    The privacy issue that has plagued Google Buzz has been disabled. The Auto-follow feature connected other users to you automatically to follow you without your permission, exposing you, your chat contacts and correspondence contacts. That's fine if you opt for it. The grievance was for those who had no desire to participate. Problem solved. Google Buzz will be an opt in service from now on. You can now decide which people will follow you.
