LAUGH OUT LOUD! Woman accidentally uses Facebook status updater, instead of messaging system, to thank a man for the incredible sex they recently had! HAHAHA! CLICK IMAGE TO READ
You wish. People are actually stupid like that. - Giulia B.
Oh come on, Dark... don't be THAT guy ;-) - Brad Williamson
This is way too funny. - Vaughn from BuddyFeed
ROFL!!! Someone look these people up on FB and see if they're real... - rowlikeagirl
I like Jeff's comment: "Nice" - Wayne Smallman
So it says her status is "Engaged". Still true? - That's So CAJ!
probably hacked as her sister said - Cihan Cepni
Funny, yet tragic. - Mahendra (SkepticGeek)
I still can't stop laughing. It is sweet in many ways and it is a private and intimate exchange but come on! Next time I might suggest some more discretion ! lol - Kevin J Hatton
ahahahaha her status now is "it's complicated" :)) - Roberto
Michael has won lots of new followers after this... - Alexandre Gamela from twhirl
Yeah, an exploit in one of FB dating applications was used by 4chan to bring some 'entertainment' to Facebook... http://www.reddit.com/r... - Marcos
this is a good reason to make high attention when we choose web services that can access to our FB password (specially a dating application) - Roberto
Ah. The "love cave" bit did seem a bit much. Not cool, 4chan. I wonder if potential employers can appreciate the subtlety of a situation like this? Tracy didn't write this, yet it has her name and picture on it. Can Facebook remove all traces of a hacked account like this one and then set a person up with a fresh one? (I doubt it.) - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
Ah, 4chan. - j1m
:o, burn - chaz2b
Times like these, I'm glad I'm not on Facebook, though Twitter has its own problems. - John (bird whisperer)
...you had me at "mounted." yeah, real people talk about f**king like that... in the 1950s! .LOLz! - .LAG liked that
And this is why I don't have FB - WarLord
You can have FB without making a fool of yourself, actually. - Giulia B.
Yup. Hacked and they really went to town...not just Facebook. http://thenextweb.com/2009... - Zee.
She was hacked by 4Chan. Read this http://thecoffeedesk.com/news... - Chris Martin
"The unnamed Christian dating service I mentioned earlier had an exploit in the website that allowed the entire list of usernames and passwords for the site to be exposed." WTF? Uncool. - Andrew C (✔)
If you're responsible for a website in 2009 and you store plaintext passwords, you should not only be fired, but not allowed to touch a computer professionally for half a decade. - Andrew C (✔)
bcrypt, people, bcrypt - Jim Norris
Relationship status engaged hahahaha - Joe Dawson
Burada ilk defa böyle gülerek yorum yapmak istiyorum müsaadenizle.. muauhaauauahuahuaua - el burrito
Hacked account or not, this made my day. :-) - Mark Davidson from BuddyFeed
yazık yaa.. sağlam "hack"lemişler.. http://www.facebook.com/jesuslu... - Hürol Öztürk
oh my gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwd....LOL...I should feel pity, but I just can't .....XD - Prosey BUTTONS!
Its call disccretion lol lol - Rob Cairns
I still think the picture is funny - in the sense of how NOT to use the update box. I'm torn a bit - because I feel that people should be responsible about passwords and what online services they use, so she holds some of the responsibility. But Scott's right. This was a 4chan hack-job, and should come down. Her privacy has been compromised - even if the image does still make me laugh. - Prosey BUTTONS!
Oh that is super sad and funny all the same time, whoops! - Susan Beebe from iPhone
I dunnoI'm gonna un-like now that I hear that it was a hack I think personal details should be redacted or it should come down #justsayin - WarLord
++WarLord. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
Funny, saw this in Reddit yesterday. Now FriendFeed. Content always seems to start in Reddit lately. - Adam Singer
SOME content, Adam.... - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
classic - Kevin Nunez
Why she posting our affair like that? - Outsanity
People, read The previous comments. A Christian Dating site was hacked by some people in 4chan (you can actually download a file with their login and passwords). Many users use The same passwords in many services, that's why some Facebook profiles are now like The one in the picture. Facebook was not hacked. - Gianluca Neri from iPhone
first hint it might be a fake... she commented on the status a minute before she posted it - Sean Reiser
An interesting theory - though the cynical side of me says it is just more wishful thinking. Having been disappointed in the last several keynotes, I'm determined not to get my hopes up this time. - Andy Roth
And you're right to think / feel that way, Andy. It's possible that Apple were working on the concept of a tablet before even the iPhone. Or that the iPhone is an off-shoot of the tablet, in a form factor that was more appropriate for a current market segment of the time (which clearly it is). BTW, I'm the author of the article. - Wayne Smallman
Chris Green
Hello? Just joined Friend Feed, not exactly too sure what i'm supposed to do
What did I just do? - Chris Green
Ahhhh.. so you can comment against each post? - Chris Green
Kurt, you're not wrong. - Wayne Smallman
Chris, you can import your content from all your updates around the Web. (Delicious, Flickr, Twitter, you name it) Then you can have conversations on those items. (Like here) You can also follow other people to see their own items. - Louis Gray
That sounds like it could be a lot of updates, but FriendFeed also lets you hide individual posts, hide specific services, or even hide specific services from individuals. (Like if Kurt updates his Twitter too often, you could hide it). Kurt's right about our promoting some great people here. Reach out if you need help. - Louis Gray
An Excel list of those people we tend to like, current through June, is found here: http://friendfeed.com/louisgr... - Louis Gray
Hey Welcome to FriendFeed Chris. - Matt Ruiz
Welcome - Josh Haley
Hi Chris. Welcome :-) - Rasmus Lauridsen
Well, if you want to be a really awesome FriendFeed user, you subscribe to me and give a "Like" to all of my posts. Just kidding. :) - James Rishabh Mishra
Welcome. Please take a seat and listen to the teacher. - Simon Wicks
You're home, Chris...wipe your feet, bruh. - Thom Kennon
The beauty of friendfeed to me is that its something different to everyone. To some it's a marketing aggregation tool, others its about the community. Others yet again its something entirely different. It's like a sandbox of socialness. - Rasmus Lauridsen
Hi, Chris. Welcome to FF. :) - Ayşe E.
Start by browsing some different people's feeds, and following the ones that look interesting. - Steve Lynch from twhirl
Welcome and dont worry. Friendfeed will assign you a holly path, your destiny has already picked you to join the ultimate body of chosen people. - Burcu Dogan
Welcome aboard, Chris. Perhaps join the FF-Beginners group here: http://friendfeed.com/friendf... - Kol Tregaskes
Also, I have a BIG list of recommended users, let me know if you are interested here: http://ff.im/5IcYN - Kol Tregaskes

