Why Use FriendFeed? You Could Exchange Messages Directly with Robert Scoble.

So many Social Networking sites and so little time. We learned tonight that FriendFeed is a great way to interact directly with bloggers we may only wish would follow us at Twitter. We have Robert Scoble to thank for giving some Twitter users a lesson tonight in using Twitter and FriendFeed together. We simply followed a link to the discussion he started there.

If there are bloggers you would love to have a conversation with, FriendFeed (FF) is a much more likely answer than any other Social Networking site. Simply search for their membership (or follow the little FF emblem from their blog or other Web site) and check out their feed. See if there is a pattern to when they start discussions and pop in on the next one.

There were some really helpful FF users in on the discussion who pointed us to a treasure-trove of FriendFeed posts over at LouisGray.com: 689 of them to be exact. [Correction: Not really – see the first comment below from Louis Gray himself.  See all of his posts at Louis Gray FriendFeed expert. Here are some of the best How to Use FriendFeed posts we’ve selected:

FriendFeed is easier than most sites to figure out, so just jump in. It is easy to add your blog’s feed and even easier to filter the feed of any FF user to just see their blog posts similar to the way you would see them in an RSS feed.

    Excellent Stuff. Cover pretty much everything about blog commenting. You are so right. Forms do play a key role.

  2. Great post, thanks, thumbs-up.

  3. I had never hear of Robert Scoble. How does it work? Please provide more details so that I can add it in my blog.

    David’s last blog post..Thumbs ‘UP’, a great review

  4. @Louis Gray – lol … That number did seem extraordinarily high. It should have occurred to me that the search function on your blog might be picking up the word FriendFeed from your pages instead of just finding the actual Friendfeed posts. Thanks for the link. I’ll move it into the body of the post (and my comments are dofollow too).

    Sometimes mistakes are a good thing. If I hadn’t made this error you might not have visited or commented. As someone wise once said, “If I had it all to do over again, I would make more mistakes faster.”

  5. I appreciate the linkage and mentions, but there’s no way I’ve written about FriendFeed 689 times, as great as their service is. :-)
