What do you think the potential is of new Google Buzz for Mobile? Google's summary of Google Buzz for Mobile: "See what's going on nearby, post a message tagged with your location, and follow your friends on the go." http://www.google.com/intl/en/mobile/buzz/
Just seems to me that Google keeps trying to hop on the bandwagon of everything rather than stepping out and creating something new and great....like Google Wave it has potential but idk just not there i think social network stuff is already taken care of with Facebook and Twitter those really cover all the aspects of social networking....now everyone knows where everyone else is at all times lol....
But in saying that I will still be using and trying it out (once it starts working for me)
I tried the mobile version of Buzz last night and it wouldn't load. I've just gone into the Browser version for the first time and I can't see myself using it anyway.
I liked the Wave concept but once I got it found no reason to use it. Every conversation I have happens over AIM; I don't have any need to change.
So far, I feel the same about Buzz (Browser); I'll configure it but I don't see the point of using it. I'll be following the same people I follow in Twitter but I won't want to take time away from Twitter.
Google is making mistakes lately, it seems to me. They're going to lose credibility.
Edit: I've played quite a bit more with Buzz in a Browser and I can see more benefits. It will enable discussions in a whole new way, but I think they will be vulnerable to spammers and the mean-spirited.
Some of the privacy concerns are upsetting folks; the Google forums are full of furious people right now. It will be VERY interesting to see how this shapes up in the next week.
Well, Google DOES offer a lot in the way of integration. Since I am on the MobileMe bandwagon for another year here, I will let all this develop a little more before considering the switch. I am concerned that the level of integration with my iPhone wouldn't be there (ala Microsoft) when the smartphone wars well and truly heat up.
I've finally gotten Buzz for Mobile to run on my iPhone. I actually like the Mobile version better! It's not overwhelming; the conversations are collapsed by default so if I don't find myself drawn in by a particular comment I can just move right on by without being distracted by the comments.
It looks like Google is running or should I say up to something. What I can say is that, it seems that Google is serious of becoming the next Facebook. The new tool allows the users to share status updates, images and videos. I wonder if Google really paid Aardvark $50 million.

Thank you! I'm sorry, but I don't think Wave was ready to be released when it was and I have problems with the way Google launched Buzz. I used it for a day before I became completely overwhelmed by the numbers. I just don't think I need another social network right now.
I haven't tried the mobile version, but I don't see myself trying it out anytime soon. Well now I just feel grumpy because I don't like Wave or Buzz.
Wave should have been so much more than it was. It still has the Beta label on it but I don't think it's changed once since I finally got my invite.
Buzz is evolving and becoming a better tool. More people are using it for topics different than the ones they tweet about, and more people are removing their Twitter/FriendFeed streams from Buzz, which helps a ton.
Give it about three more weeks and by then it should be in very nice shape.
I am kind of confused about how you can use it. Everyone seems to say that google buzz is built in to gmail. I don't have a gmail account, but I do have a google account for google docs etc. However, when I am on my iphone and on the google mobile homepage. Forex Trading System
