Google Buzz - Will it really buzz

Google Products have been known to have been launched with an unprecedented hype, and that is ever since Google mail made its way into our lives. Whether it be a Beta software of a software that is commercially released, Google wins half the battle just with the media hype and importance that is given to the product and the company.

It is a refreshing change when a Google product is released without much fanfare, and with few people even knowing it, until they got a now standard clear and crisp invite to use Google Buzz. So, what is Google Buzz?

Google Buzz is supposedly a Facebook killer, and an Orkut alternative, which allows a person to sign onto a service using their Gmail account. The person can then follow people who they have shared their email addresses with, basically people who are on their network.

Once this is done, the user will get any status updates or a report of any activity that anybody on their network takes up.  The activities are shown through a simple two or three line message that is presented on the Buzz profile page. The users can then comment, or express that they have liked the activity.

Google Buzz is in the beta stage and it is quite visible from the site, with very limited services and features, but with Google, everyone knows that they start small and end up big.
