Sharing to Google Buzz Using AddThis

The Web is all a flutter over the recent launch of Google’s most recent foray into the Social Web, Google Buzz. Within hours of my friends getting access, they all wanted to know if they could share to Google Buzz using AddThis. I’m pleased to say the answer is yes.

Within Google Buzz, just make sure that Google Reader is listed as one of your “Connected Sites”. Then, when you share to Google Readerthat link will show up in your Google Buzz feed. It’s that easy.

This means that you’ll be able to share articles to Google Buzz from any of the over 600,000 websites that have integrated AddThis. There’s no need to add an extra button to your page. If you have AddThis, you’re ready to go.

You could also share to Google Reader and thus Google Buzz from our Internet ExplorerFirefox, or Chrome browser extensions.

In the meantime, we’re looking into ways that we can more directly integrate. We’ll report back when we have more information.
