Google Buzz Privacy

Some of Google Buzz’s features have been noted to have privacy concerns similar to those of Facebook. One feature in particular has been widely criticized as a severe privacy flaw: by default Google Buzz publicly discloses (on the user’s Google profile) a list of the names of Gmail contacts that the user has most frequently emailed or chatted with. Users who fail to disable this feature (or don’t realize that they have to) may have sensitive information about themselves and their contacts revealed.

Google Profiles existed before Buzz and could be set by the user to be indexed or not. After Buzz was released, the last name field was required to be nonempty, and profiles set not to be indexed became indexed for a profile search.
