Making Google Buzz Work For You – Two Simple Tips

google buzzGoogle Buzz has gotten mixed reviews here at AG, but with Google as big as it is, Buzz isn’t going away any time soon, so let’s dive into how to make it useful.

First, if you’re on the go, you can take pictures or send notes to and they’ll be attachments to an email. According to Google, “you can choose who sees posts you email will appear along with the subject line of your message. You can choose who can see posts you email into Buzz from the connected sites menu.”

This could be great for sharing pics of an open house or maybe a neighborhood association meeting or a ground breaking in the area. If you’re connected with your clients on Google Buzz, they too can weigh in and converse similarly to Facebook status updates.

Secondly, every Buzz entry has a permalink so you can share it with others (although they must have permission to see it). In the upper right hand of an entry, click the down arrow and click “link to this post.”

If you’re doing research by asking questions on Buzz, you’re sharing a listing and want to show your client, a permalink could be useful, don’t you think?
