I tried FriendFeed tonight and its’ actually FANTASTIC. Why? In a nutshell, besides being much more lightweight than Spooko, it works on Mobile Devices (like my TMobile Sidekick Slide) and has a nice mobile interface.
There’s a pretty good writeup of FriendFeed over at TechCrunch –FriendFeed Is This Years Twitter, But Why?
“..The concept of FriendFeed is simple enough. You add disparate accounts across blogs and social networking services, and Friendfeed aggregates them so friends can follow what you’re doing. The interface is clean, not surprising given the company was founded by ex-Googlers, and using it is easy.
I asked for some feedback on FriendFeed via Twitter and Michael responded saying that Friendfeed was this year’s Twitter, complete with SXSW inflection point. Others, such as Steve Rubel and Louis Gray are talking about the service like it was the most amazing thing they’ve seen in years.”
I agree. Having missed being an Early Adopter of Twitter – I jumped on board about 5 months ago and now Tweet almost compulsively – I’ve decided not to miss out on being an early adopter here. I spent a few minutes with FriendFeed and knew immediately – this is special – this is what people need to do this year – if you want to stay up and up – be on Twitter, be on Friendfeed and Blog – plus join a few Social Networks (Facebook is the best, for the time being) (you can even join WAASOCIAL – waasocial.webanalyticsassociation.org)
