Facebook targets FriendFeed

With the popularity of FriendFeed and many others playing the life streaming aggregation game, it was only a matter of time for Facebook to react.

Facebook announces you can now import your feeds in your mini-feed and therefore, in your feed.


ReadWriteWeb does not see much there while allfacebook thinks that Facebook might become a real menace to FriendFeed if they open up their API for mini-feed importation. I agree with ReadWriteWeb that it would be great if Facebook began to open their API the other way around too. As they note the two won’t really compete without commenting features and without support for more sites.

If Facebook do add commenting features, I think the viral aspects of Facebook might give commenting feeds a leg up and allow content to disseminate through the social graph. It might be a good way to discover content from friends of friends.
