Google Buzz Impresses ME

I've been reading a lot of negative buzz about Google's new service, Buzz. People are calling this Google's attempt at social media trying to compete with Facebook and Twitter. WTF?! Buzz looks NOTHING like either one of those social sites. Adding GPS into the mix was a game changer as has evolved into social networking sites like Foursquare and Loopt that are GPS focussed. Google maps is GOOGLE MAPS. I think they will be able to find ways to use that to their advantage in the mobile arena. You don't need to know the person to ask them about a restaurant that they are eating at but would just like to see their opinion. There is an enormous demand for this. People don't need to be friends someone to find a review or opinion useful. Anybody who compares Buzz to Facebook or Twitter is misguided.
