How Google Buzz is Disruptive: Open Data Standards

Yesterday, Google unveiled Buzz, its social networking feed for Gmail that competes with Twitter and Facebook. Unlike its competitors, however, Google is taking an open, standardized approach to social networking data. In other words, developers will be able to use Google Buzz data in their own applications–services that analyze Buzz activity, offer new ways to post Buzz feeds, etc.

In addition, Buzz will work with a variety of other services. According to ReadWriteWeb, eventually “Buzz users should be able to read, comment on and message to conversations with people who have never seen Buzz in their lives, simply by subscribing to their feeds. There’s huge potential for interoperability here.”

Google Open Web Advocate Chris Messina calls Buzz “a downpayment on where we’re going with the open, social web.”
