Google Buzz: It's Wave for the Masses
So you found Google Wave’s features too heavy for you to understand. If you recently logged into GMail and did a refresh, you probably were welcomed by a new violator that introduces a “Twitter within GMail.” Well, it’s that and more. Say hello to Google Buzz.
In essence, it’s the FaceBook update screen integrated into GMail. You can post updates, link photos and attach the RSS feed of other sites such as Blogger, Flickr, Picasa, etc. Essentially, Google is giving its users a easy time to adapt into a new social news service on their terms. And we’re fine with that.
It appears that Google Buzz seems to be an answer to its competition: Yahoo! Meme. By integrating updates and API’s into GMail, you won’t need to log into another website. Everything is within GMail.
Also, while the office bans Facebook and Twitter during work hours, I sincerely doubt they ban GMail. Teehee. Try it out one. A simple refresh to your GMail should do the trick.
