Google just released its new social media platform. Google Buzz allows you to share pictures, thoughts and even your location with your friends. If you already have a Gmail, all you have to do is click the Google Buzz button to get started. But wait!

Industry insiders point to several potential security concerns with Google's new wunderkind. One problem is that Google Buzz automatically sets you up with followers and people to follow. Is there anyone on your current contact list with whom you would prefer not to share your photos and the details of your daily life? You see the problem

While Google is working to patch these security issues, it may be best to hold off on Google Buzz until privacy advocates give the all clear. If you already signed up, here are some step-by-step directions to make sure you have turned off Google Buzz completely.
