Google Buzz…whats it all about?

I’m not the most tech savvy out there and Google Buzz popped up on my Gmail today…so whats it about you say?

Well, I have no idea, but luckily some people out there do and it seems pretty cool

Supposedly, the thing about Buzz is that it adjusts what posts you see, based on where you are, based on the GPS coordinates of the phone you just logged in on.

“And that’s where your smartphone comes in. If you log onto Google Buzz, the company will find you via your GPS, translate that from lat-long coordinates into English , “I’m outside Waldorf-Astoria,” and use that for all sorts of services. Your friends can now see where you are and hook up for a chance meeting (one of the attractions of services like Foursquare). If you’re looking for a good nearby restaurant, Google Buzz will let you scan all the public posts about establishments in your area. You can even navigate this visually, placing yourself on Google Maps and scanning a universe of public comments about anything posted in your immediate vicinity.”
