Goodbye Google Buzz

After shutting down the Google Labs, Google announced last Friday that they will also shutting down Google Buzz and Buzz API.

The statement includes,

“In a few weeks we’ll shut down Google Buzz and the Buzz API, and focus instead on Google+,” Bradley Horowitz, Google’s vice president of product, wrote on The Official Google Blog. “While people obviously won’t be able to create new posts after that, they will be able to view their existing content on their Google Profile, and download it using Google Takeout.”

As we remember, Google Buzz are integrated with our GMAIL account. Google Buzz was launched last February 2010. Google Buzz is a new way to start conversations about the things you find interesting. Google Labs was also shut down last July this year 2011.

In advance,Google will also shut down Code Search this coming January 15, 2012 and other social media offerings, including the Twitter-like Jaiku - which will also be discontinued on that date — and iGoogle’s social features. 

Google Users are very sad if the Google Buzz will shut down. As a prove, RIP GOOGLE PLUS is trending worldwide on Twitter.

Goodbye Google Buzz! Thanks for the 1 year sharing your features.
