How Long Will Google Wave Friend Invites Take?

google-wave-logoSteph Hannon, a Google Wave Engineer, just tweeted about friend invites from people who already have Google Wave.

She said this on Twitter (@twephanie ):

“if a friend invited you to Wave, it will at least days if not longer till you get your invite. invites are not sent immediately.”

So if you are lucky enough to have a friend who sent you an invite, you’ll have to wait just a little bit longer to get the official invite from Google!

Is all of the “waiting”, and “supply / demand” effect with Google Wave a marketing strategy from Google or what?
