But in the days following, from what I've seen and heard, it is clear to me that FriendFeed is not going away, that the company's being part of Facebook isn't the end of the world, and that after nearly two years of going it alone, the time had come to make a change.
I'm sorry to say this Louis, but I think Friendfeed is dead. I think Friendfeeds future is very cloudy to say the least. But here is a light in the sky and that's Google Reader, and Google Reader will not go away,that's for sure. The problem is that the FriendFeed users don't get it. Google Reader has almost identical features to friendfeed, well most of them. Friendfeed still has some cool features that I miss, like embedding threads, permalinks and some more, but Google Reader already have a "Home Feed" and a "User Friendfeed" where all thing we share are visible. We can like items, we can comment on items and we can share them with others. Google Reader IS the new friendfeed.
