Gmail is no more something that you are just using for sending emails and chatting.Gmail is going to be ‘Social’.Succes of social media particularly Twitter make Google to introduce Google Buzz.
In layman language Google buzz is simply the incorporation of Twitter inside Gmail.Your Status messages would be the ‘tweets’ in Google Buzz.You can follow the people you email and chat most using Google Buzz.’Sharing ‘ is the cornerstone of Google Buzz.Sharing of Status messages,videos,links and photos.You would have control over your sharing buzz.If you want to share with few and dont want to share with other people you have choice.

Users will start seeing in few days that their Gmail account is being ‘buzzized’ .According to Google it is not a closed system.It is open for everybody.(but its ironical that it is closed in Gmail).Google has admitted that they are influenced by the openness of Flickr and Twitter so it is not a closed system.It is open for developers.
User can connect to Flickr and Twitter (but not with Facebook).

When you will use Google buzz in mobiles it can be used to locate the user.
” On your phone, Google Buzz is much more than just a small screen version of the desktop experience. Mobile devices add an important component to sharing: location. Posts tagged with geographical information have an extra dimension of context — the answer to the question “where were you when you shared this?” can communicate so much. And when viewed in aggregate, the posts about a particular location can paint an extremely rich picture of that place. Check out the Mobile Blog for more info about all of the ways to use Buzz on your phone, from a new mobile web app to a Buzz layer in Google Maps for mobile.”
