Last week Google announced a new product called Buzz.

There's been a lot of talk about what it is and what social network it's designed to "kill" and so on. I'm going to take a look at what this product is, how it works and what you might want to do with it. This tool is very new so take this as an early-adopters-only/beta-beta-beat reviews.

At first blush, Google Buzz looks just like Twitter. It's a text box for you to enter in bits of information, links, etc. This has led lots of people to think it's a "Twitter killer." That sort of conversation is probably more distraction and noise than it is useful. Let's dig into it a little.
