Confirm your Buzz Setup

If your a regular user of Google Buzz on Monday you would have been asked or rather reminded by Google Buzz that you need to look at your privacy settings and confirm that all is well. Google Buzz wants to be doubly sure that backlash because of their privacy settings do not crop up again. Users should not be taken by surprise  and find that private stuff their shared was actually in public mode. 

The system suggests users to follow and also the ability to block people from following you. 

The Federal Trade Commission has criticized Google's approach and members of Congress have recently called for an investigation into Google Buzz and the privacy fiasco, which might have prompted the move to make sure every Buzz user understands their privacy options. 

Google Buzz wants every individual to be made aware of their privacy options and this prompt may become a regular feature asking people to confirm their privacy settings and make sure that they are happy with the options.

Google Buzz the new social network for Gmail.

Even as Google launched Google Buzz the new social network to be based within their already popular Gmail service, Yahoo and Microsoft took turns to criticize this move.

"Busy people don't want another social network, what they want is the convenience of aggregation," Microsoft said in a statement. "We've done that. Hotmail customers have benefited from Microsoft working with Flickr, Facebook, Twitter and 75 other partners since 2008."

Yahoo tweeted a similar gibe.

"Two years after #Yahoo! launched #Buzz, Google follows suit. Check out the original:"

Even as they spoke of their innovative forays into social networking both Yahoo and Microsoft were unable to deliver the knock out punch.

According to com Score Google Buzz has added 176 million members on Tuesday to the new service. Not a bad start.

Google Buzz let's you post status updated share videos and pics and automatically connects you to your Gmail friends.
