In my ongoing quest to find the ultimate Web 2.0 utility I’ve just started using Friendfeed.
The idea is simple: you subscribe for an account then add the feeds for a bunch of social bookmarking and networking services you already use, like del.icio.us, reddit, youtube, twitter, last.fm, etc. Friendfeed then monitors all your activities and publishes them in one place. Here’s mine.
If you’ve ever found it difficult to keep track of everything you’re doing online then that’s useful enough. But it doesn’t stop there. What’s even more interesting is that you can add friends see all their feeds alongside yours.
At the moment I don’t have any Friendfeed buddies 😦 so my Friendfeed actually looks identical to my individual feed. Over the next few months I’ll be working on my Facebook buddies who already use social bookmarking sites to try and get them to adopt Friendfeed too.
Incidentally, it’s also really easy to add people already using Friendfeed since it automatically publishes everyone’s activity into one mega-feed. So you can scan through (or search for something/someone in particular) and quickly add them.
