Today, in a blog post, Google announced it will be shutting down Google Buzz in a few week’s time. Google says it will be shutting down Buzz and the Buzz API to focus on Google , where users will be able to see their existing Buzz content and download it using Google Takeout. We aspire to build great products that really change people’s lives, products they use two or three times a day. To succeed you need real focus and thought—thought about what you work on and, just as important, what you don’t work on. It’s why we recently decided to shut down some products, and turn others into features of existing products. -Bradley Horowitz, Vice President, Product at Google. In addition to Buzz, Google Labs site will shut down, and as previously announced, Boutiques.com and the former Like.com websites will be replaced by Google Product Search.
