How We’ve Decided to Use Buzz

Hey, RWW friends and fans! As some of you may have noticed, we’ve been tinkering around with our new team Buzz account today. We’ve decided to do something a little bit different with this network, and we really hope you’ll like it.

We know that a lot of you follow us on Twitter or are our Facebook fans, and sometimes the constant streams of blog posts and observations can be as impersonal as they are informative or interesting. Occasionally, you might also catch a duplicate update.

We’ve decided that the last thing we need to do with Buzz is use it to promote the same stream of blog content – we’re not that desperate, and we know you get that news elsewhere. Here’s how we’re using Google Buzz instead.

For conversations! Actual, honest-to-god, open discussions between the RWW team and you, our wonderful readers.

We’ll ask questions or give opinions there from time to time each day, and we do hope you’ll join us for some friendly debate and fresh perspectives in a real-time setting. We’ve certainly had fun with it, ourselves, already.

You can also choose to add our blog posts to your Google Buzz stream by choosing Buzz from the Add This widget at the bottom of each post. It looks like this:

But we won’t be cluttering up our own Buzz stream with bot-like aggregations and self-promotion. As we’ve said, if you want to get RWW news, there are many other platforms well-suited to that.

Join the ReadWriteWeb team on Buzz for real-time conversations about web technology and social media.

So, if you’d like to chat with us about any topic under the sun, just follow our new Buzz account and leave us a comment. We welcome all kinds of feedback, and you never know who will reply! We’re really looking forward to getting to you know as individuals in a more casual online environment.

Let us know what you think in the comments, or just pop over to the Buzz account and tell us all about it.
