Buzz update

Google has updated Buzz to address some of the privacy concerns. If you’re like me and are interested in completely disabling Buzz, go to your Gmail settings ‘Buzz’ tab (you may need to do a logout/login to get the latest code).

If you click ‘Disable Google Buzz’, it claims to completely remove your Google profile, Buzz posts, and unfollow you from anyone you’re following in Buzz as well as Reader. This did happen for me.

What I still don’t like is there seems to be still no place where I can monitor state, i.e. be assured that Buzz is “disabled” on my account. Even after you click ‘Disable Google Buzz’, your settings page will display exactly the same message, which technically would lead you to believe that Buzz is still active.
