Google Buzz Dead? Say It Ain't So

By  

Google Buzz, the poor relation of Google Plus seems to be dead right now. At least it is returning a 404 Not Found error when I tried to add a new URL.

Google has been making a lot of changes over the past few months, trying to catch up to Facebook. Google Plus is the result and we've been experimenting with it for a while. Still I didn't expect they would kill Google Buzz without some type of announcement, but maybe I missed seeing it.

Google seems to love failure - they've had quite a few failures - and failing fast seems to be their favorite pasttime. Google Buzz never seemed to really do anything for us, but we've persevered with it, hoping that our friends would pick it up and help make it work, but sadly, it has been pretty much useless as far as generating buzz.

Is Google Buzz Dead?
When I just tried to add a new story to my buzz, I got the dreaded 404 error shown in the graphic here.

Well I guess nothing is permanent.

It could be the name Buzz is doomed to fail. Yahoo Buzz, that we and other friends put so much time into, didn't make it either, and it was unceremoniously dumped one day.

Here today and gone tomorrow, like so many other experiments that seemed like a good idea at the time.

What do you think about Google Buzz? Did it do anything for you? Anything at all, other than suck up time?
