i want you to get together: social thing, friendfeed

Everything live happening on the Internet with your friends, in all web sites you use, with interaction and posting utility from one social network to another, comes with livestream personal dashboard of socialthing. What I’ve noticed here is the lack of privacy, e.g. if you are protecting Twitter updates, even if you twit via social thing, they will appear in other social networks visible to all. For now, it’s private beta version and you need invite. Looks something like this:

On the other side friendfeed is more user-friendly and enables you to share numerous feeds with your friends. You can share updates with people you choose, protect your data, or you can choose to keep them in public, open for everyone. Lovely utility is commenting and discussion information and items among your friends. It’s free and open.

  1. Highly optimistic vision :)… No need for social feed. Social networks would open up, and allow you to import your material from other sources. It would also allow you to switch networks, but still be able to communicate with your friends.

    Current social networks don’t allow this, which is somewhat reasonable — they are keeping their users by that. You use the network most of your friends use. This could be compared to telephony users being able to communicate only to the people on the same network. It would be bad.

    So, I predict opening up. It would make the market more competitive, because the users would use the network which suits them most, and not just because their friends use it. Here’s another analogy to the telephony: in some countries it is possible to switch mobile networks, and to keep your number. This seems like logical next step for social networks, too.
