I don't see the options link or anything that says "hide entries like this." And on top of that, clicking "edit/add" under settings to add services just takes me back to the friend feed. At this point, even if I liked FriendFeed and wanted to use it, it doesn't work. :(

What Will said. =)

The "hide entries like this" is really nice. I turned off all of my stuff and stuff like your blog where I already subscribe to the direct RSS feed. That way, as Will said, I pick up stuff that you do that might not end up on your blog or Google Reader shared items.

And I hear you about the micro-blogging when you are not on the service. Following someone's Twitter when you can't reply makes it seem rather noisy. I know my Jaiku feed is really only useful if you are curious about what I am up to at the moment (which seems to be only my mother at this point =).

Hey man,

I wouldn't give up just yet. :) I have a few things to say:

* The UI is crappy, but you *can* tell friendfeed to not bother with certain data sources. Click on the "options" link next to a twitter post (for example), and then you can say "Hide entries like this."

* I find the website much more useful than the RSS feed of my friendfeed.

* I don't know where I read this, but others have already asked about removing your own posts from the feed and they're working on it.

* The overall friend feed is interesting for finding random new stuff, but I mostly watch your feed and those of a couple other close friends, in Google Reader. It lets me catch things that you do online that I wouldn't otherwise see, and I really do like the "comment" and "like" functionality.

FriendFeed has just hired a great UI person away from Google, so hopefully they'll be sanding out these rough edges.

(Why do I sound like such a fanboy?!)

HTH,
Will
