You love your Gmail, don’t you?
I still do, even after their attempt to force me to BUZZ!
You know what I’m talking about. Recently, you logged in to your email and noticed that Google had set up this new thing called “Buzz”.
No biggie–until you realized that they just went ahead and assumed that you’d want to be a part of it.
Days after I figured out how to remove this new form of irritation from my screen, I received an email from one of my closest friends: “Social networking scares me…I saw you were “following me” and I don’t know what it might lead to in the future..so I bliznocked you…I hope you don’t read anything into it…you are always welcome in my non e-world..”
I laughed, and replied: “I didn’t even try to get involved with that BUZZ stuff hahahaa if you scroll down to the bottom of your gmail you can turn it off. Irritating how they tried to force people into it (I never tried to “follow” anyone). I don’t want to TWEET or TWITTER or MYSPACE or any of that stuff. Just Facebook.”
That word reminds me of 1997 and a radio station I was on that had major potential, but played way too much John Cougar Mellencamp.
