Google Earth.... literally.

Google knows just about everything now... Where you live, what's in your refridgerator, and even includes pictures of your house with you mowing your lawn so people know what you look like. The newest privacy leak is Buzz. If you can find the name of someone... anyone....

You can follow them and see all of thier posts and sometimes thier email... without them even allowing you to. As soon as you post something on Buzz; anyone can find it and then have any of the names of the people who commented on it.

Noramlly I don't really care about stuff like this, in fact I don't plan to do much about it other than this post, but it seems strange that a company as large as Google would give your email address and all of your "buzzes" out to anyone who randomly types in your name. The only thing that can help is that it lets you hide your email address and the people who follow you
I'm not saying Google is evil... afterall, I'm using it right now to post this. :P
It just seems strange that they would share with the world my email address and all the people I frequently contact.
If you've seen a way to keep everyone from seeng all your buzzes or have any thoughts... (including not abandoning facebook quite yet) Leave a comment.
