FriendFeed – a primer

FriendFeed is an online service that allows users to share photos, music, news, videos, and Web sites with their social network.

While users can manually post on FriendFeed, a unique component of the service is that it aggregates activity from sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Pandora, Photobucket, Tumblr, and Twitter and alerts friends of that activity. For example, when I upload new photos to my Flickr account an update is sent out on FriendFeed saying “Dana published 5 photos on Flickr.”

FriendFeed can also act as a central location for blog, Twitter and social network activities.  In fact, there is a handy Facebook application that allows users to operate Friendfeed through Facebook. Ultimately, this makes Friendfeed a main hub for sending out updates and working with many social networking accounts.

FriendFeed currently supports user activity on 60 Web sites.