Twitter home page design FAIL!
I just took this screenshot. No need for the fancy fade. Either link 'em or lose 'em - Mark Krynsky
I totally agree. I said this the other day and I was decried for even daring to criticize Twitter. - Wayne Smallman
Wayne...nobody is ever free from criticism. My wife reminds me of that daily. Anyone who argues otherwise is an imbecile. - Mark Krynsky
It's a good design meant to lead Twitter away from updating friends to being the world's epicenter of discussion. - Ben Parr
With that said, I do think the fades should be clickable. - Ben Parr
I just can't quite figure out how they didn't manage to go that step further and make them clickable. Why add anything at all if you can't click them? It's bizarre. - Wayne Smallman

I wrote an article last week about the prospect / possibility of immortality, mentioning Brooke specifically. As well as Brooke, there's also the outside possibility that some of the very first microbial life forms ever to appear on Earth could still be alive, 3.8 billion years later. - Wayne Smallman

Time to go sit at a certain picnic table in University Circle and do some real-life social networking.
You mean, face-to-face stuff? Yuk! - Wayne Smallman
Hah! You'd have liked it. And of course you can't fool me, I've seen vid of you out with people...dancing...so I know you visit the real world too. Cheers! - Heidi Cool

You can now choose which of your services you want displayed on your profile page. The option is available at the bottom your services page at https://friendfeed.com/account.... (We will otherwise select five icons to show automatically.)

