Who's using it, and how are you using it?
I'm just a bit curious as to how others are doing with it since it has become available on my account.
Lastly... How integrated are you with it? Twitter, Flickr, Picassa, etc...
Do you fear it, or have you embraced it?

i have not used it at all, but i do not twit/ facebook/ etc. I am thinking about getting a picassa account though.

i don't use it. i saw one of my email addy's in my contact list use it. it's like facebook/twitter. i deactivated my facebook and it seems to fail on a social networking (or maybe with just my friends treating it more as a twitter). twitter i'm not too interested in and letting people know what's going on in my world.

so anyone in my google contacts that uses buzz, i just delete them.

I thought that contacts would not be visible?

I use it sometimes as practice - buzzed about grubbing at dennys working on high speed access for my community and posting random pics of my city.

BIG +1 for me here

I didn't even sign up for it and I could see my other gmail friends and their friends who I didn't know. That just pisses me off! I do not want my account visible by those I don't know so I removed it. I love my other Google stuff but Buzz just pissed me off.

I will have to look into removing it, is there a hidden get me outta here button?

Yeah, there's an opt-out section for Buzz. I think it is where the edit profile area is.

I use their search, calendar and gmail and that's enough, I turned Buzz off.

Here's how to turn it off:
