Get Your Friends Together in One Feed
There are a lot of bright minds currently trying to figure out what’s going to be the biggest deal for Web 3.0. Crowds of visionaries and coders are developing all kinds of software and services in anticipation of the “fallout” from the social web.
One of the most pressing problems with Web 2.0 is, now that we are all so darned social across multiple sites, how we can aggregate our friends from each major social site to one place without having to monitor all our different friend groups separately.
Imagine being able to watch what your friends at YouTube are up to while at the same time keeping up with your Digg, Facebook, Delicious, StumbleUpon, and Twitter friends activity. No one has time to constantly monitor everything separately by clicking, logging in, and checking on activity at each site.
To make yourself a more effective and attentive friend and to keep up on what others are doing, including your competitors, it would be nice to have all your accounts merge into one feed that regularly updates when one of your friends Diggs something and others Twitter and Stumble on other things.
How it Works
- Sign up here.
- Tell FriendFeed what your username is for all the accounts you’d like to merge into the feed.
Now all your friends across the sites you choose to include will be updating this new feed whenever they do something on any of those sites. Then you can glance at it whenever you please to get the “pulse” of your larger friend group on all the big social sites.
Sneaky Competitive Intel
Become friends with your competitors on all the sites you can and watch what they are submitting and commenting on.
Whether you use FriendFeed.com to spy on competitors or spy on friends, it will definitely help you quickly “check in” on the action and be a better social marketer (or butterfly).
