    So, what do you think of Google Buzz. Do you think it will fly? Or will it sting Facebook?

      first impression is good. but i don't know how to stop the messages in inbox. I think it will be good alternative for twitter.

        I think it's going to kill Twitter and I wrote a hub about it. … to-Kill-It

      Clutter inside inbox. Maybe they should add it to Wave.

      I'm waiting to see how it works from within Gmail before I decide if I like it or not.

      I saw it today on my gmail, but have not taken a good look at it yet.  Really, at the moment, I am not interested.

      Enjoying it thus far. I know people have complaints about it (especially FriendFeed people who seem to think it's too similar and yet not as good) but I'm a fan of the format. Plus I think Google does a good job of adapting stuff over time so it'll change as it needs to in order to make people happier with it.

      Google Buzz right now has too many issues. It's a beta product that got pushed to release too soon. All of the problems like privacy policy issues, ease of use, navigation, integration with gmail, auto opt-in, etc. are going to bring Google a ton of headaches.

      Google buzz is a bit more risky than Facebook and Twitter. Because facebook and twitter do not mix with our email contacts and buzz is directly associated with us. check out my blog for some potential issues I raised in my latest blog post.

      I've turned it off for now. Not much use at the moment.

        Be careful when you turn off Buzz. Google will delete your public Google profile (for some ood reason)

        It is good for those who have mailing list.

      If you choose your settings wisely, I think Buzz should be fine.
      Within an office, or among close friends it is ok, but you may need to consider having multiple email ids to keep some BUZZ private.
