for myself, I really do not need deeper social functions (e.g. pickup, share ride/location), which (in my case) would be used once per couple of months, but I prefer to have core functionality running stable, without bugs and tuned.
I would also prefer to invest developers/designers time to get user interface tuned up (menus, sub-menus) from both - graphical (avoid scrolling in main menu, order of icons in portrait and landscape in main menu, etc.) and logical (grouping and order of menu items) point of view.
That is also my feel !
I would prefer core functionnalities working well, and social features coming when everything is perfect !
Many requests are pending on core... (UI, reports radius, stability, under tunnel estimation drive, and many other most very usefull).
the problem is: who is a target user of waze?
1 -teenager who report everything on facebook, every deal, every thought, every breath? but young teens doesn't have a driving permit and doesn't have a car ... (and than... why properly facebook? in some countries there are other socials that are popular, but not facebook)
2 - mature person, who are working and need to get the traffic battle everyday, to get home first avoiding traffic, or probably professional drivers who are looking the best route to reach a destination?
i think that waze first of all is used by the second kind of persons
yes, social networks are fun, it is comfortable to use "share a root" with family, with friends... but how facebook is related to a family? and meetings with friends doesn't happens every day..
this is not a first neccessity of wazer users. First of all waze have to improve navigation tools .
