How many have noticed this but at the bottom of you gmail you can turn off gmail chat and google Buzz. So if you hate it then simply turn it off now:
Good to know I have some unwanted Buzz followers and I've blocked them yet I can't say that I trust Google 100% to keep my stuff private. Even with the privacy options.
Don't forget that as soon as you first "sign up" to Buzz it automatically adds people. They might not've known they were following you.
Do they not know if your following them? The reason I ask is that one of my friends who is NOT on buzz mentioned that he knew I was following him and why. Hummmmm not I need to go follow one of my kids and test this out.
OK I log on to kiddo's one email (who never reads his email) and as soon as I log on I see this:
I clicked the "Nah go to my inbox" and what do I see but google buzz on the side there for me to click like I already said I wanted it and I did not. Now google did take me to my inbox but it auto put the buzz there. So I look and this is what I saw (after I clicked on buzz)
SO I went and repeated the process with my spam email and same thing except that had no followers. See I think this is total crap that you don't join but that they auto join you and you have to opt out by clicking the "turn off buzz" Oh yeah way to go google for this one because how do they know that this email account is a adult of child? In this case its a child - sorry but this does piss me off. There is no security here - total BS that they auto sign everyone.
I think it autoadds anyone who you have emailed before that has gmail. Like if they have been autoadded to your contacts just because you have emailed in the past it will add those people to your follow list for you.
When you hit the "Turn Off Buzz" here is what you get
