Well, Google has entered the social media fray with “Buzz”. It remains to be seen if Buzz will impact Facebook, or even Twitter. Nevertheless, it would be foolhardy to ignore anything with which Google is involved. A recent Mashable poll asked “Who would win in a fight: Facebook, Google Buzz or Twitter?” Not surprisingly, 47% of respondents voted for Facebook. There are after all 400 million Facebook users. Most interesting, 18% went for the infant Buzz and 26% Twitter. When you consider 9% said it was too close to call, Buzz may well give at least one of the heavyweights a “run for their money”! It’s just too soon to say.

No matter what the outcome, I recommend you create a Google Buzz account and decide for yourself. Let us know what you think of Buzz. Will it become one of your favorite social media platforms?
