Google have decided to venture into Social Networks with the creation of Google Buzz which has set the world wide web, well, a buzz with talk of how this could be the next big thing.
So what’s the big deal? Basically you can automatically follow the people you normally email and chat with the most in Gmail. You’ll be able to publish your ideas to the world or just to your closest friends, it’s your call. And any comments you receive will be sent directly to your inbox so you can’t miss them. You also have thumbnails with each post and you can browse full screen pictures from websites and import stuff from your Twitter, Google reader, Flickr and Picasa accounts. All of the updates are real time and of course Buzz recommends the most interesting things and the ones you should be avoiding.
But let’s be honest, whilst it’s great they’ve chosen to integrate all your favourite social networks into one space, they’ve forgotten one rather important one, Facebook. Will this stand in the way of Googles world domination? Only time will tell!
