FriendFeed & '4urface'

I just heard a little birdie talking about facebook acquiring friendfeed… and it’s true! I actually had no clue what friendfeed was until I started reading the article. Pretty much it combines facebook, twitter and google etc all together into one feed. There’s actually 58 services (I think, don’t quote me on that) that you can import from. People can not only converse under things that you post, but you can have discussions as well as private groups, so that it acts as kind of a mail-list. You can keep in touch with your relatives this way (if you don’t want them to peek into your facebook accounts!) as well as have newsfeed like good old twitter. I just signed up for it, my friendfeed is http://friendfeed.com/esvienne.

I’m not sure if I’m going to keep it- I just signed up to get a feel for it so that I could write about it. I like how it’s laid out, however, it’s not very organized. It’s just.. well.. a feed. I don’t really like to have too many social networking sites to begin with so I only really have three linked on there. It may not be worth it for me but we’ll see. I’m interested to see what direction facebook takes this. Maybe it’ll get rid of their “everyone” feature on the livefeed. I HATE THAT! facebook is personal, not like twitter for the world to see. If you want that, then join twitter! geez. good job facebook.

On another note, my friend just started up a food blog and evidently he is an excellent cook, so I suggest you check out his website and even subscribe to it. It has some great unique dishes up! Do it. http://4urface.wordpress.com
