I have not tried it on a mobile phone yet, but I find it has nice integration with the gmail web client as “buzzes” sort of become “email threads” – it’s a nice way to communicate with friends when formal email seems unnecessary.

As for utilizing it, the first thing I would do is link the websites you use with it (twitter, flickr, etc.) and then find other friends using it.

I’m waiting for it to connect all of my statuses (facebook, twitter, etc) together. I want it be a sort of central repository for the different ways I interact online.

Which, admittedly, is just asking for some kind of privacy train wreck.

I used it briefly but it looked like yet another potential time suck so I disconnected it.
From what I saw it looked like Facebook for Google.

I see it as Facebook lite for Google, too. Since I don’t have a Facebook account yet, this a way for me to get my feet wet. It is nice that it comes in via g-mail. So far I’ve have read some of my son’s Twitterings on it, and posted a NY Times article that I found fascinating but nobody I buzzed has commented on it!
