    It's a nice feature and well intentioned but I can't really see it doing much to make a dent in the likes of Twitter who have all the celebrity backing along with a well established and proven track record. I can see it being something really useful for when Google Wave goes final though, it'll tie in the package!

    I would have to agree with most of you. I'm normally the first to jump behind Google innovations, but not this one.

    It just seems like Buzz all on it's own is just not going to work. We've all become so accustomed to Twitter that Buzz is just another place to go and update my status.

    That being said, could it be part of a larger plan? How will buzz interact with the other Google products? Yes, they've made it part of Gmail but what about Wave? What about Friend Connect? Why do I still have the ability to set a different status message for GTalk and why isn't it synchronized with Buzz?

    There are just too many loose ends to see this as the final product.

    Um, well maybe I spoke too soon. If I had bothered to log back into my Gmail and look at Buzz I would have seen that I can already connect with with a slew of services like YouTube, Twitter and GTalk.

    That's debatable.

    Gmail has many, many more users than twitter. Probably much less of an attrition rate, too.

    If they can manage to make it not suck, I think it could be a contender.

    Cool

    I have read most of the comments as entry of Buzz will kill more to Facebook than Twitter. But in fact its triangular war now.

    I think what I'm really starting to like about Buzz is the integration level with other products, even non-Google products. I don't have to download an application to get it to sync with Twitter and there are no 3rd party services to make some functionality work.

    At first I really couldn't see the point but it's beginning to grow on me.

    Can't you see it just under 'Inbox' in Gmail? (You have to be using Gmail, as far as I know)

    I'm using my own domain with Google Apps- so I have the gmail service, just not the gmail domain. Google's website says it will be rolling out buzz to Google Apps in the next few months... so I have to wait!

    OK, so you're a commercial customer of the Google App suite, like email, calendar, docs etc? Well, I guess its kinda stupid of them to ignore their paying customers like that, but perhaps that's an indication of some indecision at google over the value of this service. Who knows?

    You know, that's a very good point. It seems like Apps always gets things after the main service (labs, chat, etc. were all late to the game). Plus your Google Apps access information is not the same as your Google Account access (for things like Picasa, Google Maps, iGoogle, Google Profile, etc. etc.) So I need to have both a Google Apps login and a gmail account!

    Maybe it isn't the indecision, but rather Google wants to have its own Google users who aren't Apps users... but still.

    It's still opt-out is it not? Therefore whether you follow Buzz or not is irrelevant because you need to actively opt-out to maintain your privacy.

    Google becomes a little more "evil" every day.

    I heard something on news about a new project of google. They trying to force gmail users to join this project. Google will try to make competition for Facebook,Hi5. Maybe you know more about this and post something good or bad about it. Thanks
