Will Google Buzz replace Twitter as a money maker?

This week, the blogs are “abuzz” about Google Buzz, the search engine giant’s latest attempt to get a piece of the social media action.

Google Buzz “lives” inside Gmail, supposedly to have a ready-made source of contacts to get you started.

I’ve heard Google Buzz described as being a bit like FriendFeed, and that’s pretty accurate. As Tech Crunch put it:

“Buzz is a stream of status updates, pictures, links, and videos from your friends. You can ‘like’ these items and you can comment on them. And if you use Flickr, Picasa, Google Reader, or Twitter, you can also automatically have those items imported into your stream. And Buzz will recommend items you might like based on your friends’ activity.”

Personally, I can’t get into Buzz, any more than I got into Google Wave. When I first got a Wave account, I went on Twitter and asked if anyone could clue me in on what exactly I was supposed to “do” with it.

All the replies I got were from people who were just as confused as I was!

Of course, that’s how I felt about Twitter at first, too. But unlike Twitter, Google Buzz is too busy. There is too much going on. We tend to want our lives made simpler, not more complicated.

Needless to say, there’s no indication of any way you can make money with Google Buzz yet, like you can with Twitter. The thing is too new.

But if you’re interested in making money online, keep an eye on Google Wave and Buzz; if they catch on, you can bet the money making opportunities will crop up.

For now, stick with making money through Twitter – following the advice we give you at ProTwit!

    Google Wave is collaboration software. Its for software developers and programmers. I never could figure out why they attached social networking to a professional app. I never used it like I never use anything belonging to google because I do not trust them.
