FriendFeed: it’s my blog, but probably better

I started writing this blog to share stories and news with my friends. It wasn’t much more than a commentary on my Google Reader shared items.

Here’s FriendFeed: the latest installment of the social web-sharing genre. Let me know if it serves you well.

Service Helps Friends Share Their Online Discoveries – New York Times
FriendFeed users can see what their friends are reading, listening to or viewing on the Web as a continuous stream of notifications. This stream can appear on a personal Web page or in a module on the user’s customized page on Facebook or Google. The system does not require the installation of software, but it does require the friends to participate.

The system can track people’s activities on a variety of Web sites, ranging from collaborative news filtering sites like Digg and Slashdot to music services like Last.fm and video and photo services like YouTube and Flickr.

FriendFeed now supports 23 Web services, and it also permits users to comment on postings and carry on online discussions.

“This gives you a snapshot of what people you know think is interesting,” Mr. Taylor said. “It’s kind of a blog that writes itself.”
