So what exactly is Google Buzz?
Used on a PC or mobile, Buzz reminds us of an RSS combined with all of your social networking—all within the existing Gmail and Google.com infrastructure.
Buzz's five key features include:
• Automatic friends lists (friends are added automatically who you have emailed on Gmail)
• "Rich fast sharing" combines sources like Picasa and Twitter into a single feed, and it includes full-sized photo browsing
• Public and private sharing (swap between family and friends)
• Inbox integration (instead of emailing you with updates, like Facebook might, Buzz features emails that update dynamically with all Buzz thread content, like the photo viewer we mentioned above)
• "Recommended Buzz" puts friend-of-friend content into your stream, even if you're not acquainted. Recommendations learn over time with your feedback.

Considering that I have only opened Buzz twice since it launched I am not a big fan. I just don't use it. Also, I like to keep my e-mail private and I feel Buzz intrudes upon my privacy by being a part of gmail.
Actually today, I was in a phone call with two Search firms, one SEO and the other does SEM. I asked everyone on the call if they used Buzz and we all said no. So if these are search professionals who are more likely to use Buzz, then I wonder who will.
