New options for the FriendFeed notifier

We've been listening to your feedback about the FriendFeed notifier, and we've added some new options. Now you can get a notification whenever someone comments on one of your posts. There's also an option to only receive notifications for comments from your friends.

These are the same options available for our IM notifications, another great way to stay up-to-date on all the activity in your FriendFeed.

If you haven't already tried it, give the notifier a spin at: and let us know what you think in the FriendFeed feedback room..

Choose the Red Pill

Back in the late '90s, I was impatient for Star Wars Episode I to finally be released, but a few months before its release my friends and I distracted ourselves by seeing a new flick called 'The Matrix'. Sitting in the front row of the theater, we had no idea what we were in for as we ratcheted our heads from left to right, reading the green phosphor text pouring across Neo's VDT. Who would have thought back then that a film released just under the nose of the most anticipated movie of all time would have such an impact?

Today, a decade later, Neo, Trinity and Morpheus still stand as a seminal work of mind-body philosophy and kick-ass cinematography. To all our FriendFeed friends who spend time jacked in to our own matrix, we salute you.

Norouzet Pirouz! Happy Nowruz!

FriendFeed has always been about user-generated content. Now we have our first user-generated logo!

Shayan, a FriendFeed fan, alerted us to this logo in celebration of Nowruz, the first day of the Iranian Solar Year, and we just couldn't pass up the festive opportunity.

We always appreciate suggestions and ideas, feature or logo-wise. Share yours in the FriendFeed Feedback room or email us at

And of course, may your New Years be healthy and happy and good.

If you like being in the know whenever there are updates to your FriendFeed, you'll probably enjoy our new desktop notifier. It's a super-fast download and takes just two clicks to install.

You can choose to get updates from your Home feed or any of your Friends lists. Clicking on the little window takes you to FriendFeed for easy viewing and commenting. And I love being able to drag the window to anywhere on my desktop.
