Submission + - Facebook Gets News Feeds Patent (techticles.com)

Techticles.com writes: Facebook gets awarded with the patent for News Feeds which is gigantic in the social networking, social computing, and digital collaboration.

Facebook definitely scored a home run on this patent which means they can start having their lawyers breathe down the necks of MySpace, Google, Twitter, and yes even Microsoft. Microsoft may not have a public social networking goliath but they are definitely utilizing news feeds and promoting it together with their social computing platform on SharePoint 2007, and now SharePoint 2010.
