Will Google Buzz be the Next Twitter?

March 2, 2010

I doubt it.

Update: Nope, It looks like a loser, there isn’t any buzz nor is there Google wave and I doubt that Google+ will make it either.

In the caveman days by technology standards, something would be the buzz and a behemoth like Microsoft would swoop in with a copy and take over the market.  Word/Wordperfect and Netscape/IE come to mind.

Anymore, the next buzz could only last months before the next buzz comes around.

Twitter is too established.  So much so that the next big thing is likely to overtake it, not a me too of the same thing.  If Buzz is as successful as Google Wave, it’s already DOA.  It’s too bad that Twitter has censored certain groups because of political bias and moral casualness and relativity.  They have become an untrustworthy platform.

Google’s problem is that it has a limited audience, Gmail users.  It’s big, but not big in comparison to the the marketplace worldwide.  Google has said do no evil, but their Chairman continually does so and interferes with political bias.  With their meddling worldwide and privacy invasion, they violate the do no evil so consistently and constantly that they can’t be trusted.

The only possibility is perhaps the advertising model, but if you are like me, I hate watching an ad when I’m trying get to a video.  That’s as annoying as popup’s and spam.

Twitter may have already have an advertising model.

As for me, I’m already looking for the next new grass roots product that isn’t overtaken by the masses.  That way the message gets through easier without the clutter and noise.  And there are a lot of annoying people on Twitter, almost as annoying as Twitter’s social policy stance.
