WPMU.org lists 5 different ways you can integrate Google Buzz into your WordPress and BuddyPress site. Aside from a the Buzz This WP plugin and the Digg-like button, you can also display your Buzz stream and share BP profiles to Buzz.

  1. “Buzz This” Plugin for WordPress
  2. Make Your Own Button to Add Anywhere in Your Template
  3. Share Your Google Buzz Posts on Your Site with Google Buzz ER Plugin
  4. Add the Ability to Share BuddyPress Profile Links With a “Buzz This” Button
  5. Add “Buzz This” to Individual BuddyPress Activity Stream Posts

Although Google Buzz is facing controversy right now for privacy issues, it could become a huge social network overnight since it’s built right inside Gmail, and bloggers will definitely want to take advantage of that audience.

August 6, 2009 | No Comments Yet

Blogs are usually public publishing platforms, but what if you wanted to keep yours away from prying eyes? Enter Absolute Privacy, a WordPress plugin designed to lockdown your WP blog with all custom user access features. You have to option to hide your blog from viewers who are not logged in and force new registrants to enter their first and last name.

After having a few odd registrations and comments on our family blog, my wife asked me to create a plugin that would give the blog security from strangers but still be easily accessible to family and friends. Absolute Privacy does just that! Absolute Privacy turns your WordPress blog into a fully private site where you control who has access. It’s perfect for family blogs, private communities, and personal websites.
