Facebook has bought Friendfeed.
I’ve, subsequently, removed all of my info on Friendfeed.
I like Facebook. It’s a good platform for keeping in touch with friends, playing silly little games, and all that stuff… BUT, it has been proven several times that Facebook doesn’t care about your privacy. Examples include them changing their TOS (to change rights to photos and such), and also the advertisement photo use. (NOTE: I have no problem with Facebook making money, but could they find a better way, like through “better” ads? But I digress…)
Now they have Friendfeed. I still don’t know what to make of it, but I did change my “lifestream” to Tumblr. The only issue with Tumblr is that you can only import 5 RSS feeds or other accounts. So, using RSS and twitterfeed, I’ve connected up my wakoopa and Mixx accounts to twitter and identi.ca. The only overlap I have is the blog, which is fed into Tumblr and to twitter/identi.ca, so my followers will get two notices of it updating. There’s really nothing I can do about it, as I want both there, and I don’t feel people should have to click twice to get the the real article.
The only thing I feed to Facebook is my blog. I haven’t had twitter/identi.ca hooked up to Facebook for awhile now (too many non-important messages and @’s that didn’t make sense to people there, unless they followed me on twitter/identi.ca).
I’ll keep following the buzz surrounding this, but I wanted to get something out there, as I loved Friendfeed and the ease of getting someone’s whole online life (or at least how much they’re sharing) in one place.
