A while back I posted on an alternate interface for Friendfeed called Mio News, this allows you to group friends in folders and when you click a folder you can see a stream for just that group of friends…no different than an RSS Reader.
I really wish Twitter would do this, as sometimes I just want to see updates from my KM friends. So I thought, maybe I can find those KM friends on Friendfeed, and make a list, and then eventually I would be able to access that stream on mobile Friendfeed. Quite simply all I did was view a list, and then click the Twitter icon from one of the items in the stream, and voila…a group Twitter stream.
One point of feedback.
When I’m on a user profile I can filter their stream by clicking a button on the top of the screen, but when I’m on my home stream or on a list stream there lacks a set of these “filter by service” buttons…instead as mentioned above I have to click on the service icon from one of the items in the stream to get a filtered view.
Also I’d like to do multiple filters eg. from my KM list show me just tweets and del.icio.us links
A related point is when I view my user stream, one of the service filter buttons on the top of the page is “FF”, these are posts you make on Friendfeed itself (which by the way now allows you to upload pictures)…but when I look at my list of services (under the My Feeds section) on by right sidebar, this FF service is missing.
I’ve noticed on this beta version that the “hide” feature is missing. Hopefully it will come back and also add a page where I can access a list of all the stuff I’m hiding.
Coming back to my post on alternate FriendFeed interfaces, I agree with Read Write Web that we need a way to avoid the fragmented conversations on duplicate items within Friendfeed itself, something Moopz tackles…more basic memetracker is Friendfeed Links.
Here’s some Friendfeed tools to play with.
