    Google Buzz is a social networking and messaging tool from Google, designed to integrate into the company's web-based email program, Gmail. Users can share links, photos, videos, status messages and comments organized in "conversations" and visible in the user's inbox. Buzz allows users to choose to share publicly with the world or privately to a group of friends each time they post. Buzz can be tied to Picasa, Flickr, Google Reader, YouTube, Blogger, and Twitter, meaning what the user does in Buzz can show up in these other social media formats if he/she desires. The creation of Buzz clearly is Google's bid to compete with social networking websites such as Facebook and microblogging services such as Twitter. Sams Teach Yourself Google Buzz in 10 Minutes will be the first book on Google Buzz. The STY in 10-minute format provides just the right amount of coverage for savvy users. It offers straightforward, practical answers for fast results. By working through the 10-minute lessons, readers learn everything they need to know to quickly and easily get up to speed with Google Buzz.

    Book News Annotation:

    Ten short lessons introduce Google's new social networking feature and explain how to post text and photos on Buzz, follow friends, start a chat session, adjust settings, organize Gmail, and edit a Google profile. B&w screenshots demonstrate the options for connecting Buzz to Flickr, Twitter, Google Reader, and Picasa. Annotation ©2011 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
