Google Buzz: Google’s Latest Social Product

Major failure of Google’s social network “Orkut” left it behind in Social spotlight. Facebook the largest Social Network is the biggest rival of Google when it comes to social media. Google has tried to compete it but all it’s previous projects faced lack of success. Some of it’s projects have completely been completely ceased.

Google now came up with so called the most prodigious product named Google Buzz to compete other rivals. The most innovative project so far.

Competition begins as of February 9, 2010 as Google launched the brand new social product with hopes it won’t fail like it’s predecessors.

Integrated right into Gmail (Google Web based Email) with no setup required and a user base of 36 Million it looks promising.

Google Buzz

Important Features:

  • You can share your ideas to specific people or to anyone.
  • Comments can easily be tracked as they are sent right into your Gmail.
  • All email contacts are automatically added as friends.
  • Importing stuff from sites like Twitter, Flickr, Picasa & Google reader makes it very useful.
  • No refresh needed to view comments as they pop-up in real time.

Google Buzz & Twitter:

Twitter is supported by Buzz just like Flickr, Picasa, Youtube etc and Buzz will automatically import your tweets. This would definitely save you some time but one of the problems is that Twitter won’t be able to pull up your buzzes. You will have to keep both Twitter and Buzz open for the updates.

Google Buzz & Facebook:

Google on the other hand refused to support Facebook into Buzz, which means no Facebook on buzz. I don’t see why? Maybe Competition? No status updates, Post updates or even Facebook Connect is supported by Buzz and this definitely is disappointing, as Facebook fans will not like it.

    ‘Orkut’ is not a total failure. It is a big hit in Brazil and India. 1.4 Billion user can not be ignored.

    you might be right but when it comes to global competition you can’t focus on few countries.

    Orkut is an epic failure that is why Google came up with Google Buzz.
