Join the Conversation Around Google Buzz

This morning we announced Google Buzz, a new way to share updates, photos, videos and more, and start conversations about the things you find interesting.

We'd like to take this opportunity to invite developers to join us as we prepare the Google Buzz API for public launch. Our goal is to help create a more social web for everyone, so our plan for the Buzz API is a bit unconventional: we'd like to finalize this work out in the open, and we ask for your participation. By building the Google Buzz API exclusively around freely available and open protocols rather than by inventing new proprietary technologies, we believe that we can work together to build a foundation for generations of sites to come. We're ready to open the doors and share what we've been working on, and we'd like for you to join us in reaching this goal.

Please visit the Buzz API site on Google Code, subscribe to the Social Web Blog, and most importantly, join us on the Buzz API mailing list.

We'll have advanced sessions on Buzz APIs at Google I/O, our annual developer conference in May. To learn more about and register for I/O, visit code.google.com/io.

Update: Fixed typo in the first sentence.

  2. Can Blogger enable thumbs-up/down for comments so we can help identify spam like this? Maybe blogger comments could be integrated with Buzz directly.

  4. I think one of the ways that Google can really "take on" Facebook would be to improve on their policies around use and ownership of uploaded material, and reduce the number of ads that are increasingly forced on users.

  5. So, us paying customers with google apps accounts are left high and dry again just as we have no Picassa, we have no Buzz. All puns intended. Seriously Google, when will apps users (your paying customers) get the good stuff? O and I can't even log in and comment here with my apps account. Why are we second class citizens, really third class because not only are we treated like red headed step children we pay for the privilege.
