While we have talked about the wonders of social networking, with the astounding number of services out there, how do you ever keep up with everything your friends are doing on all of them? That is where a service like FriendFeed comes in.
FriendFeed is what is known as an “agregator” in that it brings information from multiple sources into one centralized location to ease your access to it. Let’s say you have accounts on Del.icio.us, Flickr, Digg and some more, you sign up for an account on FriendFeed, enter your account information from those sites, and then your friends can go to your page to follow everything you do on every site from one place. This saves them time from having to visit each site to see what you’re doing, and then you can in turn do the same with all of their social accounts.
The other bonus to everything being one centralized location is that FriendFeed allows people to leave comments on your activities so that everyone can join in on the conversation. This also can be done without them even having to have an account for the site activity they are commenting about.
With support for over 40 sites and activities, this is a fantastic way to keep your online social life organized, saving both you and your friends a lot of wasted time from looking to see if the other updated all the time.
