Google Buzz is going away. Kudos to the folks at This Week in Google. I believe Leo Laporte or something on the show correctly predicted they’d end Buzz to make way for Google+. Farewell, Buzz! We didn’t get to know each other well, but we shared a few tweets when you asked if I wanted to connect my Twitter account.
“Google Buzz is going away, but your post are yours to keep.” That’s the title on the page of the Google support forum where you can go to view instructions on where you can see your old Buzz posts as well as download the existing ones using Google Takeout.
Thank you watching! Please let me know what you think about Google Buzz and Google+. What is the future of social media in general? Post your thoughts in comments below!
