For many users, the Buzz inbox notifications got too noisy. According to this article on the official Gmail blog, Google has worked on two improvements:
1) Settings to control what gets sent to your inboxFrom the Buzz tab of Gmail Settings, you’ll be able to choose whether the following buzz items get sent to your inbox:
- Comments on your posts
- Comments on posts after you comment on them
- Comments on posts after you are @replied on them
2) Explanations for why posts get sent to your inbox and an easy-to-find “Mute” linkYou'll see a new message at the top of each post in your inbox that explains why it’s there: someone commented on your post, you were @replied, etc. We’ve also added an easy-to-find “mute” link that will stop subsequent comments from bringing the conversation back to your inbox.
