One of the main issues with buzz was privacy control and a recent survey with Twitter users showed that 15 percent of twitter users had privacy concerns.

These new improvements include:

1)     It was hard to find “filter connection” option but now you have been given control over your profile since that option has been made more visible. You can now choose what you want to show on your public profile that includes your followers or people you are following.

2)     A “Block” link will be added to the list of your followers, which would allow you to block anyone even if they don’t have public profiles.

3)     People with Public Profiles and those with private profiles could be identified separately.

Privacy concerns were taken seriously and within two days they came up with such great improvements. Even though buzz is newbie in the industry but they’ve taken some serious steps to take it to the peak. Way to go buzz…
