Google has been accused of making it too easy to leak private info via Buzz, particularly your list of contacts. In order to keep that info secure, you had to opt-out of an auto-generated list when you first set up your Google public profile. Google now makes that list opt-in, but for early adopters who activated a profile before all the backlash started, you’ll soon be asked to re-confirm your choices.
