Today when you sign-in to Gmail, you’ll get this page -
With the growing popularity of twitter,facebook; now Google has launched its own way of sharing updates, photos, videos and more. It has launched Google Buzz. Buzz is built right into Gmail and automatically starts following the people you email and chat with the most.
You can choose to share publicly with the world or privately to a small group of friends each time you post. As you sign-in to Gmail, you will see the buzz icon below the Inbox. Google is rolling out to all in the days to come. Buzz is also available on mobile.
Google has come out with Buzz, now its for people whether they like it or not . Its a nice catchy ‘name’ ? (remember Yahoo Buzz? .
Google Buzz for mobile
EDIT: After trying it out for sometime,I’m not sure whether people will like this another social thing or not. I think all these have been tried and done before by others like Microsoft and yahoo.
Twitter and facebook gives a different kind of experience and my preference is still twitter, either in its web UI or using some twitter client. I’m not giving a total thumbs down to Google Buzz but let us see how it grows with more additional features. If it tries to add more feature it should not end up like Wave. Complicating things.
Let me try Buzz for few more days. Again I would say, I prefer twitter!!
