    RE: Privacy in buzz. I have been using buzz and like it. However, now understand that folks can hover over my name next to one of my posts and in the lower left corner will see my gmail username and thus my gmail address. I need my email to be PRIVATE. Is there a way I can do that now? Or is this something google has to fix?

  • Even with the weight of Google behind it I feel that Google Buzz is not really bringing much to the party that will sway facebook & twitter users from their current social media fare. It is just too much of everything in the social mediasphere these days, and I am interested to see where this goes.

  • Hey, Thanks for this awesome tips. I'm gonna visit your blog more often.

  • I love google buzz but have don't like one thing when someone goes to your buzz link only if they are signed in can they see the follow me button. I think the button should be there if you aren't logged in and then you should be prompted to login if you click on it.

    There are lot more things that needs to done by Google to make Buzz more Popular. I personally feel that it should not be integrated in Gmail. We should be able to view our buzz directly Buzz.Google.Com instead of Gmail. I hope that make sense?
