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.

You can see all of your email settings at - Bret Taylor
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. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
I still get them. - AJ Batac
I get these every day. - Me
I still get it - AJ Batac
*jealous* I no longer get anything but subscription emails. - Bruce Lewis
Following US Politics that way ever since and the emails always went through: so happy this never went off course and kept a valuable record of these threads. - Zu from AOD

Thanks for sharing!! - Keith Kesier
Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
That is awesome Kamilah. The robot is Mo right? - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
Yes, Mo asked to participate in the Ass Roasting. I wasn't really serious about it until Mo asked. Then I had to make it exist. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
LMAO, Kamilah so awesome, but you missed Sean's half-stache and goatee. Those would have made it even more awesome. - OCoG of FF, Jimminy
aw, shoot. I checked, but I wasn't sure about the status of his facial hair. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
This is THE. BEST. THING. ON. THE. INTERNET. EVER. *weeps for joy* - MoTO Boychick Devil

LOL! Get him, Mo! Mo never misses his target! :) - directeur
The 1st pic of Audrey sneezing is so great. And I love "Pew Pew Pew." Great stuff, Kamilah! - Ayşe E.
*dumbstruck by the awesome* - Mo Kargas
Kamilah...I think I love you :) - Mo Kargas
I see the happy sloth! Cool! - Anne Bouey
Excellent! - Kol Tregaskes
So what will Kamilah, Princess Wave, sell her sketchbook for? It should be in the FriendFeed museum. - Louis Gray
Unholy mother of God! That's bad @$$ - Adrian
oh, though sketch is good, ever had an exhibition? - testbeta
I always knew it. The first time I saw Mo Kargas on FF, I knew he could roast asses with his eyes. - Joshua
Thanks, everyone :) I don't know that I can sell the original sketchbook, it's really my personal journal. As I say from time to time, though, my goal is to do some larger drawings and paintings, and eventually I hope to sell those, I just need, like, 48 hours in a day to get everything done... it's going to happen somehow, soon. I have had some of my work exhibited at various times,... more... - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
Kamilah, you're here! You should subscribe to me. :) - EricaJoy
What happens if I subscribe to you, Erica? Is something in particular happening over on your feed? - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
Nothing interesting happening on my feed but I bet $100 I could make your day. :) - EricaJoy
Really, now? Alright then, I'll bite... - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
What is it about giant robots? I dunno. But they are full of win. Case in point: - MoTO Boychick Devil
By the way Kamilah? I want the MoBot on a t-shirt.... Pleeeaaaasssseeee??? - MoTO Boychick Devil
Yes, giant robots are made of win. I dunno, Barry... last time I tried to make a t-shirt, people got all excited but no-one bought it (DYSP!). I might just make a design but not bother to try setting up a Spreadshirt (or whichever one it was that I used) for it. I'll have to see. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
Can you do pre-oders through paypal? - MoTO Boychick Devil
I could do that somehow, I guess. I've taken payments through PayPal before. I wonder what pose the MoBot should be in? Have some source material I could work from? - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
Kamilah, you are truly Princess Wave! Awesome, totally awesome! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Kamilah - this very well might be the art post that makes best of day and becomes part of a meta-sketch project. :-) - Katy S
Ya, JUST for this drawing, Sean. :P And Mo. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
Robots are hot stuff right now - you should add this to the Spreadshirt marketplace! - spreadshirtcom
*another bump* because I love it so. - MoTO Boychick Devil
this is great. i especially love the sloth! - edythe
Yay! Sneezy. :) - Rochelle
BUMPAGE - Mo Kargas
*bump* because it still makes me laugh and because I wish I had laser eyes like Mo... PEW PEW PEW! - MoTO Boychick Devil
and because Haggis' word balloon says "ow may ass!" - MoTO Boychick Devil
*bump* for MOTO - Katy S
Does this make it bump? - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
I've got still a few Google Wave invites... anyone? - Jemm
I love this so - MoTO Boychick Devil from Android
THANKS KAMILAH! - MoTO Boychick Devil
:) Wow, how times have changed... - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)

@Swoytek if iPhone wins, we win. If Android wins, we win. I prefer Apple and Google over everyone else, so this is great, period.

Jesse, re Windows 7: (I already wrote that post) - Louis Gray
Yeah, much better than WinMo 6.5...which is horrid. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
That doesn't say why you prefer Apple and Google over everyone else Louis - Jesse Stay
Jesse, let it go. I don't intend to debate with you, my good sir. - Louis Gray
If you're not confused I know I am - not trying to debate. Just don't understand all the different "something's better than something else" points that you keep changing your mind on. No offense (to either of you), but you're starting to sound like Scoble. - Jesse Stay
Jesse, there is no reason to be confused. I am a Mac person who uses Android. I prefer Apple hardware and OS. I prefer Google software and their mobile OS. Done. If this doesn't make sense, then we have issues with cognitive analysis. - Louis Gray
In terms of "keep changing my mind on", that doesn't make any sense. I have switched from iPhone to Android and just explained that. Nothing else has changed. - Louis Gray
Changing minds is good. But why people "like" or "trust" companies is beyond me. These are corporations, all you can trust is that they will do what is good for their senior management and quarterly shareholder position. I'm not sure where the size limit it where the care for the customer goes out the window, but I think Apple and Google are past it. Not that in the "phone" business there are any "trustable" players :S - Iphigenie

It’s official. No one fights spam harder, smarter, or better than Yahoo! Mail. -
"The Fraunhofer Institute, an independent research firm, found that Yahoo! Mail users saw the least amount of spam out of the five providers tested, with nearly 40% less spam than Hotmail and 55% less spam than Gmail – meaning Gmail users in the study saw more than twice as much spam as Yahoo! Mail users." - Simon from Bookmarklet
Had me a little surprised but then I saw another post from someone who had read the actual report: "Apparently, the study was sponsored by Microsoft, and Yahoo's conclusions are misleading.

California's government: Looking for waste | The Economist
"Alas, there seems to be much less of this waste than the politicians like to claim, at least as far as head counts are concerned. As of 2008, California had 108 state employees for every 10,000 state residents. Only Florida and Illinois have fewer state workers relative to population. [...] the surprise is the state’s prison system, which has more than doubled its personnel over the past two decades, growing four times faster than the rest of state government to become its second-largest employer. And yet Ms Whitman has promised to support all the “tough on crime” policies that have caused the booms in incarceration and prison-hiring." - Simon from Bookmarklet
