A privacy group has called on US regulators to investigate Google’s new social networking tool, claiming it invades users’ privacy.
The Electronic Privacy Information Center filed a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission about Buzz – part of the search giant’s Gmail.
Buzz was introduced to all users of Google’s email service last week. The tool displayed social networking lists based on each user’s most emailed contacts.
Google has already changed Buzz twice in order to allay fears over invasion of users’ privacy, however, EPIC argues that more changes need to be made.
