Google seems to be working hard at Buzz. Increasingly it seems to group buzz updates together, like so:
On twitter we long had this problem with the same links and retweets showing up in our streams every so often. It would have been nice if those had automatically been grouped together like in the Buzz timeline, but they weren’t. Twitter fixed this problem by implementing native retweet functionality, which sort of solves the issue. So, the question is: why did Buzz group these particular updates together? To Let’s step into the algorithmic brain of the Google and try to figure this out. Let’s ungroup the updates:
Those with eye to detail will notice the number of updates here. How many were there when they were grouped? 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Right? And when expanded? 1, 2, 3, 4… huh?
Google, I think, or at least hope, you can do better than this.
