Ever since the announcement of Google Buzz, I was anticipating an iPhone specific app to emerge onto the scene. That’s what precisely has occurred. Enter Buzzie: the first Google Buzz app for iPhone. The app is available for download from Apple’s App Store for both iPhone and iPod Touch owners.
Very recently, Google Buzz made its entry into the saturated and competitive social network domain. Ever since its entrance, the social version of Gmail has being buzzed mainly for the wrong reasons with people expressing their dissatisfaction mainly because of the privacy concerns it brings. But do you think that’s the only issue facing the search engine giant’s answer to Facebook and Twitter? A big No. A list of the 10 most wanted fixes for Google Buzz has been made available which you can see after the jump.
If you thought that social network was the only area in which Facebook would put up an impressive show, then think again. Compete report reveals Facebook as a major player when it comes to directing traffic to web portals like Microsoft, AOL and Yahoo. In becoming a leading traffic provider, it has left Google behind. Now we know why Google launched Google Buzz as its competitor. Not only that, Facebook recently became the third most visited website and has only Google and Microsoft to beat which is another reason for Google to get worried and be more innovative socially.
Well Well Well, Google does have something else buzzing on their mind besides Google Buzz. You do know that Gmail has its own Labs where Google tries new features for Gmail. Here is something you don’t know and you need to add it to your dictionary – Google has rolled out a Labs feature for Google Maps and is calling Google Maps Labs. Currently it has nine new features waiting for your trial. Features listed after the jump.
Google has unveiled some interesting and mind blowing statistics about the recently launched Google Buzz. The social version of Gmail which is only 2 days old has already been a source of 9 million posts and comments. Its performance on the mobile front is also impressive and appealing. Around 200 posts are being made every single minute from mobile phone users around the world. Also a few changes of minor nature have been rolled out based on the feedback and criticism the search giant received. More on the changes after the jump.

Well well well, it turns out that Google Buzz wasn’t the only social announcement in store for us today and rightly so.

In our previous post of a quick tour of Google Buzz, we informed you that Google Buzz is available for mobile users as well. There is more to it.

As expected Google announced Google Buzz. Yes, the social version of Gmail has arrived. Based on my initial impression, I wished Google never introduced it. But that’s not final statement. It has a few social elements to it but I won’t term it as a complete social experience. How can it be complete when it doesn’t include Facebook, the most popular social network with more than 400 million active users. Anyhow here a couple of videos that will get you going with the so called social component of Gmail in no time.
