Too open, too hard to lock down private info

As an adult, I had issues with privacy on Google Buzz. If I had a hard time finding the information to make my profile secure, I don't think most kids are savvy enough to understand the privacy policy and set user controls to protect themselves. Horrible product from Google.

Teens only

Privacy, or the lack of, make Google Buzz a definite "no" for children under the age of 13. Parents need to be aware of what their children post on the internet - especially when it comes to sharing their personal information.

Not another ''social'' networking website!

Privacy and safety are concerns in all social networking websites, but this one is for adults only.

Block people you don't know.

I have google buzz, and I like it, there are a lot of great things about it. One thing I did want to point out though, is that is someone starts to follow you that you don't know, autimatically block them.
