Buzz OFF


Now Google has launched “Buzz”, a competitor to Facebook.  No thanks.  Not interested.  “Following” me?  I’m going nowhere.  I don’t know if I go as far as this guy in my opposition to it, though he does make some very interesting points (you should read what he has to say before proceeding with Buzz). I signed up for Twitter awhile back; posted about five Tweets, and decided I didn’t have time for that either (plus, with all due respect to avid Tweeters, it strikes me as being at least for a lot of folks all about indulging their narcissistic tendencies, though I wouldn’t tar every Tweeter with that brush).  I tried to find out how to unTwitter, but it seemed more hassle than it was worth, so I’m just treating it with willful neglect at this point.  Occasionally I’ll get a notification that someone else is following me.  As with Buzz, I’m going nowhere.

For me, it’s just a matter of one more thing I do not need to add to my online life.  What I need to be thinking about is what to subtract, frankly, not what other way I can clutter my time up with something else.  I’m on Facebook.  I like Facebook.  I don’t need anything else, even if Google tells me Buzz is better.  I just don’t care…
