TechCrunch noticed the other day that Google Buzz is kind of dead. Google botched this in a big way. Why and how?
First of all, shoving it on our throats. Big mistake. People were searching like crazy for ways of removing this bitch from their mail account. What happened to the invite? It worked on gmail and it worked on wave. Google wanted to crush twitter in a second. Didn’t quite work, did it?
Second, sharing a lot of stuff right off the bat. Like Facebook does. People are not ok with that. Nobody likes to have their data shared with everyone without their consent. That is why privacy exists.
I don’t know anybody that uses Google Buzz. Do you?
