Well....I suppose so. It depends on your definition of a social network. Its main purpose is to collect all your online activity and bring it together under one umberella and also to monitor your friends online activity. If you want to call that a social network then it is one. :-)

Never heard about FriendFeed either, but I'm not such an active blogger like yourself. However I do recognize myself in your situation. I'm a student informatics at university and I find that not many people know what informatics is. They usually think of their local computer guy fixing their Windows, instead of an actual field of science and mathematics. It's easier to say "I study chemistry" or "I study biology", because most people have an idea about what those fields of science are. Explaining what informatics is, is another story. Most of the time I just have to tell the technophobes "I work with computers". :p

Never heard of this, FriendFeed. I might make use of it yet. And I know where you're coming from. Whenever I tell people I spend my spare time blogging and what not, they look at me as though I'm a freak. I might be, but that's not the point.

To each his own right? :P But the idea of creating imaginary friends is somehow freaky. Why call it imaginary if it will just be another amalgam of feeds you want to keep track of in the web?

FriendFeed's a godsend. I used to maintain a web page that was nothing but badges and links to all the places to find me online. FriendFeed replaced that and more. I don't check the feeds coming down from my friends on there very often. Usually I'm busy enough with information coming through from Twitter or my RSS feeds. If those run dry though, I'm sure to find more information to digest on FriendFeed.
