    Just wondering if any of you have coem up with any decent strategies for marketing on Buzz? It seems that if adopted by the masses it will likely be a better tool then even Twitter.

    Already there are several forums related to Buzz popping up such as http://BuzzUsers.com not to mention sites liek Techcrunch using it just liek Twitter and Facebook

    I started looking at Buzz about 10 minutes after it was released. It seems like it could potentially become something that could eat Twitter alive, especially since it's backed by Google. I will start digging...

    Its crap - really crap!
    People will use it mostly as an aggregater and not as an independent service

    I think its better than twitter because you can add photos and you can post on other peoples profiles not to mention I just created a new gmail account using buzz and I have 200 followers already.Theres no limit on how many people you can follow.All around great service.

    Now we just need a friend adder bot.

    It's really simple to get followers on there plus the fact that it reveals there e-mails in it. Once the people figure out how to hide it, but for now it's a bit of wild west in harvesting emails on it. Plus you can search your keyword in it really easy and it gives all the emails.

    Folks, Do you create a new gmail account with the keywords your trying to promote and then go look for followers? Or just use a regular John Doe name? What is the best approach here. Thanks...

    1. Get started right away. Create a company Gmail account (hopefully something close to companyname@gmail.com) that you will use as a company Google Buzz account. As an individual, you hopefully already have a Google account with Gmail for RSS and other things, but if not, get one for yourself too.
    2. Find people in your industry, and follow them. Following more people gives Google Buzz a better idea of what you like and don't like, and it does encourage other people to follow you back because they do get notified that you followed them. Note: right now you can only use Google Buzz on Android phones and iPhones, so you may need to wait to get started on this. Like marketing? You can follow HubSpot in Google Buzz, or follow me too.
    3. Multimedia, multimedia, multimedia! The golden rule in social media is to be interesting, and Google Buzz allows you to be more interesting more easily using multimedia (photo and video) content. Just like LinkedIn, Twitter or Facebook, your status updates alone are not very interesting to people. You need to create useful and interesting blog articles, photos, videos and more, and post that type of information. Google Buzz has multimedia support built-in, so use it!
    4. Encourage everyone in your company to be active on Google Buzz. Marketing is not just for the Marketing Department anymore. You need to get lots of people in your company to blog, to be active in social media and to reach out to the community of people in your industry. Just like you encourage them to be active in other social networks, encourage them to be active in Google Buzz.
    5. Remember that social media affects SEO too. Google has already started to put social status updates into search results, and they recently launched social search. All this means that even if you think everyone you sell to will never use social media, you still need to have a presence in social media as a company. Building a larger presence in social media and using social media to promote your content will help you rank more often in plain old search results (which are no longer so "plain" or "old"), which is important for every company.
    6. Viral content is more important than ever. The one thing that Google Buzz does differently from other social media services is that it curates or filters the content from the people you follow, meaning that only the best or most popular content bubbles to the top. Google Buzz will also show people recommended Buzz from people they are not following, based on popularity. So, the more viral and popular your content is, the further and faster it will spread. This recommendation feature is somewhat unique to Google Buzz, and makes viral content even moreiimportant to being successful using Google Buzz.
