I disagree. I like facebook. It is a good way for me to keep track of my friends across the world.
(I haven't used Friend Feed before, so I'll look into that now..)
I used sites like myspace for a while, but most of them don't do a very good job of letting you interact with people and even worse of a job keeping you updated on what's going on.
facebook shows you most of the relevant updates you care about right when you login and does a good job of notifying of when there is an update to something you might want to see.
You don't have to surf to all of your friends profiles every day to keep track of them, anything they post is going to show up on your wall when you login.
I like that.
So what are my other options for keeping track of people I care about? Use my phone/email contact list to send them an email or call them on the phone every month?
Nah. That's the only way of doing it and it's not very efficient :p
