Enjoy using Facebook, but hate the disorganization of normal social networking. Well, Google certainly hopes so. Google has now launched Google Buzz, a social media tool integrated with Gmail. The thing that sets Buzz apart from Facebook is the ability to teach the software your interest.
Facebook is great way to share things with friends. And keeping tabs on everyone you know with the News Feed is just plain addicting. The problem is that there is more information than most people care about. Ever miss the update about your best friend being engaged because your feed is covered in Farmville updates? While Google Buzz is here to save the day with the ability to say what you want to hear about and what you don't
The real question is whether or not this will catch on. It doesn’t matter if it is the coolest software of all time, if your friends don’t use it neither will you. However, the chances are this will be the next big thing. The reason is that Google likes to play the game they invented called Google Wins. How do you play? First someone does something, then Google does it better and eventually completely takes over. Search engines, maps, email, and even cell phone OS. Google WINS!
With Google Buzz they have more on their side than just the usually Google determination to dominate, they already own the best compliment software on the market. Picasa, Flickr, Google Reader, YouTube, Blogger, and Twitter are all on board.
So go ahead and make the switch, because it won’t be long before using Facebook is as out of fashion as MySpace.
