    So, like many of you are doing, I'm still trying to get my head around Google(tm) Buzz, and, inspired by the "Buzz '[DF] Droid' tomorrow at noon" thread, I thought it would be cool to have a thread for folks who are looking for folks to follow. I have a few, but I figured folks in here would be pretty active, since it's convenient from our Droids....

    So, at the risk of being conceited, I'll start :)

    Caveat: I have my Twitter account linked to Buzz, so if you want a taste of what you're getting into, feel free to check out http://www.twitter.com/khelek.

    is there any way to use buzz without actually using your real name?

    Heck......I'd just like to choose when I put up my real name, pic and address up online!

    Is there a way to disable this?

    Interesting -- someone else posted their account in another thread, and when I went to search for them, I came up with nothing as well. Possibly a systemic problem.

    I'll definitely try to find you and see if I have success, and thanks for the attempt to follow me!

    You can link your profile, it might be better at stopping the spam bots from getting a bunch of email addresses.

    In gmail/buzz

    click the contacts tab instead of search and you will be able to add people not on your contact list.
