Starting in 2009, most of my social media activity was in FriendFeed. I’ve written about it before; it was far better than Facebook, Twitter, and any other site in terms of features — and the community was tightknit and supportive, especially after Facebook acquired the site in 2011, and development ceased (causing the user base to slowly migrate away.
Today, FriendFeed died. Facebook pulled the plug.
There is a replacement site, Frenf.It, created by an Italian FF user known as Senape, and it offers a lot of promise. But when FF’s shutdown was announced a month ago, I resolved to return to blogging. In the past I was too much of a perfectionist and I let good post ideas languish (or just posted them to FF instead). I’ll try to just dash off quick posts here more frequently.
