Google Buzz or Twitter?
Many people deliberate whether Google Buzz is worth the effort of using, but I believe it is and there is a few good reasons for this as I will explain below. Twitter has always been the most used micro blogging system since it was rolled out, but what is the difference between Twiiter and Google Buzz?
With Twitter you create an account follow people and people follow you back, that are in the same Niche as you. When you post your updates then the people that follow you see it on their Twitter News Feed page (their default Twitter Home Page). You can also create lists now and categorise the people you follow into these lists. And of course even people that do not follow you can see your posts. If you lucky and the information you have posted is something someone else finds interesting enough, you will get a ReTweet of your post and all the followers following the person that retweeted your post will also see it and might just follow you now.
Google Buzz is different in the sense that it is like tweeting and blogging. Twitter is great for posting links, but Google Buzz is great for group discussions and when it comes to a overall expression medium with no limitations.Blogging is great, but it takes a lot of extra time to ensure your permalinks are right and SEO has been done as it should, now if you do not have people subscribed to your blog then only after it maybe gets indexed in Google and someone searches for a term your post is relevant to, will your post actually be seen.
Now where Google Buzz takes the lead, is when you blog directly from your Google Buzz account, all people that are befriended with you and follow you see this immediately and your Buzz gets added to Google Search. So this means you get the best of both tweeting and blogging, all in one.
