Google has launched their own micro-blogging system on top of their already famous GMail. The new Google Buzz is very similar to Twitter except you can add photos/videos/geo-tag without having to use additional apps.
Also, the new Google Buzz is an “open” system that allows your Buzz to be connected seamlessly to your Facebook/Twitter accounts.
I have to say, I like this new Google Buzz, it will certainly be fun having the big G jump into the micro-blogging game.
And since I just bought the Nexus One, this will be rather fun to try on the mobile version too.
Another great feature Google has added to their new Buzz social system is the ability to geo-tag places sorta like FourSquares for Twitter.
Google Buzz is a new way to start conversations about the things you find interesting. It’s built right into Gmail, so you don’t have to peck out an entirely new set of friends from scratch — it just works. If you think about it, there’s always been a big social network underlying Gmail. Buzz brings this network to the surface by automatically setting you up to follow the people you email and chat with the most. We focused on building an easy-to-use sharing experience that richly integrates photos, videos and links, and makes it easy to share publicly or privately (so you don’t have to use different tools to share with different audiences). Plus, Buzz integrates tightly with your existing Gmail inbox, so you’re sure to see the stuff that matters most as it happens in real time.
