Keeping it real with the FriendFeed Real-time API

If your application uses the FriendFeed API, you can now show FriendFeed updates to your users in real-time using the new FriendFeed Real-time API. We're providing access to the same underlying technology that's used by the real-time view on FriendFeed to all FriendFeed developers.

The API supports polling for updates as well as long-polling, in which responses will only return when updates are available. This technique should work particularly well for desktop notification applications.

For full technical details, check out our API documentation. For comments, concerns, or suggestions, let us know at
