Already possible and being done with livemap. Sorta.

Hi noam and Waze team...

What will happen to Facebook, Foursquare and Bing integration either in Waze app or WME after Google acquisition? I hope they will stay the same as they are besides new additions of Google Maps and G+.

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?

I hope this change the way you share some informatiins.
At the moment you got 1 billion of $ and we loose the bing aerials.
I hope G share with us their better aerials than Bing.
I hope G force you to give more support to our needs, like answers to questions still alone, unanswered.

No matter how it turns out past this point, I have had a great year getting to know more about my Northern California than I ever thought possible. Hopefully I can continue to have Waze be my OCD outlet and I won't have to find yet another new one. ;)

Congrats to the whole Waze team. I personally know the feeling when you reach this point of some cash for hard work in a startup. :D

Too bad the volunteer workforce cannot share in that happiness. :|

No we did not loose Bing aerials yet, we don't know and still hope to keep both.
And Google aerials are not always better, in several places they are older than bing's.
