Most of the things they make turn out to be pretty good so it wouldn't surprise me if this does compete with Facebook at some point. I haven't checked it out yet though, and I really have no interest in another social networking site at the moment.
I saw it. I'm not sure how to feel about it. At one point I know google does good stuff. But somehow I'd like my emails to remain that...emails, not a social network. Even yahoo made the same mistake of incorporating status updates/messenger into the email page. I just like my emails, thank you.
Ok, but Chrome is a personal choice. You can't choose to use Buzz while all of your friends choose to remain on Facebook or MySpace, for example. I mean, you could but why bother if nobody you know is on it?
I've never ever heard of Buzz until I read this thread.
I had a look at the link and to be honest it doesn't look all that great. It's not something I'm interested in now. Give it a few months or a year or whatever and it might be the next "new thing" if they put alot of work and development into it.
