FriendFeed adds personalized recommendations

I was just on a two-week vacation in Peru, and when I got back, there was so much stuff in my FriendFeed that I couldn't sort through it all. I just wanted to see the most interesting stuff I'd missed.

That's why I'm happy to announce we just launched a feature that helps you find the best stuff your friends have shared recently without sifting through your entire feed. Underneath the search box on your FriendFeed homepage, you now have links to see the "best of" FriendFeed from the past day, week, or month according to the people you're subscribed to.

The results are entirely personalized to you. We figure out what content was most interesting in your network based on your friends' comments and "likes" and other signals.

If you only have a couple of minutes to check FriendFeed, and you only want to see the most interesting entries, check out the best of the past day instead of your main feed.

The feature is a work in progress, so we're eager to hear your feedback in the FriendFeed Feedback room.

love it. It might also cool to have links for "everyone." in addition to those in your social circle. It might be interesting to see what people outside your social circle find interesting. It might also be cool to see a "last 6 hours tab" and finally it would be super cool to see this list page, especially on the week/month view.

You say: "The results are entirely personalized to you."

But without explicitely asking me, I call this babysitting :)

My day list includes at least 4 entries written by people who I've otherwise hidden to reduce the noise. It'd be nice if my "personalized" results actually paid attention to things I personally set already.

@Mike: That's exactly what i'm saying. They're not providing the best for you, they're providing the popular items. And that's somthing different.

@FriendFeed Staff : Please take a look at my friendly rant here: http://blog.feedego.com/2008/06/dear-friendfeed-youre-missing-thing.html

Nice work. I'd love to have this option on the "everyone" page (sort of a Digg / Techmeme for FF) and the "me" page (to quickly see my content that's generating the most buzz on FF).
