A serious problem – I have 2800 “Zombies” that haven’t been fed for 11 days – they like eating my brains.. or the product of my brain, yet can’t get their daily dose.
Chris Cree spotted today that Friendfeed subscribers are now counted towards Feedburner stats.
It can make quite a striking difference with Feedburner if you have a few followers there.
There are a number of fundamental flaws in many of the “calculations” being floated as a business model for Twitter.
I am just going to revert to bullets to make this easier to digest.
I noticed within the new Problogger room on FriendFeed, Darren mentioned the following:-
â€œfeel free to invite others to this room – as long as they are bloggers and/or are interested in the ProBlogger type topic I’m happy for anyone and everyone to join. I’ve invited all my contacts on FF. Pity there’s no list of public groups for people to join.â€
Just a few miscellaneous tips without too much explanation.
Don’t forget to:-
1. Sign up and use Twitter
2. Sign up and use Friendfeed
3. Add both to Technorati
4. Ping both
5. Ping your friends
How would a human differentiate between the original source for a piece of content on the web, and a syndicated or splogged copy?
One of the most important factors would almost certainly be the comments.
Robert Scoble asked earlier today if Twitter is Now Reliable?
I have been using Twitter a little more than normal over the last week, maybe it will last. During that time I have been looking at the reliability of consuming Twitter content via various tools (no I haven’t tested everything).
You can add your FriendFeed account to Technorati, and there are various possible methods.
Go to your account on Technorati, and use the URL for your personal lifestream on FriendFeed to start the claim process.
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.
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.
I have always tried to give them equal coverage, and whatever financial benefit I gain from working a little closer with Blogcatalog behind the scenes I try not to influence my opinion. 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.
