Google Buzz Gets New Privacy Controls
SOCIAL NETWORKINGApril 6, 2010
Google has created new privacy controls for its Buzz social networking service, MediaPost News reports. The new privacy setting, which went into effect on Monday, includes a confirmation screen requiring users to confirm their privacy settings when they log onto Buzz, the report states. The new privacy controls include approving a list of subscribers to users' Buzz feeds. Admitting the company "didn't get everything right" when Buzz was launched in February, Google Product Manager Todd Jackson notes that Google has moved "as fast as possible" to improve it and protect the privacy of its users.
