FriendFeed, Aggregate and Content With Friends


FriendFeed is a new social network that aggregates and shares your feeds from various web services. You just add the accounts you use and then your posts to those services are automatically added to FriendFeed and shared with your friends, who then can can then comment on various items that are posted.

FriendFeed was created by a team of ex-Google employees and recently launched out of private beta, now open to everyone.

The goal of FriendFeed is to make content on the Web more relevant and useful for you by using your existing social network as a tool for discovering interesting information. You get a customized feed made up of the content that your friends shared, from news articles to family photos to interesting links and videos. And your friends get their customized feeds, full of the cool stuff that you’ve shared.

Check out Eric Eldon’s excellent VentureBeat write-up on the FriendFeed launch.

FriendFeed also includes some interesting usage statistics, for example here’s a pie charge showing top sites where I post.
