Originally, I was excited about Google Buzz. Then I saw it. Having acquainted myself with the media giant's answer to social networking, I've decided it's basically a Twitter feed for the people you email. In my case, that's four people. Buzz allows its users to sync their Twitter feeds as well, so the Buzz messages pile up in my Gmail account as I've probably already read them on Twitter.

Apparently Google sent out an apology response immediately after the product's release, making it the fastest commercial backtrack in history. Bravo to Google for knowing its audience, I guess.

The bottom line: I won't use Buzz until it becomes an entirely different product. Google, you're better than this.
