Dan asked me on Facebook last night if we’d be writing something about it on NTZ. I’m not sure there’s much to say that hasn’t been covered by ReadWriteWeb. Basically, we can expect to see more of FriendFeed’s features being pulled into Facebook, even though the two will remain separate entities for now.
If I were inclined to break it down to levels beyond scientific, I’d follow this line of thinking:
- Facebook owns FriendFeed now, which mean Google doesn’t.
- Neither does Twitter.
- Twitter may be less inclined to flood FriendFeed with tweets now, since it seems like that’s where most FriendFeed conversations start.
- Google may make another run at Twitter to counter Facebook’s move. And the price just went up.
