We finally found workarounds for the issues FriendFeeders were having with del.icio.us. Del.icio.us bookmarks are back in FriendFeed, and we are actively following the del.icio.us update stream, so your new bookmarks should appear on FriendFeed within a few minutes of your adding them.
We also started monitoring pinging services for a number of other services, which means that you will receive updates from Twitter and blogs much faster than before. If you would like to ensure that your blog posts appear in FriendFeed as quickly as possible, just check that your blogging software is configured to ping the Google Ping Service or Weblogs.com. Many blogging services, such as Blogger, do this by default, so FriendFeed may already be receiving your pings.
If your blog isn't pinging any of these services, don't worry, we'll still find your new blog posts as before.
