Didn't realize that by having gmail you are automatically signed up for buzz.

Just went and turn it off in my gmail.
Here is the steps to turn google buzz off from gmail (for those don't know how):

Although everyone who had Google Buzz added to their accounts opted for it. I remember Google Buzz offering it's services to me which, since I didn't have the time to review it, I declined. I think people might have just expected it to work exactly like facebook and didn't read details in how Google Buzz worked. The problem with society is they get too used to things and expect things to astound them with novelty and yet be exactly what they're used to.

Google Buzz turns itself on to some extent whether you asked for it or not.
