Google Buzz – Why Does it Matter?

February 16, 2010 Leave a comment

Google BuzzYou may have heard about Google Buzz by now.  The new Gmail add-in has created a stir in the media, with Google being accused of violating privacy among other issues – but the service itself is creating a stir as well among the “Social Media” types base solely on its merits.

In order to use Google Buzz you must have a Gmail email address. Our family has been using Gmail almost exclusively as our home email addresses for several years now. We are happy that Google has made email easy to use, easy to organize – and especially easy to archive and search. I can search my archived email for all kinds of items – attached photos and documents, etc. – my wife and I find this extremely valuable!

So, if you’ve just been sold on Gmail – or you already use it, getting back to Google Buzz – you may want to give it a try. If you haven’t been using the Social Media networks like Facebook and Twitter, Google Buzz is an easy to use service that will get you on to the Social Media train while it is still in the station!

I won’t go into how to use the service – it is easy enough to figure out – sign up for Gmail – and the Google Buzz icon will show up right below your email inbox. Start using it, and you will see why it matters. Follow your friends, and let them follow you – get social! It’s a great learning experience, and over time Google will improve this service based on your feedback.

Google Buzz matters because so many of you that have avoided social media will now have a quick entry ramp onto the new way that info is being exchanged on the Internet. Jump in with both feet – you won’t be sorry!
