Google Buzz: become more social using Gmail

GOOGLE is always making its loyal customers busy by introducing new services and updates. Just few days ago on 9 February GOOGLE comes up with its new Social service named “Google Buzz”. After getting connected the first thing comes in my mind is that it is just a short version of GOOGLE Wave. You can post your shouts like we do on Twitter which will be visible to your followers from current email contacts and it gives you options to follow more people according to your interest.

Interesting part is you can connect your Twitter, Picasa, Flicker and Google Reader directly with BUZZ. It insures more social visibility of your personal and professional status. Moreover it will add your recent activities right on your Google Profile. Google already open Buzz API for developers and we already do have some references by which we can be more influenced using this new Buzz!!!
