Thank you for the updates Shirli. And I think the biggest request we all have is to simply continue posts like this and keep the lines of communication open. When we don't hear anything we let our imagination fill in the blanks :lol:

Congrats.
Worrying and interesting at same time though. Really hoping the app is not changed or influenced by google. I don't know one person who uses google+ so don't want that added instead of Facebook. Would also not like to see my waze account linked to my google account.

Biggest concern -> I suppose all our activities and tracking through waze will be nicely packed up and sent on by google to the US government.
Can waze guarantee our activities and data is protected from google and its willful passing of user personal data to authorities with no business being in our business?

Congratulations Waze team, and especially Ehud!

Use Googles servers and resources for what they're worth. Live map tile refreshes maybe? Overkill perhaps.

Just do me a favour and don't change the name to a mashup like

Waloozle or even worse...

Gaze (lol)

Nice choice of Google over Crapbook though. They would've destroyed this community by poking it to death. Google has previous and plenty of money and resources to throw at this. Use that to your advantage.

Like many of Google's acquisitions Waze will probably stay as it is. It has its own brand and image and if anything Google would be really stupid to piss off people like editors that work for free and do a great job keeping everything fresh and correct.
Look at YouTube or Panoramio. They are now part of Google but they have barely changed, just integrated into the umbrella.
The outcome will most likely be more targeted advertising and the Waze traffic data pinched to use in Google Maps and navigation.

Also I think it's a little late to be bitching about it. Google bought the company. Live with it.

So if I buy something from you and use it, you'd call the police because I stole it?
