Sorry Bird, I’m breaking up with you for Buzz

Well, the inevitable has happened – this hard working girl has decided to leave the Bird for Buzz once and for all!

After a committed relationship with the Bird for the last year, I am left feeling neglected, ignored and very unloved. You see, Bird tends to be a little on the “flighty” side, often being short with me, sending me lots of mixed messages and empty promises.

On the other hand, Buzz has a lot to offer me including stability, personality and plenty of fun! While Bird is not giving me satisfaction, I have already enjoyed my time with Buzz and am meeting lots of great new people. Buzz has a huge network of friends I can talk to all in one place, instead of having to weed through people I haven’t anything in commom with in Bird’s world.

It was only a matter of time before I would see that Buzz has so much more to offer me, so I am breaking up with Bird for good this week!

What on earth am I talking about?

No, I haven’t decided to run off and start dating again. Instead I am spending less time reading through sales pitches on Twitter and more time actually networking with real people on Google Buzz!

What do I like about Google Buzz so much?

  • Easy to use format that locates all my networks automatically and sends them invitations – instead of having to send them individually
  • Similar posting features as Facebook, where I am a regular as well
  • Ability to include links to my websites, blogs, pictures, videos and promos to the public to make it easy to share
  • Quick reviews of my favorite friends’ social networks to find people who matter in my industry or interests
  • Connections to other social media sites with one click
  • Actual responses from others when I post something new (yeah!)
  • Live feeds that update fast and give me the scoop on new ideas first  

The list literally could go on and on for miles, but so far I am really impressed with the way Google Buzz works! I hope that you get a chance to check it out for yourself soon and see what all the hype is about.

Sorry to ruffle some feathers folks, but I think I have found a new roost!
