New features and services courtesy of Fix-it Friday

Another Friday, another "fix-it day"! Now you'll see:

  • Improved Tumblr support – images, audio, and most videos from your Tumblr feed will now automatically show up in your FriendFeed
  • Links to a user's comments and likes by clicking on the stats in their mini-profile (which appear when you hover over a user's name)
  • A Custom RSS/Atom feed service. You can still import any RSS/Atom feed by adding it as a "Blog", but this new option gives you a couple of additional customizations. This works particularly well if you want to import a feed from a bookmarking or microblogging service, since you can post each entry as a message (with no link) or pull in a description, which gets posted as the entry's first comment.

And in case you haven't seen our "Add services" page lately, check it out. We've just increased it by 22.92%. In other words, we've just added 11 new services!

You added a new Custom RSS/Atom feed, but still nothing for photoblogs ? I was hoping...

It could be nice to have something for Photoblogs where the photo in the post is shown in a thumbnail, mostly like the Flickr service.

My 2¢.

Just hooked up my LJ account; doesn't seem to bring comments I make to other LJs tho... and now I need to take down my LJ's RSS. Thanks otherwise.

Thanks for adding "hatena" as your new features.
We have gone through it and everything was working well,
but we found that one of our service called "Hatena Haiku (http://h.hatena.ne.jp)" has not been added yet.
We would appreciate if you correct it for us.

It's great to see friendfeed supporting Chinese internet service Baidu space, but I don't think most baidu space users visit friendfeed too much, it will be more exciting that ff can support www.douban.com.Thanks!

It's nice to have Custom RSS/Atom feed support. But all of the other services have an icon that is particular to the service. When you set something up as a cumstom feed, FriendFeed should grab the favicon from that site and use it. That's the way that wink.com works. Expanding support for custom feeds would mean that fewer specific services would need to be supported.

Now if you'll just add tag support, I'll be happy. ^_^
