Google goes Social with : Google goes Social with Slide 2: Google is making further inroads into mobile with the launch of a new social networking tool called Buzz. Slide 3: The service lets people share status updates and comments with friends, while also importing content from Twitter, videos from YouTube, RSS feeds from Google Reader and photos from Picasa and Flickr. Google Buzz: The Details : Google Buzz: The Details Google’s product manager Todd Jackson, introduced “a new way to communicate within Gmail”. Key Features are :- Auto-following Rich, fast sharing experience Public and private sharing Inbox integration Just the good stuff Slide 5: Google Buzz for mobile Google Buzz also offers an added benefit for mobile users. The incorporation of Google Buzz geotagging means that mobile status updates can be traced back to exactly where they were made. Other users can then see this data and even bring it up on Google Mobile Maps to get hyper-local information. Go beyond status messagesShare updates, photos, videos, and more.

Connect sites you already use Import your stuff from Twitter, Picasa, Flickr, and Google Reader. See updates in real time New posts and comments pop in as they happen. No refresh required. Just the good stuff Buzz recommends interesting posts and weeds out ones you're likely to skip. Slide 8: To make sure you don't miss out on the best part of sharing, Buzz sends responses to your posts straight to your inbox. Unlike static email messages, buzz messages in your inbox with the Buzz you’ve created and all of the comments and images associated with it. You can follow the specific people whose posts you want to see, Google Buzz has a “recommended” feature that will show buzzes from people you don’t follow if your friends are sharing or commenting on that person’s buzz. You can remove it or change this in settings. Slide 9: Buzz is similar to Facebook and Twitter, which have grown rapidly by making it easy for people to share information about themselves with contacts—and it’s clearly inspired by both of those services. Just two obvious examples: To send a ‘Buzz’ directly to a friend’s Gmail inbox, you use the ‘@’ function, and there’s also a list of recommended users to “follow”—both features that Twitter has pushed. There are public and private settings for different posts. You can post updates to specific contact groups. This is a lot like Facebook friend lists. Slide 10: Google Buzz disclosed Gmail contacts At issue is a feature that compiles a list of the Gmail contacts who users most frequently e-mail or chat with. Buzz automatically starts following these people and makes the list public, meaning strangers can see who Buzz users have been in contact with. Buzz only shares information about other people who are using Buzz and have set up public profiles in Google. So currently, most Gmail users are not publicly listed by the service. Users can also "unfollow" people who they don't want to be linked to. And while Buzz requires users to set up a public profile before they can post messages, it does give them an option to hide who they are following and who is following them. However, the default setting is to make the information public, and only users who click on an "edit" tab can see the choice to opt out. That means many people who start using Buzz may be publicly linked to other users without realizing it. There are some mitigating factors about Google Buzz:- Slide 11: Google Buzz ask users "How do you want to be seen to others?" when they log into the service for the first time. The default option will be "Show the list of the people I'm following and the list of people following me on my public profile," but that box can be unchecked and the option is much easier to find. Google has not yet added Google Buzz to its Privacy Dashboard, which could go a long way toward satisfying some privacy concerns by making it very clear where and how Buzz information is being shared with Google and the public.
