After Bad Buzz, Google Retools

In response to users finding Google's new social-networking service Buzz a little too revealing, Google product manager Todd Jackson said changes would be made. Instead of automatically subscribing followers to their close Gmail contacts, Buzz would only "suggest" people that users may want to follow, but leave the choice to each individual user. Much like Facebook, the service is a sort of newsfeed where users can share postings and likewise comment on their contacts' blurbs. Google has been making adjustments since Tuesday, with this latest change being the most significant. On a Saturday blog post, Jackson admitted the changes were "clearly not enough."
