Social Media Top 5 (1) Google Buzz Vomits on My Twitter Stream

(Social Media Top 5)

Buzz Kill?

To keep track of goings-on in the social media world, I use bookmarking services. For a long time I used Delicious, which made it easy to see and share wjhat I had saved. I did sometimes have difficulty accessing it via mobile. With my Android phone and use of GMail and Google Reader, I decided that using Google Buzz would make more sense.

I does work great. Buzz integrates with my GMail and Reader services easily, and sometimes discussions break out among friends who subscribe there. Also, I can set up sharing via Twitter. Great, right?

Well, one problem. Sometimes Buzz seems to save up my Buzz shared items and Tweets them out at once- instead of sharing them on Twitter as I mark them. Annoying. Obnoxious. Makes me look like a jerk.

This has only happened a couple of times but it’s enough to make me move back to Delicious. Maybe. If I get around to it.

Anyone else have problems with Buzz?
