Google Unveils Social Networking Feature

Googled unveiled a new social networking feature called Buzz on Tuesday; all Gmail users will be automatically signed up to share information with the 40 people they email the most. Buzz is designed to avoid the "noise" of other social networking sites, and will essentially add a news feed to Gmail that shows the information, photos, and videos that friends have posted. Features include a custom photo viewer, the option for information to be marked as private or public, the option for users to automatically follow people they correspond with and drop those they don't want to see, and updates posted in a user's inbox.
