Want to know why the future of FriendFeed is a search engine? Try this search. http://friendfeed.com/search?q… I get more great blog post ideas and find more valuable information from this search than anyplace else on the web today.
I agree. I use FriendFeed entries as points of illumination for my blog posts. The site has really generated some terrific points of view and information. For a blogger, it’s a terrific hunting ground.
One thing I want: trackbacks. When a blog uses a link to a FriendFeed entry, I’d love a trackback to the blog included in the comments.
When a trackback link is added to an entry, it has the same impact as a comment. It bounces the entry to the top of people’s FriendFeed page.
Why do this?
- Blog post amplifies the entry. Give it the full comment treatment.
- Acknowledges FriendFeed’s growing role in information creation, distribution and consumption.
- As a creator of FriendFeed content, I’d love to know how it’s used out there, just like a blogger.
What do you think? Useful?
