The Buzz On "Google Buzz"

While the world is still doing the best to figure out just what buzz.google.com actually does, we do know the following:

  • It works with gmail (Google's free email service)
  • It allows you to post your emails and it's contents a recipient, group of recipients or the general public
  • It allows you to tag in content into your messaging fromt the web
  • Pushes YouTube video and flickr respectively as it's delivery medium of choice (IMHO, the best at least today)
  • Comments to posts are then sent to your inbox, much like email replies
  • Social integration with Twitter, Picasa and more
  • Google buzz makes recommendations on content popularity and I'm assuming profiling criteria based on what it finds in your gmail account and posts
