Buzz Tips From Google

After Launched of Buzz Google scrambled to implement updates (twice) to deal with serious privacy bugs. Now that the dust has settled they are out with a short list of tips to improve your use and experience.

"1. Format your posts. When posting in Buzz, you can format text just as you can in Gmail chat: *bold*, _italics_, or -strikethrough- all work.
2. View a summary of your own Buzz activity at
3. Use an @reply to send a post directly to someone's inbox. If you want to make sure one of your friends sees a certain Buzz post, you can direct it to their inbox with an @reply. Type the "@" symbol followed by the first few letters of their name, and select their email address from the list.
4. Try keyboard shortcuts to fly through buzz. Turn on keyboard shortcuts from Settings
5. Mute posts so they don't get sent to your inbox. Comments on your posts and comments after your comments send buzz directly to your inbox. If you don't want a lively conversation to keep appearing in your inbox as people reply to it, you can mute it. Click the arrow in the corner of a buzz post and select "Mute this post."
