Karma - Responsive bootstrapped webapp

Yesterday Google lanched there newest tool called Buzz. Google Buzz makes it possible to follow online activities of your friends on other websites within your Gmail account. Users can follow with Google Buzz, Twitter updates, blogger posts or Flickr pictures of there friends. For now it’s not possible to use Google Buzz to update services like Twitter, but Google says that they are working on that.

Users can set there Buzz messages to public or private, which is very useful because public messages will be displayed on your Google profile and these public messages will be index by Google, so if you dont want that, you can set the message to private.

Google says that i would be easy to share a message with just a certain person or persons.

Because the numbers of smart phone are growing, there’s also a mobile version of Buzz available for the Iphone and Andriod phones. Because the most smart phone are equipped with a GPS, you can use Buzz in combination with your mobile GPS to post where you are and see the Buzz updates of the users in you neighborhood.
