Are you using Google Buzz? Are you noticing something strange about the unread count?
Right now, mine says 29. Great! Time to view what’s new here. One minute later, hey there’s 29 new updates again. Let’s view them. I don’t see anything new here…
There appears to be a bug with Google Buzz currently that causes the unread count to get stuck (or increase when new updates come in) regardless of how many new buzzes there actually are but never drops to 0.
The main problem doesn’t seem to be the counter because the new updates number is correct. The problem is that the system isn’t properly recording which buzzes you read therefore marking them all as new. The yellow bar next to new messages stays there regardless of whether or not the message is actually new.
I just noticed it today however it appears to be a bug that existed since last Friday on April 23, 2010.
Please note that this does not affect all users. Some users that this has affected have reported that it has been fixed already.
Are you experiencing the same problem? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
Update 5/2: Many users, myself included report that this bug fixes itself when your buzz count hits ’100+’.
Update 5/3: Commenter Darcey reports that the bug doesn’t automatically fix at 100+ for everyone.
