One of my favorite features is the commenting thread where readers can share around a specific post; I find fresh conversations with a broader range of people sometimes taking place and I treasure the chance to step outside the social media bell jar.
Another favorite is the Best of feature–I like to see what’s been most commented on in a day or a week again, it’s that sense of freshness and discussion I value.
BUT, there’s a bunch of things I wish FriendFeed would do:
A) Recommend more women, I rarely see women in the recommendations of popular sources, what is with that? Has anyone gotten more than 3 women recommended, total?
B) Publish a directory of rooms, at least the open ones. I have still not figured out how to find them(Okay, just found this post on using Google search by Andy Beard). And of course, being the list addict I try not to be, I also want to know which of the public rooms are the biggest/the most active and the most popular.
C) Show best of for an individual account. buzzyeah has written about wanting this feature and I agree, it’s a good one,
Friendfeed has done a good job of listening to their community and rolling out features, let’s see if there’s any traction here.
