Spice up your room with feeds

Rooms have become incredibly popular since we launched the feature a few weeks ago. Based on your feedback, room administrators can now import sites directly into a room:

To see it in action, check out the Obamamania room, which Ana connected to the official Obama accounts on Twitter, Flickr, YouTube, Digg, and more.

So go ahead: pull in some photos to your family room, create a snarky side-channel for your local newspaper, or bring all your favorite celebrity blogs together in one place for easier fawning.

Now that we have room service, we hope you'll enjoy your stay at FriendFeed even more.

I'm attempting to create a FriendFeed room composed of posts from doctors on Twitter. This should work great, but a major problem is that when Twitter feeds are displayed in a room, it doesn't say who wrote the post. Instead, it says "X messages from Twitter." This feature would be more useful if it displayed the Twitter user's name. Is there a way to do that? (Thank you.)

I've tried but I just cant work out how to add an arbitrary RSS feed to Friendfeed :(

Have I misunderstood this post? I assumed it meant I'd be able to add a feed for a particular tag in my delicious account (not just the whole account) or a self-hosted wordpress blog to a Room - if I knew the feeds URL.

But I can't find the interface to do that. Where did I go wrong?

Thanks for any help with this.

Hi Angus, To add an RSS feed to a FriendFeed room you can select "Share something" followed by "Import your stuff". Then Select the Blog link and insert the feed url. Hope this helps and if you have any more questions feel free to email us at feedback@friendfeed.com
