Google Buzz

Its called Buzz and it is Google's new social networking site designed to compete directly Facebook and MySpace. I've played with Buzz and like it. The problem is none of my computer friends are using it yet so there is little to attract me to it right now.
What I like the most about Buzz is its easy integrations with other google tools like gmail and YouTube.

Google Buzz is a new way to start conversations about the things you find interesting. It's built right into Gmail, so you don't have to peck out an entirely new set of friends from scratch — it just works. If you think about it, there's always been a big social network underlying Gmail. Buzz brings this network to the surface by automatically setting you up to follow the people you email and chat with the most. We focused on building an easy-to-use sharing experience that richly integrates photos, videos and links, and makes it easy to share publicly or privately (so you don't have to use different tools to share with different audiences). Plus, Buzz integrates tightly with your existing Gmail inbox,
