Google Buzz, I tried it, and I was overwhelmed with people from China, Taiwan and other countries wanting to follow me. If I spoke Mandarin it might make sense, since it appears I have trouble with English sometimes maybe not so much. I was never bum rushed like that on twitter, but it was enough to make me stop. Buzz off.
Chris Penn wrote about how Brilliant Google Buzz is. I agree that less noise and better exchanges are great, but I thought friend feed was lots like that. Buzz seemed like friend feed light to me, or friend feed with fewer share channels. While I like friend feed lots, I don’t really think I need two of them. I also don’t relish the need to distract myself any further on a daily basis. Less being more of course.
If you need to turn off your buzz also see the CNET blog post below
