Google Buzz

Anyone using this? Thoughts? I'm not sure I really "get it" yet.

Re: Google Buzz

well it's kind of like a "twitter" type thing, but a bit better threaded and collaborative it seems

better media and social network (sans facebook) integration as well

Re: Google Buzz

btw there's a buzz feature on google maps app for most smartphones, you can actually see people buzzing around you, where exactly they buzzed from, etc if it's turned on

so you could eat at a restaurant, buzz about it there.. let people see where it is, add pics to it, etc all over google maps

I'd highly recommend managing your contacts well

Re: Google Buzz

Apparently Google really stepped into it with this launch:

Re: Google Buzz

At first I thought it was meh and didn't really care for how they handled privacy, then I realized it has way less spam and images and crap than facebook and they addressed the privacy concerns. Two thumbs up.

Re: Google Buzz

Google has these concerns with nearly every newly released platform. It's cheaper and easier for them to say sorry and fix it a bit later, while rolling with the data that they collect from it originally. That being said, their products are great, if you're concerned with security/privacy, jump on a week or three later.
