Big news today, Facebook has acquired FriendFeed. Overall this is a huge win for Facebook, and a super smart buy. But what happens to FriendFeed?
I’ve been an active user since its inception, honestly, I really love the platform. However FriendFeed is a geeky toy, not something the mainstream is likely to go gaga over. It’s just too techie. Normal people want to simply consume content, not program feeds and build aggregated streams. Normal people like those on Facebook for example. So if you can somehow merge the right tech with the masses, you’ll have something really compelling. Best of luck to both teams and congrats all around.
But what is to become of FriendFeed.com? It remains for now but its future is uncertain. I present to you a terrifying look into the the Facebook inspired future. Click to enlarge, if you so dare.
