Thought Friendfeed Was Dead? Welcome to Google Buzz
Well today we learned that another company wants to be Friendfeed. I’d like to welcome you to Google Buzz.
I’ve been watching the live stream of the Google Buzz event and it looks and functions exactly like Friendfeed except that it’s inside Gmail versus a stand-alone Web application like Friendfeed was/is.
I can only hope that Google Buzz works as smoothly as Friendfeed does and I also hope that Google Buzz pushes out as much as they pull in.
Update: There’s an excellent Google Buzz discussion thread started by Robert Scoble on Friendfeed.
Update 2: During the Q&A session, someone asked about the comparison to Friendfeed and the Google employee (sorry don’t know the name) replied with, ”we dont look at competitors, we just build what our users want”.
Update 3: Many on the Friendfeed chat and several of the questions noted that Google Buzz looks and acts just like Facebook.
