FriendFeed Rolls Out Real-Time Page Updates

Popular feed aggregation web site FriendFeed was already the perfect tool to aggregate your online social life, but now the site pushes out every update in real-time.

If you’re not familiar with FriendFeed, you can think of it sort of like Facebook’s news feed, but it works with the entire web. You can add virtually anything to your FriendFeed, from your Flickr photos to your personal blog to Twitter. Also like Facebook’s news feed, other FriendFeed users can comment on any individual item that appears in your FriendFeed. If nothing else, FriendFeed is a great tool for consolidating your different online activity so you can give your friends or family one feed that contains all your online activity.

The FriendFeed update also adds more control over who can see your items, along with a new feature allowing you to share items in your FriendFeed via email. FriendFeed remains one of the more elusive, hard-to-understand webapps for many, but the features it provides will become more and more handy for web users over time, so it’s an app that’s worth a try. If you’re an active FriendFeed user, share your tips for understanding and making the most of FriendFeed in the comments.

  • @hockeybrad @jeninmotion … this feature seemed broken to me too, but i found out that really it’s only the status updates that you can’t add yet. you can still use the RSS links for FB Notes and FB Links.

    Also, if you are using Twitter to update your FB status, then links & notes from FB would be all you need anyway to avoid redundancy (which is, incidentally, quite well-managed by FF also).
