Google introduces Buzz social networking tool

Google has just announced Google Buzz, a new social networking tool built into its Gmail web-based e-mail service. Buzz fills a similar niche as Twitter or Facebook, allowing you to share status messages and media with others. If you’ve used FriendFeed, Buzz may look familiar to you. Buzz is also optimized to work well with mobile devices–in particular, Android phones and iPhones. Check out a demonstration in the video below.

If you’ve got a Gmail account, sign in now to see if Buzz has been activated for you.
