I also hooked up LinkedIn and Facebook but I’m not sure what that means exactly.
I was really impressed with how quickly I could pull all this stuff together and how easy it was to find other friends using FriendFeed. Kudos to the team for putting together an app which is so easy to use. I also tried Plaxo Pulse but it wasn’t even in the same league.
Here are my asks from the team (in order of priority):
- [important] Let me read a feed with just my friends updates. Right now my only option for a consolidated feed includes my updates — short of a drinking binge I usually know when I make updates. The feed also includes speculative “friends of friends” updates which I would love to disable.
- [kinda important] Give me a badge for my wordpress blog. I know I *could* write one using the API, but I’m lazy and busy.
- [just a thought] I sometimes had trouble understanding what I was getting by adding a feed. What is a LinkedIn profile feed? I really appreciate the simplicity of the add interface (signature Kevin Fox) but wanted a way to learn more or get a preview.
- [just a thought] My “movies at home” would have a much higher signal to noise ratio than movies I put into my queue. I personally would be more interested in movies my friends are watching now, as opposed to movies they may watch some day. Netflix offers this feed but the FriendFeed Netflix service didn’t seem to recognize the feed.
I dropped my friends FriendFeed feed (how is that for a mouthful) into Reader. I’ll see how that goes for a month or so and report back.
