Google Buzz Creates a BuzzDCI
We can notice Google turning more and more social from the updates that are happening day-to-day in Google and its products. Google apart from being the best search engines when compared to Yahoo and Bing, wishes to bring more social features to beat Social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter.
It has become a challenge for Google to meet the real time world. You can see the social update from the Google Team like bringing real time search which includes tweets in search result pages, Social Search, Share icon added in the Google Toolbar, Sidewiki, Google Wave and Google adds another one new feature to the above list. The Google Buzz in your Gmail and Mobile.
Google wave which was announced earlier to Buzz says “Communicate and Collabrate in real time” but many of us cannot understand the usage of Google wave 🙁 That was a reason behind the failure of Google Wave.
Google has announced this feature today. A new way to share and communicate through Gmail. This has not been rolled out for all the Gmail users yet. It connects you with the friends in your Gmail contact and also with the sites you use like Twitter, Picasa, Flickr, Blogspot, Youtube, and Google Reader. And another good news is that Buzz will be available for Business soon.

Mobile and Buzz
When it comes to Mobile, location relevancy is going to a play major role as per Buzz. iPhone and Android users can post buzzes as voice message. There is a web app introduced for the iPhone and Android users where you can update their messages live and users present at the same place can watch their views instantly. Geo-tagging feature is also available, so that you are tagged with the place from where you update the buzz. And other phones will get updated with Buzz sooner.
Also Google has announced that it will continuously update Buzz with new features (which is a known thing already)
