public waves is its speedy nature. Since, people all over the world share their thoughts, the wave displays them in real time making a complete mess. It becomes difficult to track your own dialog. For this reason, we will learn to make our own public wave, which can be used by embedded and used anywhere and its easy to share your own wave with everyone.
