I already use Gmail, Blogger, Picasa, Google Analytics, Google Checkout, Google Docs, Google Maps, and Gchat. That's a lot of Google, haha. The last thing I need to do is add one more to the list, but sadly, I will. Google recently introduced a new feature to Gmail that allows users to share things with their friends in a format similar to status updates. The thing that sets Buzz apart from others is that it's an add-so service, not a new start-up. This means that Buzz theoretically already has a large captive audience. You can read about Google's entrance into social media on their site here.
