If you are still uncertain on whether to use Google Buzz or not, I have compiled some Tips and Tricks on using and integrating Buzz with your other social networking sites.
1.Turn off Google buzz
First off, if you are a Gmail user who has no interest in using Google Buzz, Google has made it easy for you to turn Google Buzz off right on the bottom of your Gmail account page. At the bottom of the web page click the link that says “turn off Buzz” and Google Buzz will be removed from your Gmail account.
2.Remove Buzz messages from Your Gmail Inbox
Buzz automatically adds new Buzz messages to your inbox, along with all the other email subscriptions hitting your inbox daily – which is one of the chief complaints about Google Buzz.
First, at the top of the screen, right next to the search box, click the link titled “create a filter”. Second, the filter tool contains a text box identifiable by “has words” where you would enter the word “buzz”. Third, you will receive a warning when you click “Next Step” saying that the filter search you started will not work because it needs more information, but I have tested that theory and found that it does work for Buzz messages, so you can click OK. Fourth, make sure the box next to “Skip the Inbox” is checked and click on the “Create Filter” link.
3.You Can Tweet and Buzz
Why wouldn’t your Twitter friends want to have your Buzz links, too? Google Reader is already connected via Twitterfeed for you to send things to your Twitter account, but that’s not the only way to share. The Shared Items section on Google Reader allows you to grab the Atom feed link and past it directly into Twitterfeed. Once you press the “go” button, Twitter can then sync the two accounts together.
4.Using text markup language in Google Buzz
As long as you are using simple text markup language, Google Buzz will be able to recognize it. So, you can Buzz with style as you highlight words that you want to stand out in italics, bold, or strikethrough font options. How you use it:
The keystroke code for making text bold is surrounding the word or phrase with an asterisk.
*word* = word
Underscores surrounding the text tells Buzz that the word(s) should be italicized.
_word_ = word
If you want to strike out the text, then putting dashes at either end is the command used by Buzz.
-word- = word(strikethrough)
