I'm not too old to have imaginary friends

Can I keep track of friends that don't use FriendFeed?

Yes, you can use our "imaginary friends" feature to see what your friends are sharing on some services, even if they aren't FriendFeed users themselves. For example, if you know your friend's Flickr username, you can create an imaginary friend with that Flickr account, and every time your friend publishes a photo to a public album, you'll see it as an entry in your feed.

You can only use FriendFeed's imaginary friends feature to see the public information your friends share.

Does FriendFeed work with Facebook?

Yes, FriendFeed works with Facebook. You can connect your Facebook account to your FriendFeed account by adding the FriendFeed Facebook application. Your friends will automatically be kept in sync, and you can put your FriendFeed on your profile and in your Facebook mini-feed.

The easiest way to connect your FriendFeed and Facebook accounts is to click the Facebook link on your account settings page.

How else can I access FriendFeed?

You can view your FriendFeed in your iGoogle homepage or read it in a feed reader. Our Atom feed contains all comments, likes, and thumbnails, as well as detailed Media RSS tags so you can get as good of a FriendFeed experience in your feed reader as you do on the FriendFeed site. You can even get your entire FriendFeed — comments and all — delivered to your inbox. If your feed is public, you can also use our blog widget to embed your FriendFeed in your homepage or blog.

Can I choose who sees my feed? Where else will my feed show up?

You have complete control over who sees your feed. Your FriendFeed is either public or private, and you can change your preferences in your account settings. If your FriendFeed is private, you approve every subscription request for your feed, and your stuff will not be visible to anyone other than your approved friends. If you choose to make your FriendFeed public, anyone can subscribe to you without requiring approval, and your stuff will show up on the FriendFeed homepage.

So, I have a FriendFeed account. I'm getting way too into the social networking thing ... without having a lot to contribute. I guess I just want to feel connected.
