    Google can definitely challenge facebook or twitter in their own turf if they decide to market heavily.

    Google need real time data badly which can be obtained from services like these.


    Myspace missed the chance to buy facebook for $75 million.

    Now that facebook is introducing their own mail service their current valuation will be justified.

    I'm not sure what happened to wave, I play around when I think about it (not often). Not sure how this buzz thing will go.

    Can someone tell Google they can't own the world.

    I'm afraid that one day I'll wake up from a good night's rest only to find that google owns my car, bird, husband, home (and everything in it) and maybe they'll lay claim to my death/grave site.:rolleyes:

    I don't mind if Google is going to give us the cars, bird, homes, for free (maybe not the wife, but if they can insured my future wife, that would be great too).

    a big HELL NO.

    I think Google Buzz will just join the heap of lots of other failed Google services.

    It's designed to allow users to share links, photos, videos, and status updates with their friends, as well as talk about and shared content. It's very similar to the News Feed in Facebook in that regard and it's also similar to FriendFeed.

    And that's Google Buzz's problem right there. It's a clone of to too many services that have already been released. Google Buzz looks like a "me-too" product. I don't think Google Buzz will get much press.

    Also - add to this that the fact remains - if in order for it to even be 'usable' requires "integration" with other social networks... its just more evidence that it is trying to piggyback.

    i agree , it is to small you can not add friends easy.
    it is just a extra service but i don't belive in it.
    They have to make it much more customer friendly.
    For belgiums it is to hard to use it.
    if you know alot off users in belgium have already problems with twitter and facebook.

    I use twitter only for marketing purposes, I really dont want to use buzz with some bunch of people in my personal account, maybe create a new account just for buzz, but in my personal NO way

    wave is still out there. buzz is the little brother to wave. buzz is also more social oriented.

    why buy facebook or twitter when you can create something that will put them out of business.

    google is now going to have search so customized it will be ridiculous. that was facebooks one ad feature that set it apart - specific ad targeting. You want to sell to a 24 year old guy that is single and like the bears...facebook can get that specific. the problem was converting.

    now imagine wrapping all that google has its arms around:
    email
    photos - picasa
    maps
    docs
    etc.

    and building into a customized search. laser targeting adwords marketing - if they get the public to buy into the service.

    Google sadly has not got the marketing right (yes i too cant believe i just said that) with regards to social networks.

    Has anyone heard of Orkut? This is a social network ran by google however it is no where near as popular as twitter or facebook.

    Google Buzz sadly should not even be classified as a social network as it relys way to much on gmail and that will put off alot of users straight away.

    For time being, its FB and the big T leading the way over the Big G

    the other day google was complaining how internet was too slow in the US...
    the next day they announced they were coming out w/a broadband service

    sounds to me like they're trying to avoid a downfall by introducing these new services and products. but, imo, they're like Microsoft in that there's no innovation...just repackaging of existing services.
