Update on Product Ideas for Google Buzz

Sunday, March 14, 2010 | 12:30 PM

The Google Buzz team has been working hard to listen to your feedback from the Product Ideas for Google Buzz page and other sources on the web. One of the largest pieces of feedback we've received is that buzz in your inbox can get noisy. The Gmail and Buzz teams feel this too, and they've implemented new features based on your feedback to better help you control this-- settings to control what buzz goes to your inbox, explanations on why posts get sent to your inbox, and an easy-to-find "mute" button for buzz.

To learn more, visit the Official Gmail Blog.

And, don't forget to keep submitting your feedback and voting on the feedback from others in the official Product Ideas for Buzz page. We're listening, and we'll update you in the future if make future changes.

Do the ideas have to be so short as indicated to the left? I left a blog response recently and what I wrote was rather lengthy, there was no way to shorten it. Like the first blogger; joddar commented: Norton update? I did enjoy commenting but have not yet gone to see what (disgusting) responses I received on the signing of the Healthcare signing.

Sorry for this: your Product Ideas tool doesn't work for me (on IE8). The blue window opens then immediately closes itself.
Secondly, I've got a great idea for you: please do NOT do fuzzy searches by default, or you will become the worst search engine ever. Thanks for consideration.

Product ideas submission is SO frustrating. Even if your idea isn't the same - if the key words are remotely similar its a 100% match then you can't vote for your own idea and post. Really bad Google!

I spent over 20 years developing consumer products, which I sold to almost every major retailer in the United States. Today, I am a marketing consultant to those who wish to take their product ideas national.

What I find is that most of my clients think they want the big box retailers. My job is to help them penetrate new markets, and close distribution deals.

You know what would be REALLY nice?

Instead of crapping around "fixing" things that don't need "fixing", spend some time browsing around the forum pages and address some of the issues that you've fucked up by "fixing" things that aren't broken... Like... Oh, I don't know... The damn image search problems.

I fail to understand how forcing eliminating the ability to click on the URL below the image, forcing the user to click on the image, close the image to get to the originating webpage or clicking on the link "Website for this image" in any way makes things "easier" or "faster" for the user.

Nor do I understand how giving no one the option of switching back to the old version (Oh... yes, there IS the little link at the bottom of the search which "supposedly" switches you to the "old version" which isn't the old version at all) in any way endears your users to you.

The fact is that you don't listen and you don't give a flying monkey's ass what users actually think.

In fact, this probably won't get any response at all, any more than filling out any of the useless "feedback" forms "works".

Hi Google,

I would like to share my idea! I would like you add Connect to option when a user right clicks on their screen. This options should enable the user to connect to their communicators, chats engines (gtalk, skype, msn Lync...), social apps (FB, Twitter)-if possble. So that it is easy for a user to check their available/installed apps on their system with one click than running their eyes through the windows that are minimized in their task bar.
For example: If a end user is working on their official application in their office environment and they wish to talk to their team/colleague. The user should just right click on any of their application or a desktop to connect to their official or personal messenger that they have on their machine to communicate/chat.

Please share your comments!

Regards,
Ujwala
