It's basically a cross between Twitter and Facebook - except better, IMO. It's a little more "personal/private" because it's limited to the people in your Gmail address book unless you actively seek-out others.

I'm really excited about it. Anyone who has a gmail account should check it out. I personally see it as a way to extend twitter (and other social websites) instead of a replacing them. The link below is to my initial reaction. Does anyone here not use gmail? I'm wondering if you have to sign up to comment.
I've got coffee shops, letters, phone, texts, email and facebook - that's already too much to be going on with. Anything that increased the traffic coming into my phone would drive me nuts. I do google talk with my friend down in New Mexico, too, because it's quicker and easier than skype or whatever. The thing is, when I communicate with people, I want actual conversations, not telegrams.
Actually, I really enjoy google talk, because it gives both of us more time to think how we want to reply, and there's no sense of pressure like there is in a phone conversation - but it's more immediate than email or whatever. Plus I can choose a backing track for the conversation .
