Google Buzz going Away

Tuesday, October 25, 2011 // by Saurabh Sharma // Labels: , , , //

Google Buzz is a social networking, microblogging and messaging tool from Google that was integrated into the company's web-based email program, Gmail. Users could share links, photos, videos, status messages and comments organized in "conversations" and visible in the user's inbox. On October 14, 2011, Google announced that it would be discontinuing the Buzz service.
Buzz enabled users to choose to share publicly with the world or privately to a group of friends each time they post. Picasa, Flickr, Google Latitude, Google Reader, Google Sidewiki, YouTube, Blogger, FriendFeed, identi.ca and Twitter were integrated. The creation of Buzz was seen by industry analysts as an attempt by Google to compete with social networking websites like Facebook and microblogging services like Twitter. Buzz also included several interface and interaction elements from other Google products (e.g. Google Reader) such as the ability to "like" a post.
Google executive Sergey Brin said that by offering social communications, Buzz would help bridge the gap between work and leisure, but the service and its rollout were strongly criticized at the time for taking insufficient account of privacy concerns.

Finally Google is ending the Google Buzz and Taking Down its Services
