    What's all the buzz about?

    Don't know if it really belongs here, but wanted the skinny from real people on Google Buzz. What's the intent or the advantage to utilizing the tool?

    I agree. I've made some god friends through buzz that i never would've met on fb or twitter.

    The widget they just have us makes it a little better, but we definitely need a full app with notifications.

    I opened up my GMail one day and I was a member of "Buzz". I didn't know anything about it until that morning. Then it told me that I had 8 people who were my Buzz friends. One that was chosen randomly to be a Buzz friend was a good friend of mine for many years who was tragically killed in a small plane crash about 3 months before. All I could think of was "thanks Google" and promptly deleted it.
    Thank you to all who have served or are serving our great country. You're always in my thoughts and prayers.

    I like Buzz. I can see what's going on around town. There was an air show last weekend at the Air Force base. Some people give shout outs to a good place to eat. I like it for that. It'd be dumb to try and make it into a social networking thing. I think it's best served just to let people post what's going on around town.

    Its just another form of social networking. I like it and use it fairly often. Much more then I ever used my twitter.

    I like it. I've been on a few road trips recently and it's been kind of neat to chat with people from other cities while I was visiting.
