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

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

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

Apparently Google really stepped into it with this launch:

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.

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.
