FriendFeed API Apps Are Here

Hot on the heels of the release of the FriendFeed API, developers are already rolling out applications for all you FriendFeed addicts!


Benjamin Golub, developer of Google Reader Shared Items aggregator RSSmeme, has released the first FriendFeed API application: FriendFeedStats.

What Does It Do?

FriendFeed stats gives you a statistical overview of how any user uses FriendFeed. You can view stats by hours, days, months, and services. For example, I have a total of 294 entries on FriendFeed, which FriendFeedStats also displays for your viewing pleasure. Here are screenshots of the breakdown of my stats:

Hours and Services





FriendFeed WordPress Plugin

On that note, Glenn Slaven is working on an awesomesauce WordPress Plugin for FriendFeed. It displays a notice and link right above your comments that lets you know how many people on FriendFeed have "liked" the post and how many comments there are surrounding it! Not sure how long it takes to update, but at this point, I don’t think too many of us would complain about it. This is definitely the highlight of the day for me and I’m really looking forward to this release. Go Glenn!!
