Google Buzz – What? How? Why?

It’s been 2 days since the launch of Google’s very own Social Networking Site. Some call it a killer of Facebook, some term it as heartbreak for Twitter. Well, its up to you to decide what u like it to be.

There have been numerous views, reviews, comments about Google Buzz. Some are positive, some not that encouraging. You might wonder this post too might give you a download of those reviews. Sorry to disappoint you, I am here to give u a background of what Google Buzz is all about.

What?

Google Buzz is a social integration and messaging tool by Google, designed to integrate into the company’s web-based email program, Gmail.

–  Buzz allows users to choose to share publicly with the world or privately to a small group of friends each time they post. Picasa, Flickr, Google Reader, YouTube, Blogger, and Twitter are currently integrated.

How?


–   All you need to have is a Gmail account. Just Login, there will be a Buzz logo below your Inbox section

–  Just enter it, and Buzz is on…………….

–   It will show all your contacts, and also those who are following you (if your friends are already buzzing) and also those whom you can follow on Buzz.

–   All you need to do is integrate sites like Twitter, Picasa, Flickr and other sites into your Buzz, and start sharing your links, pics, comments with your friends.

–  Comments are updated – Real time, Yes Real Time.

Why?

–   Why Use Buzz?

–   It’s integrated with Gmail – so no need to invite friends, it automatically adds those people to your friends list.

–  Buzz brings in Twitter, Picasa and Flickr

–  You can tag locations and GPS co-ordinates on other social services

–   It’s Google

–   Its NEW, DIFFERENT

Although it’s just a start, but a good start. Go on, try it out.
