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!
