Google Buzz – what is it?
I looked at Google Buzz some months ago and couldn’t quite figure it out. I’ve been using Twitter and Facebook and some other great social networking tools but now I am thinking that maybe it is time to give it another try.
What is Google Buzz…well I describe it as a social media tool that is something between Twitter and a Blog. My big question is still where does it fit in on my social media landscape and toolset. I know I can tweet for short messages and for sharing links and of course the blog is a place where I can create permanet links to topics that I think interest other people, colleagues, customers and friends.
What I like about BUZZ is that it is still a casual looking tool but I can go deeper into topics of interest and I’m hoping that one day it will link to other google apps. Once it does that it can become a tool that will be useful for group discussion and even an enterprise wide tool.
So I’ll have another look but to be honest I’m still trying to fathom out where and how I would use it. Also, I blog, tweet, foursquare and facebook so I need to find the time to really explore this platform alongside the other social media tools that I enthuse about so much
If anyone out there has some great experiences that they would like to share, then I would love to hear from you.
