Google Might Be Buzzed


Ashton Kutcher, September 2008

Is anybody honestly excited with Google Buzz?  After rumors that Google was in negotiations to acquire Twitter it is obvious that the technology giant was unable to strike a deal.  Whats more interesting is watching Google roll out yet another social aggregator clogging up the social space.  Well thank you very much oh mighty Google but the service I have been using for the past two years works perfectly!  Perhaps you have heard of it, its called TWITTER.

I wonder if Ashton Kutcher plans on being the first with a million followers on Google Buzz? ;-)  My personal feeling is that Google Buzz will Buzz Out.  You have heard it said that if a tree falls in the woods and there is nobody there to hear it, then it didn't make a sound.  This is how I see Google Buzz fading into obscurity because nobody is paying attention.  Why? SIMPLE, We already have some very popular aggregators that serve their purpose, the other aforementioned service is called FACEBOOK, perhaps you have heard of it as well.

What drives social media is innovation and unfortunately Google Buzz doesn't bring anything new to the table.  Personally I think somebody was buzzed when they decided to roll it out.

Leave a comment with your thoughts ;-)
