BREAKING: Facebook Acquires FriendFeed
http://mashable.com/2009/08/10/facebook-acquires-friendfeed/

Huge news in the world of social media today: Facebook has acquired online activity aggregator FriendFeed. According to the release, “all FriendFeed employees will join Facebook and FriendFeed’s four founders will hold senior roles on Facebook’s engineering and product teams.”

- is this a way to compete anymore with Twitter? Twitter is very tightly integrated with friendfeed. Will that continue?

If not friendfeed is dead.

I am a very active friendfeed user (http://friendfeed.com/svartling ) & i'm feeling very worried.

Also, it seems that Facebook only wants the very talented friendfeed developers. So what will happen with friendfeed development?

How to add a friendfeed widget in the Posterous sidebar

Actually you can have widgets/embeds on the side of your Posterous.
Mine is a picture! An active picture made from a FriendFeed widget. Go to friendfeed tools and choose a widget you want but instead of javascript choose image.

Go here on friendfeed: http://friendfeed.com/embed/widget  - Instead of Javascript, choose image. Then you get the code to put in your posterous profile..

Posterous don't allow javascript but almost any other HTML, so you can use other widgets too. For example the Twitter counter I have.
Is there a particular width, or should we go with the default? In the posterous sidebar you should use 200 pixel width

Everything you put in your Posterous profile is visible in the sidebar, so the code from the friendfeed widget must be posted there.

I hope this helps.
