My first impression of Google Buzz was already negative. Before I had barely started, I already had couple dozen people following me. You know... cost/demand analysis. They made Google wave overly hyped and no one got it in the beginning. So, the demand went all over the place including Ebay. Later, not many used it. Now not many people wants buzz. Why? Simple!!! many people felt that It was pushed to their inbox.
So, usual remark was that Buzz... a failed wave.
I believe, had they limited it to "invitation-only" for a month, the demand would have gotten high.
Many remarked that having buzz inside gmail was like sleeping in a transparent bedroom. It is not, but people felt insecure. I believe, the same person who was die-hard seeker of Google wave had been turned off by that time. Tuning and tweaking the buzz came later.
Google, you came late this time!
People who had access to social networking site had already been engaged. Clinging is easy. Many people also felt lack of innovation in there... What was buzz all about? Google + twitter? Google + facebook?
Call it Gootter? Gwitter? twiggle? GoogleFace? or FaceGoogle?
Google, a leader in many respect, blinked and came late into this social play ground.
I tried it, before the end of 24th hour the network grew to more than my regular contacts. I believe I am already connected to the people I wanted to connect. New connections are OK, However, to me it was just one more way to distraction. No! I already have enough distractions :)
Off the Buzz... not!
In anyways, I decided to go off the buzz.
I thought I had disabled Google Buzz... By writing last "Bye Bye" and disconnecting it.
But it was not!!!
Later, a friend in told me that I was still updating my status in Google buzz (But I was not, really). I looked into my public profile and found that was the case. This was because of the fact that it had pulled out stuffs from my twitter and connected sites.
It was like my ghost account. I am out of buzz... not!!!
Finally, after deleting all the updates (oh... they call it buzz) and disconnecting all the sites...
I am off the buzz.
Connecting Back will be easy... unless they close the back door
On the bright side... if I want to connect again, it will be quick. It will be like jumping at the middle of the party.
