FriendFeed Officially Launches

closeThis post was published 13 years 10 months 24 days ago. A number of changes have been made to the site since then, so please contact me if anything is broken or seems wrong.

After five months in private beta, FriendFeed has now opened its doors and enabled simple, immediate registration for anyone who desires to join the community. FriendFeed, which provides a stream of friends’ activities aggregated from a pool of nearly 30 services (as of this writing), also raised $5,000,000 in funding through two of its co-founders.

The changes have been coming thick and fast at FriendFeed, and I anticipate that they’ll just keep on coming in the future. Since they got Kevin Fox working on the UI, things have been getting better and better. Why just a few days ago, they added tabs to the interface, and it’s always been quite user-friendly and easy-to-use. I have had an account for a few months now, and I like the service. Perhaps now that it’s public, more people I know will sign up for it… Or not. Let’s face it: Most of my friends are pretty non-technical. But I’ll just see how it goes. Meanwhile, enjoy the open registration, everyone!


I am an avid technology and software user, in addition to being reasonably well-versed in CSS, JavaScript, HTML, PHP, Python, and (though it still scares me) Perl. Aside from my technological tendencies, I am also a theatre technician, sound designer, violinist, singer, and actor.
