Google Buzz Buzzes off

Hey, come close. Remember when we all fell over ourselves to get Google Buzz invites? Remember when we all thought it would knock Facebook to one side? Yeah…. that didn’t happen..

In a few weeks we’ll shut down Google Buzz and the Buzz API, and focus instead on Google+. While people obviously won’t be able to create new posts after that, they will be able to view their existing content on their Google Profile, and download it using Google Takeout.

Time to put my “Sex In The City” voice-over on… “..and just like that, Google Buzz was gone.
