Interesting in light of how, just recently, Facebook cut off Friendfeed’s access. It had also cut RSS out of its own API. Clearly, Facebook has recognized the value of RSS … but only if it can control the profits.
Facebook has acquired FriendFeed, we’ve learned. We’re gathering details now.
At this point details on the acquisition are still very sparse, but it’s clearly a good match. Over the last year or so, Facebook has “borrowed” quite a few features that FriendFeed popularized, including the ‘Like’ feature and an emphasis on real-time news updates.
