When I heard about FriendFeed I jumped to it like the site was giving out money. The service is pretty good, the API (which I just looked at very briefly) looks sturdy, and the idea is amazing. The ability to aggregate all the different services I'm registered to as well as this blog (and other blogs, if I had them) is a must have for the average geek.
But that just scratches the surface of FriendFeed. There is a whole concept of community, sharing and commenting behind it that is very appealing. I will use it some more and probably write a short review sometime soon.
The thought that hit me when I saw all my online activities reflected on FriendFeed was: gosh, I no longer have any secrets. Then it hit me.
I don't happen to live on the safest place on earth, thus my natural thought was: what if someone used all or part of the information I disclose to their own advantage and against me or my family. Chances are slim, but I was surprised to find myself thinking in such terms.
I usually laugh at people who are scared of losing privacy to the net, but now I can relate a little bit more. I guess I'll try to keep on the safe side using common sense and posting only general stuff just in case. So don't expect me to tweet stuff such as "I'll be cashing a big chunk of money today at 3"
