Google Buzz - Gmail adds social network functionality [VIDEOS]

Google have launched Google Buzz - effectively turning Gmail into a social networking platform.

According to the BBC there are 170 million regular Gmail users so this new Google Buzz service could turn into a big rival for Facebook, Twitter and the other status update / info sharing social platforms. Google Buzz supports public and private messaging, is an 'open' platform, has a slick mobile application for Android phones and is integrated with existing social sites and Google profiles.

Google Buzz is gradually being rolled out over the next few days and as soon as it is active on my Gmail I will post some screenshots / analysis - so I'm hoping that it is easier to use than Google Wave!

In the meantime, Google explain more on the Official Google Blog here, and the Google Buzz YouTube videos below:
