The RSS Blog

News and commentary from the RSS and OPML community.

I was quite surprised to find Facebook had bought FriendFeed (for a reported $50 millions).  In fact, it was my opinion that these two companies have competitive user features that don't really create synergies, but rather overlap. Personally, I see this more as a defensive more. Twitter plus FriendFeed could challenge Facebook's social Web dominance.

BTW, FriendFeed should be sending a cut of that $50 million to Robert Scoble. There's no way a geeky social Website is worth $50 million. Just another example of the Scoble Factor. Anybody here heard of Technorati? Six Apart?

Read Dave Winer for more on the Scoble Factor. Dave argues that the acquisition isn't user friendly. Interesting point. Personally, I always saw FriendFeed as a very geeky site. Only my fellow geeks use it. Non-geeks have never heard of it.
