Most people I know are using Google products to do just about everything else. If I can eliminate Facebook from the list of things I need to update it would be fantastic. I hate their interface but have to use it. Hell, Google launching the thing will be enough for me to abandon Facebook. Perhaps it will become a wasteland of business/artist "Fan Pages"... Or perhaps Facebook will sell the thing after its too late After reading the Wired.com piece it seems clear they have a very good handle on why BUZZ didn't work
Another twist is that people in your circles don’t have to be members of Google’s social net. If Aunt Mary refuses to opt in, you can include her anyway, and she can still get the pictures you post to the circle via e-mail.
Simple but still a great idea
