Google Buzz is shutting Down

| Saturday, May 25, 2013 | |

Google announced the closure of its Google Buzz (a social networking, micro blogging) service in October 2011. Google will take final step towards shutting down Buzz on and after 17th of July 2013.

A backup copy of entire Buzz account will automatically get saved on Google Drive. But space consumed will not be charged against Google Drive storage.

Backup can also be taken using Google Takeout, a service to take backups of all or any selected Google service. 

What data will be backed up?

  1. The first type of file will be private, only accessible to you, containing a snapshot of the Google Buzz public and private posts that you authored.
  2. The second type of file will contain a copy of only your Google Buzz public posts. By default it will be viewable by anyone with the link and may appear in search results and on your Google Profile (if you've linked to your Buzz posts). Note, any existing links to your Google Buzz content will redirect users to this file.
  3. Any comments that you made on other users' posts will only be saved to those users' files and not to yours. Once the change described in this email is final, only that user will be able to change the sharing settings of those files. This means that if you have commented on another author's private post, that author could choose to make that post and its comments public. If you would like to avoid that possibility, delete all your Buzz content now.
  4. The new Google Drive files will only contain comments from users who previously enabled Google Buzz, and the files will not contain comments that were deleted prior to moving the data to your Google Drive.
