Google Buzz Modifies Privacy Even More

Earlier I posted few improvements to Google buzz privacy and Google came up with some more quick improvements. Google Buzz has been launched for four days now and they are working really hard to get things on track. According to the team more changes will be made over the span of next few days.

Below are the updates that would be implemented in next few days:

1)     – At start Buzz was designed to automatically follow everyone who has been sent an email, which was rather annoying for few users. Google has changed this feature to auto-suggest rather than auto-follow. This new feature will allow users to choose who they want or don’t want to follow. This new feature will suggest users on who they want to follow on the basis of most emailed people so on and so forth. Existing users will have this option available over the next couple of weeks.

2)     – Google Picasa & Google reader will no longer be automatically supported by Buzz. They will have to be manually added like Twitter, Flickr etc. Reader & Picasa web albums only automatically connected data that was public but recent feedbacks from users led the changes and they are no longer automatic.

3) – A Buzz button will be added to Gmail’s “Settings” next to “Themes”. Multiple options would allow users to either hide/Show Buzz button from Gmail or completely disable it. You can also show/hide the list of your followers and people you are following.

This week has been very demanding from Google buzz team and so far they are playing along. Hope to see more improvements in near future.
