It’s natural that when you hear about a brand new Google app — especially one that’s obviously designed to confront Twitter and/or Facebook — the first thing you want to do is try it out. So when I heard about Google Buzz, I immediately ran to my Gmail account to see if I had access. As it turned out, I didn’t — but by going to the mobile Web version, I found that I could check it out on my Android smart phone.
It looks like it will be an interesting application. But those who use it need to be very aware of how much information they are releasing in public.
