Google Buzz

Post by sewforlife » February 11th, 2010, 7:50 am

What do you think about?
anyone else agree that it's like facebook (with the liking comments/statuses)/twitter (following people)/gmail (all your email) put together?
Nerds rule. Nerds are awesome. Nerds will someday (soon) rule the world. And you know it.

2010. Be prepared. If not, you f(l)ail!

It's weird.

I personally don't like the fact that they always have to automatically post your status... I mean, you can just look at the person's status on your chat list if you wanted to.

It's an easy way to spam people too. :roll:

I don't use either Facebook or Twitter, but Buzz's presence in Gmail, which is already my premiere method of contacting people, means that I'm using it a little.

They do need to give us more privacy settings though :?

I don't like how you get an email notification whenever someone posts something. Especially when you can see how many new comments you have on the buzz thing underneath ur inbox.

Yeah. I mean, you can just check the little thing. It's like having another inbox, but they still send you the notifications.

Oh yeah, I should've known they would add Buzz to the filtering options.
