Buzz is the new Facebook?

Is Buzz the new Faceebook?

I am not asking this in the sense that Google's Buzz is going to get a new market share overnight (unless they add some amazing new features). I am more surprised that they haven't gotten a bad rap for privacy as much as Facebook, yet.

I just uploaded some pictures in picasa and Buzz auto-updates it in my status! Now, I did upload them as a public album and thought I will worry about the privacy later - after all, I haven't uploaded any album in picasa for over a year and I doubt I have anyone checking my public albums on a daily basis. I clearly wasn't expecting a buzz update, especially considering I haven't used buzz in a long time (I wonder if I have used it at all to update my status).

While I was never quite happy about the auto-follow suggestions from Buzz, I didnt really worry about it since I was only "following" and didn't actively post stuff. But now looks like I may have to re-check my buzz settings and "tweak" it to set my desired privacy levels. Hope that works out to be easier than Facebook's.
