Through the network, you can bring together favorite topics, people, commercial brands and more
FriendFeed gets more interesting every day. Some people say it’s too hard to use or that it should have more or fewer features, but you have to look at FriendFeed for its purpose.
FriendFeed was initially a place where you could bring your social network RSS feeds into one place and share information and favorite links with your friends.
FriendFeed helps you share your stuff, discover the stuff your friends think is cool and discuss how cool it is. Simple, right?
Soon after FriendFeed became popular, people started forming “rooms”— they’ve been renamed groups — where they could focus their sharing around areas of interest. Through the “rooms,” visitors can broaden their networks by meeting other people with similar interests.
Social media took off, and suddenly there were a slew of social networks that could feed into your FriendFeed page. You can bring in microblogs, videos, blogs and all kinds of other content as well as your own thoughts for discussion. People can “like” what you post and/or comment on it, and there are often spirited discussions on the topic from a wide range of people.
