FriendFeed is a feed aggregator that compiles updates from social networks, blogs, and more all in one place. These updates are streamed into a real-time conversation and the company is working to make their real-time capabilities better. In the above video, social media expert Chris Brogan shares his thoughts about FriendFeed saying:
“FriendFeed is one of these tools that I think is really cool, but I just don’t see it getting the public eye.”
One interesting issue that Chris raises is that there is still a lot to be figured out with these sites that try to conglomerate all Web activities. The first “good” attempt to solve the problem was OpenID and there have been other attempts such as Google Friend Connect and Pownce.
What are these sites missing? Is there a solution?
