Google Buzz vs. Outlook 2010 Social Connectors - Yahoo! News

Check the full article for more details

Feedback on Google Buzz thus far has many users complaining that the addition of Buzz to Gmail is a huge distraction. The Outlook 2010 social connectors approach seems much less chaotic, and much more functional from a business perspective.

The contact-centric approach taken by Microsoft enables you to quickly and easily view all content associated with a given user--including their recent Twitter tweets, Facebook status updates, or other social networking interactions--without overwhelming the Outlook inbox or dumping an avalanche of irrelevant communications on you.

We're still a few months away from the official launch of Office 2010, and there are no social connectors available just yet. But, Microsoft's approach seems much more efficient, and more promising for business professionals, especially for business users that already rely on Microsoft Outlook for e-mail, or who are interested in integrating social networks beyond Twitter.
