Submission + - Google CEO blames Buzz users were "confused" (

Pojut writes: In the wake of the Google Buzz controversy, Google CEO Eric Schmidt had this to say:

"I would say that we did not understand how to communicate Google Buzz and its privacy," he said. "There was a lot of confusion when it came out on Tuesday, and people thought that somehow we were publishing their email addresses and private information, which was not true. I think it was our fault that we did not communicate that fact very well, but the important thing is that no really bad stuff happens in the sense that nobody's personal information was disclosed."

I'm sure there are many who would disagree.