Thanks to Casey for implementing this. http://friendfeed.com/casey - Bret Taylor
Just to avoid a clutter? Thanks Casey, but wouldn't it be easier to adjust the style (or use a js trick)? (Just suggesting of course) :) - directeur
Excellent addition, thanks! - Aaron Draczynski
Uh, bug. Nasty bug. I can't see some of my services, the box is taller than my screen. You should columnize them or make the list scrollable or something. - Chris Charabaruk
I wish we could choose more than five. :-( - darnell from BuddyFeed
We can still only choose 5? :( - Chris Charabaruk
awesome thanks guys - Alfredo 亜瑠布れっど
Yep, only five for now. We have gotten lots of feedback that the icons became useless when there were too many because you couldn't find the useful profile pages within the countless imported feeds. This lets you choose the few that have the most relevant profile info, but keeps the icon explosion from happening. - Bret Taylor
But I loved the icon explosion!  - darnell from BuddyFeed
I like this, and five is plenty for me to be able to get a sense of someone. thank you! - holly #ravingfangirl
Very cool Thanks! :-) - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
Wow, nice. - Arawak
minor problem: can't save when services exceeds screen size. - AJ Batac
AJ: Ctrl-(mouse scroll wheel). Although, it gets pretty unreadable. - Chris Charabaruk
that needs to be fixed. - Alfredo 亜瑠布れっど
hmmmmm -[ - Chris Loft
Yay! Thanks for the choice =) - FFing Enigma
Again. This is the same issue we had with the Rooms dialogue in the old interface. Didn't anyone check this first? What freakin resolution do the FF devs run at, anyway? LOL - Rahsheen
Rah, I'm 99.7% sure they use portrait mode on their monitors. - AJ Batac
You'll take your five icons...and you'll like it! Thanks for the new feature. - Mark Krynsky
Chris Charabaruk: some of us on macbook pros and other machines don't use scroll wheels. i agree with others that the truncation bug needs to be fixed. and, only five choices defeats the purpose of adding any more. some of us already have more services set up are used to seeing them. don't limit everybody in the process of simplifying it for a few, if it can be helped. thanks. - sɹǝɥʇɐǝɟʞɔɐןq
Bret, Casey, thank you for this. Can you either make the list of services on the new screen either scrollable or in a smaller dialog box with a scroll bar? There's a bug that if you have a lot of services you cannot see the bottom of the list. :-( - Kol Tregaskes
Love this, but can't use it because I use too many services. I can't scroll down the list. - Thomas Hawk
A vertical screensize of 1200 pixels fixes mine. Your mileage may vary. I chose more than 5 services and let FriendFeed pick, presumably the way it can, had i chose less than 5. - John Lam
Ok, I logged on on a PC and used the ctl scroll wheel trick and it worked. - Thomas Hawk
great! I only want to show the most important feeds in my profile; and not clutter my profile with too many feeds that I include - Jeroen De Miranda
Any word on the Iphone FF web? Or any news of an app? I can't see "my" discussions on the Iphone web version. - orionstarr
That's a simple but crucial feature, in my estimation. But if I had to be fussy (which I usually am), the option to (re)order them would be also be good. - Wayne Smallman
agree with wayne. I'd like to draw more attention to my blog, and less to my twitter ;-) - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
+1 Neil - Richard Akerman
Now if we could just select the order they display in - a' la Google Profile. Speaking of Google Profile... is FF planning on adding that to the list of services? - Alexander Grundner
This thread was discussed on the FFundercats (http://www.ffundercats.com/2009...) - Josh Haley
In my top 5 was facebook by default! #friendfeedfail - Jordi Rosell
The services dialog is taller than my screen too. Please make it scrollable. - Morton Fox

