Keep an eye out on Google Buzz today – a confirmation of your privacy settings will be rolling out. And if you haven’t been using Google Wave because you were frustrated you couldn’t get notifications, well, now you can. Oh, you say you’ve already lost interest? I agree. Because of Google’s tardiness with Wave updates, I completely removed Wave from my daily routine. The two Google products have caused quite a bit of chatter, as users weren’t shy to share their disappointment about the missing options in Buzz and Wave. Now after months of waiting, Google has implemented two of users’ biggest wishes: a confirmation of Buzz privacy and notifications for Wave. But at this point, do we care?

So you’ve probably heard of Google Buzz by now, and probably already made your decision on loving it or hating it, but what you might not be so familiar with is Google Buzz for mobile. In case you aren’t connected enough already, you can keep up with your Twitter, Facebook, and now your Google Buzz account while away from your computer. You can use it just as you would the original Google Buzz, allowing you to post and keep up with your friends’ buzz posts while you are on the run.
One awesome feature of Google Buzz for mobile is that it will identify places near your current location. You can choose a place, attach as a location tag within your buzz post, or see what other buzzers have said about it.

Whether you like Google Buzz or not, it seems like it may be around for a while (relatively speaking – keep in mind the ebb and flow of social services). If you’re part of a marketing team or just like staying on the cutting edge, I’d recommend to create a Google Buzz profile for your company.
A few reasons why:
- Your customers may not know the name of your company’s VP or CEO, but might know your brand name. What happens if they search for your company on Buzz and it’s nowhere to be found? Missed opportunity.
- Once you’ve set up the account with your corporate Twitter, Flickr, Google Reader, Facebook (a recent addition), etc. you can choose to set it and forget it, or actually put it to use for forums and conversations with your community.
- Taking the 5 minutes to make the profile claims your brand name on Buzz, which eliminates the headaches of brandjacking.
- Also, Radian6 and Viralheat have already made moves to incorporate Buzz into their platforms. Other services may soon feel the pressure to do the same. Monitoring capabilities are what those social media specialists/scientists/strategist/community managers/experts/gurus want, right?
