Today, Google Buzzes

Today Google unveiled a new addition to its already growing platform of internet applications: Google Buzz. The app, (which is added within your G-Mail account) is set to take on the likes of Twitter and Facebook status updates with a slightly more sophisticated edge. Some of the key features differentiating it from the other services include:

• Automatic friends lists (friends are added automatically who you have emailed on Gmail)
• “Rich fast sharing” which combines sources like Picasa and Twitter into a single feed, it also includes full-sized photo browsing
• Public and private sharing (Allowing you to swap between family and friends)
• Inbox integration (instead of emailing you with updates like Facebook, Buzz features emails that update immediately with all Buzz thread content, like the photo viewer 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.

The app is already available and should be showing up right below where it says “Inbox” in your G-Mail account. Of course, it also works on cell phones so if you’re an iPhone user, look for it in the browser.
