Few days ago, Google launched the Google Shared Spaces that is based on Google Wave technology. Google Shared Spaces allows you to easily create a custom space with a collaborative gadget and a chat box in it. You can add placemarks to a map, draw on the same white board, play Sudoku, create lists, find the best budget accommodation, brainstorm, create diagrams and answer to polls. There are approximately 50 Wave gadgets available right now across different categories, like games, productivity, planning, and polls. Users can create a new space by going to the gallery and clicking on one of the featured gadgets. Each shared space comes with a chat area for additional interaction. Also, spaces can easily be shared by just pasting the URL into a chat window, an email or a content sharing platform like Google Buzz or Twitter.
