A couple days ago I noticed that FriendFeed added comments, meaning that you can comments on items that appear in the friends' feeds. Here's what it looks like:

friendfeed comments

That's pretty cool.

Basically, it means if you looking at my friendfeed, you could comment on a given item or indicate that you like it with a single click.

And if you haven't seen FriendFeed, it's a service that takes the Facebook activity stream idea and implements it across a bunch of services, including Google Reader, blogs, del.icio.us, Digg, Flickr, Furl, Twitter, Reddit, Netflix, and more.

I suppose there will be a standard way to syndicate and aggregate this stuff someday--probably something like Atom or RSS. But until then, it seems that FriendFeed has the lead in this area.

Also noted: the new FriendFeed bookmarklet

Nice service but I prefer escaloop.com - it is a quick and streight forward tool doing the same.

Looks like the first step in that direction has already been taken. Moveable type has an open source project called Action Streams, which looks remarkably similar to Friendfeed (see the third screenshot)
