Social Recruiting With Google Buzz

Google launched Google Buzz just two days ago.According to Google:

Google Buzz is a new way to start conversations about the things you find interesting. It’s built right into Gmail, so you don’t have to peck out an entirely new set of friends from scratch — it just works. If you think about it, there’s always been a big social network underlying Gmail. Buzz brings this network to the surface by automatically setting you up to follow the people you email and chat with the most.

Google is trying to catch up with Twitter and Facebook in going social. I have tested it a bit today (my gmail allowed buzz access today) and its quite interesting.

Will this be another social media platform to engage with candidates? Time will tell …
