Google has introduced a social networking feature, called Google Buzz, in its email service Gmail. The new feature allows users to share messages, web links and photos with friends and colleagues within Gmail. The company has described Google Buzz as a new way to start conversations about the things one finds interesting.

“If you think about it, there has always been a big social network underlying Gmail,” Todd Jackson, product manager, Gmail and Google Buzz, has said. “Buzz brings this network to the surface by automatically setting you up to follow the people you email and chat with the most. We focused on building an easy-to-use sharing experience that richly integrates photos, videos and links, and makes it easy to share publicly or privately.”

Google Buzz also allows users to connect Flickr, Twitter and YouTube from Buzz in Gmail. “Our goal is to make Buzz a fully open and distributed platform for conversations,” Todd Jackson explains. “We are building on a suite of open protocols to create a complete read/write developer API, and we invite developers to join us on Google Code to see what is available today and to learn more about how to participate.”
