Couldn’t believe the news, but it’s true: Google is evil. If you have a Gmail account, you will have been greeted by a “Want to try Buzz out?” thingy.
Well, it doesn’t matter that you clicked “no”. It’s turned on. You are being followed, and you are following people. Google thought that’d be for the best. Caught me by surprise, too.
To turn this off: Scroll to the bottom of the page. Above the copyright notice, there is a line with several options. One is to turn Buzz on/off.
My advice: Click it. Off it goes.
