You can now get a daily or weekly email digest for anybody's feed on FriendFeed. You'll get a daily or weekly email with the most popular posts from that person's feed. To get the email, click the "Email/IM" link at the top of anyone's feed, and select the "Best of day" or "Best of week" email option.

Thanks Bret! :) - Matt Ruiz
Thanks to Kevin for doing a great design for what turned out to be a more complex set of UI options than we had originally anticipated, and thanks to Tudor for implementing the email backend. - Bret Taylor
Great! Thanks! Love FF! - Scott Monaco
I now get the FriendFeed Feedback posts as a Best of Day email so it doesn't fill up my feed, but I don't miss feedback. I also set up a "Best of Day" email for my "Technology people" friend list so I get a pretty good overview of tech news every day via email. - Bret Taylor
This is a really cool idea Bret, I wish you can make that an RSS feed option as well. I'd be much more likely to read summaries in RSS than in email. - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
Lovely. Thanks guys. - Mitchell Tsai
Casey: Thanks for the tip. What's the 7 before the "?" mean in the URL? The number of likes or replies needed to be included? - manielse (Mark Nielsen)
this is killer, the random influx of email during the day was kinda getting fail-ish. I love the daily digest. - Drew Lucas
Very cool! Any way to get archives of previous months? (especially helpful for those of us who leave the internet for weeks at a time...) - Mitchell Tsai
WOW. that's really helpful! - K.D.
Looks like a great addition for those who are not embedded on the site. Nice intro. - Louis Gray
Cool! - Josh Haley
Ahsan: it is somewhat random right now when the emails are sent, but we built in the backend capability to control what time they are sent, and we plan on exposing that control to users in the future. Right now, it is kind of random - sorry! - Bret Taylor
Cool! can i get a daily or weekly email digest for the "Saved searches"? - 0M0M from email
This will be incredibly useful. Thanks to all involved in the design and execution. - Kathy Fitch
Nice addition! - Michael Fidler
But what exactly is "Best"? Is it anything that has a certain number of likes/comments? - Laura Norvig
@Bret LOL THAT WAS MY PROJECT! I will release it tomorrow. But you've also did it and killed my friendfeed application **sigh** But mine has multi-reporting weekly-daily-monthly at the same time and adjustable entry count! - Alp
@Bret please consolidate me or I won't code new apps with you api! :-) - Alp
Alp: we were not trying to withhold data. Later today the documentation will be updated to reflect the ability to obtain "Best of" for users. The feed id will be USERNAME/summary/N (similar to "Best of" for lists) - Benjamin Golub
Hi Ben, that is pretty funny, I tried that URL earlier today to see if it has been secretly released :) - Paul Kinlan
Bret: While Twitter struggle to keep their fail whale under control, you guys are developing stuff like this. Amazing - Thanks! - Jim Connolly
awesome feature, this will be highly useful for my corporate group ideas / content sharing; projects, etc.... THANK YOU :) - Susan Beebe
Great work. I especially like that it works on lists too. - Meryn Stol
my inbox might say different, but I like that :-) - Dobromir Hadzhiev
Wow, this is really neat! And it links into the idea I expressed earlier, re: reducing signup friction / enabling limited guest privileges. Imagine if I could embed one of my FF rooms on my personal web site, and enable people to subscribe to that feed by e-mail with just a couple of clicks... rather than saying "you can get e-mail notifications but you have to sign up for Friendfeed first." "sign up" -- though admirably lightweight on FF -- is still a huge barrier. - Adam Lasnik
is there a love button cause I dont like this option I LOVE this option..great work guys - (jeff)isageek
Three options I would like (1) Can I select "top 100" instead of "top 30"? (2) Could I select both "best of day" and "best of week"? (3) How about older timeperiods? I'd love to get an e-mail with stuff from last week or Mar 2009? Start & end dates? Anything to help me read FriendFeed off-line would be great since I spend long periods off-line at festivals (especially during summer time) or overseas. - Awesome job guys! - Mitchell Tsai
So this works on groups too, cool! But we still cannot see Best of for groups on the site on friends lists. :-( I have several friends lists that include just groups and when I select to view the best of the page it's empty (even though if I got to the individual best of for those groups there are entries there). - Kol Tregaskes
does anyone know of a web service that can do this? (I'm thinking weekly email updates of my favorite feeds/people) I don't think there's anything like friendfeed .. - Franc, a rememberer
That's a cool feature - Xitong Liu
Emails no longer get sent except for Subscriptions. The last non-sub email I recieved was July 15th, 2011. - Not Me
I still get them. - AJ Batac

