Update Buzz via Email

One of the main thing that I noticed in Buzz’s is that it’s Gmail integration is that it lets you update your Buzz via email.Email your post to buzz@gmail.com from your Gmail / Google Mail account. There’s no 140-character limit either, your post can be as long as you like.You can even send in attachments!

Deliver interesting posts to  your inbox

Sometimes you’re really interested in a  certain conversation and would like to get it delivered to your inbox. You used to have to comment on a post in order to  get updates sent to your inbox. Now, you can set the post to be delivered to your inbox regardless of whether or not you’ve participated. Click the down-arrowin the upperright-handcorner of a post, and seleandct “Deliver to my Inbox.”

Disable comments.

If a  conversation you’ve started has run its course, you can opt to prevent further comments. For example, we just closed comments on this post soliciting questions for our SXSW panel since the talk happened over a month ago.

Favicons for shared links.

When you share a link in Google Buzz, we now grab the favicon associated with that page so it’s easier than ever to see the source (in this case, Blogger).

Send direct messages to  your friend’s inbox

You can do it by using the “ @” symbol, When you enters the symbol, and after when you type a letter it automatically shows the email contact lists.If you’d like to send a private message to someone, type @ and use Gmail’s autocomplete feature to find the email address of your contact. After typing the message, make sure that the private option is selected, click on “Post to other groups” and create an empty group. You could call it “No one”, “Empty group” etc. Now you can send your message.
