How does Google plan to monetize Buzz? In Gmail, they have contextual ads. Do you think once this service takes off we will be seeing inline ads? --Saad Kamal
I personally think an ad between every Buzz note would be a tad annoying, but what if Google offered to share the spoils? Google already shares the revenue of AdSense and YouTube advertising with major content players. Offering to give us money for reading Buzz and clicking on links would certainly lighten the mood. It could also cause more click throughs, maybe. Still has the potential to be annoying and in the way. What if they put the ads on the side so it didn't lengthen an already long stream? Frankly, Google doesn't need the money. If they left the ads at the top (where they currently are) it probably wouldn't hurt their stock prices.
What do you think? Does Google need to monetize Google Buzz (more)?