I was going to put a bandolier on the bunneh and have it say "VIVA LA REVOLUCION!!" but the bunneh was too small. Seriously, though: that bunneh with the carrot bandolier from the PETA ad? PURE WIN. - FFing Enigma
Bunnehs. Ho! Also, the word bandolier seems underutilized. Oh. right: :D - Micah
NOPE. - Steven Perez
embrace the bunneh, Steven. you know you want to... - holly #ravingfangirl

Sinéad O’Connor’s open letter to Miley Cyrus
"Whether we like it or not, us females in the industry are role models and as such we have to be extremely careful what messages we send to other women. The message you keep sending is that its somehow cool to be prostituted … its so not cool Miley … its dangerous. Women are to be valued for so much more than their sexuality. We aren’t merely objects of desire. I would be encouraging you to send healthier messages to your peers … that they and you are worth more than what is currently going on in your career. Kindly fire any motherfucker who hasn’t expressed alarm, because they don’t care about you." - AJ Batac from Bookmarklet
but will M S still make as much money if she starts listening to a this short hair woman? - ؛ patrick
That's an assumption that she needs more money. I don't she does at this point. - AJ Batac
I don't think it's specific to her. Greed is a human nature. I'm sure anyone in that position would need more money too. - ؛ patrick
She looks like a Bene Genesserit. - Akiva from iPhone

Nice hash bang, Kevin. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Sparky, I know of that term only from the jargon file. I never actually heard someone call it that in seriousness. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Inspired by Derrick's post: - Stephen Mack from iPhone
From wikipedia: "Beginning in the 1960s, telephone engineers have attempted to coin a special name for this symbol, with variant spellings including octothorp, octothorpe, octathorp, octotherp, octathorpe, and octatherp,[2] none of which has become widely accepted." - Brian Johns
What's the null and identity hash tag then? - Todd Hoff
# = le dièse - Adriano
Pound! - AJ Batac
Strangely, Mo, only you have ever used that tag. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I fear the battle is lost. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
tag# - Johnny from iPhone
I'd call it a pound sign, outside of computer stuff. (Although, reading the Wikipedia essay, "number sign" is also reasonable. Or just Shift-3.) - Walt Crawford
This is not a #pipe - Victor Ganata from iPhone

For Americans, yet ‘another mass shooting’ -
For Americans, yet ‘another mass shooting’
"And in the last year and a half: at the movie theater in Aurora, Colo., where a gunman killed 12 people and wounded almost 60 others last July. Then, two weeks later on Aug. 5, a white supremacist shot and killed six people attending religious ceremonies at the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin–Oak Creek in Milwaukee. There’s the September 2012 shooting rampage at a manufacturer in Minneapolis, Minn., that claimed the lives of six people, including the gunman who learned he was losing his job. And the one at a mall in Portland, Ore., on Dec. 11 that killed two people and injured one. Three days later, 20 first graders and six educators were killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn, in a tragedy that remains raw on the national conscious. More than 50 mass shootings have occurred during the last four years, totaling more than one per month, according to a study compiled by Mayors Against Illegal Guns. An average of six people died at each one." - AJ Batac from Bookmarklet
I'm taking the position that if you support guns, unlimited guns as a right, then you need to come up with an alternative solution to the problem. You don't get to say that guns don't kill people. If people kill people, then what can be done? It is your problem, and you don't get to just protect your own interests, you get to come up with an alternative if guns will be an absolute right. Not just complaining about TV, rap music, poor people, or Obama, but actual solutions so people stop dying en mass. - Eric - Watch Me Now

New FriendFeed Logo.

That will turn it around! - Morton Fox
It would be awesome if the logo could actually be changed for just a little while. But, could Yahoo! sue based on the use of the exclamation mark? - Joe - Systems Analyst
