Douglas MacMillan’s Business Week article, describes the situation as:

‘Ultimately, Google Buzz can succeed without taking share from social network rivals, Jackson admits. “We don’t think there is a finite pie where everyone is competing for a slice,” he says. “We think over time the pie increases in size.”‘
