I did mention FriendFeed in a recent Blogcatalog post regarding their activity widgets, and have been looking at it in a little more depth.

There are lots of posts about how wonderful it is, or pointless but very few delving into some of the flaws or missing features. I know they have support and feedback on Google Groups… but I hate Google Groups, and the feedback from the groups isn’t necessarily making it out into the blogosphere.

Exclusive: Activity SocialStream Goes Portable With Blogcatalog

Blogcatalog Socialstream Activity Widget

Blogcatalog have introduced a new exciting widget to help keep blog readers connected with your other activities.

I am not a big fan of posts that are just a big links roundup.

I normally include a disclosure at the end of my posts relating to Blogcatalog and MyBlogLog, because I want to preserve as much impartiality as possible.

If I was writing paid reviews about them, or had accepted direct advertising, I would have earned a lot more than I will probably receive long term if you factor in associated risk.
