How to switch off Google Buzz

Google Buzz has hardly taken the world by storm. Twitter, blogs and tech sites are swelling with complaints over its privacy and, in particular, its irritating habit of clogging up previously spam-free  Gmail inboxes with its constant alerts.

I’m going to battle on for a few more days before I deliver my verdict on Buzz. But several people have already emailed/Tweeted us to ask how to turn Buzz off.

The answer is simple but relatively well hidden.  Drop down to the foot of the Gmail page and you’ll find a tiny link marked “turn off Buzz”.


If you need any further instruction, you really shouldn’t be using the computer without adult supervision.
