    Using Google Buzz? Here’s a privacy checklist

    If you’re not careful, you could be exposing more than you think

    "If you've heard of Google Buzz, chances are you've also heard about some of the privacy concerns that surround it. The social media service offers some cool ways to share photos, links, status messages, and more with fellow Google Buzz users. But if you're not careful, you may end up sharing more than you expect."

    I found this to be very helpful, and went back followed a few of the tips that I didn't consider, of course I had to delete some of my older/first Buzz Posting, because whatever you change in your Profile is for any Posting going forward; but it is worth the read.

    I'm officially a Buzz addict. I hope there will be no issues with Yahoo! Over the usage of the word "Buzz"

    I'm starting to like it more and more also.

    There are some things i would like added tho.

    I don't like "Mute" and "Un-Mute"
    it does not seem to work. A delete option would be nice.

    After really tweaking it, I'm liking it a whole lot better, and the web buzz (buzz.Google.com) from your Device's browser its nice, and they have a shortcut in th Market.

    And to contunue the direct assault on Facebook the mobile site has this familiar hint of Powder Blue, but its all good did you hear Google next venture is Broadband...

    Buzz has forced me to clean up my contacts a bit and create some groups so it will be easier to Buzz to whom I choose, I was not very organized

    I still feeling like I'm missing something....or Buzz is....

    I would like to see PS have the ability to be followed via Buzz. The front page articles/posts or some thing like that.

    For anyone who would like to turn off BUZZ, you can do so at the very bottom of the page. There is an option to turn it off.

    FYI in case someone is wondering?

    I'm enjoying Buzz, but only minor complaint is that my setting to show my last name keeps activating on its own and I have to keep unchecking it. It's good to see Google working on these issues.
