How to Use FriendFeed to Keep Track of Your Friends

Even if your friends don’t use FriendFeed, you can still use this service to keep track of their information. You first need to set up your own FriendFeed account. Once you do this, you need to create an “imaginary friend.” Don’t worry — it’s not as sad or lonely as it sounds.


  1. Log into your FriendFeed account.

  2. Click the Friends link in the upper-right corner and select the Imaginary tab.

  3. Click the Create Imaginary Friend button, give your friend a name, and click Create.

  4. Click the service you want to add and enter the feed for that service.

You can always come back to this friend later and add or remove services. That way, you can keep track of your friends even if they don’t use FriendFeed.