I called broccoli trees as a kid, too, WoH =) I love broccoli but rarely cook it: Dave only likes it raw. Crazy kid... - FFing Enigma
Tina, Dave's got the right idea and good that you don't cook it :) Check out the link above that I left for Ian. - Myrna
I understand the loss of nutrition with cooking, but my system processes broccoli much better if it's lightly steamed. - FFing Enigma
Oh yes, definitely-when I was typing I was thinking, hey I don't eat raw broccoli I lightly steam it and then sometimes put in salad. I've even taken supplements for sulforaphane, the compound in broccoli. - Myrna
I make a green juices every morning, and broccoli is part of that, along with whatever else is in season - Mark Conrau

Kol Tregaskes
Friendfeed is the new social network – but you didn't hear it first - Online, Media - The Independent - http://www.independent.co.uk/news...
"Twitter might be the newest new thing for millions of internet users but, for most of Silicon Valley's geekerati, it is Friendfeed (www.friend feed.com) that remains the hottest social networking application. If Twitter is emerging as the Microsoft of the emerging real-time web, then Friendfeed – which unveiled a major upgrade to its interface last week – is akin to Apple in its ability to muster a noisy following of hardcore evangelists." - Kol Tregaskes from Bookmarklet
"Friendfeed is a real-time aggregation service that automatically incorporates updates from Twitter, Facebook, Flickr, YouTube and any other online content published with a RSS feed. More subtle and complex than Twitter, Friendfeed is currently the most ambitious social media application on the internet, particularly in the ways in which it empowers real-time public and private conversation between its subscribers." - Kol Tregaskes
"What is striking about Friendfeed is the passionate responses it elicits from normally sane people. For me and other mainstream users who crave simplicity from their internet tools, it remains an irritatingly over-engineered application, the internet version of Rubik's Cube. And this may explain why Friendfeed has less than 7 per cent of Twitter subscribers. Yet, for Silicon Valley pundits like Robert Scoble, Leo Laporte and Steve Gillmor, Friendfeed represents the next big thing in social media." - Kol Tregaskes
I am *very* happy to see The Independent mention FriendFeed, wow!!! :-D - Kol Tregaskes
Encouraging stuff - hopefully we'll see a few more UK users! - Martin Bryant
Hope so, Martin. The more the merrier. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
More press, allright! - Robert Scoble
Robert, absolutely. The Independent is easily my favourite paper in the UK, so very pleased they've covered FriendFeed. - Kol Tregaskes
Kol: and Andrew Keen, no less! Interesting. Well, friendfeed also got into the Financial Times earlier this week. - Robert Scoble
Robert, good. Hopefully more to come. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Nice to see friendfeed getting some more coverage. - Jim Connolly
Shit, friendfeed will be facebook soon.. - Alp
Alp, well I hope not. ;-) But it would be amazing if they were as big. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Every time I hear someone cite the complexity argument against FriendFeed, I really have to roll my eyes. Here's an excerpt from an article of mine earlier this year: "Twitter makes people lazy. The guys behind Twitter haven’t done enough to make their service more useful. Don’t agree? We routinely use exceptionally complex software each and every day of our business lives. Do we balk... more... - Wayne Smallman
Wayne, some people can get it, some people can't. It's pretty clear Twitter is a lot easy to use than FriendFeed. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
I think that's like saying a wheel is a lot easier to use than a car ;) - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
Further: to get any real value out of twitter, you have to use a 3rd party client and not their web site. Each new one of those is adding complexity to using twitter. - guruvan (Rob Nelson)
More English users would raise the conversation quality, not that it's bad now. It's as if they invented the language or something. - Bruce Lewis from fftogo

LOL. - Zee.
mine appartenly means "bright fame" - so there. - Roberto Bonini
I'll take it: From a surname which meant "little red one" in French. A notable bearer of the surname was the agnostic British philosopher Bertrand Russell (1872-1970), who wrote on many subjects including logic, epistemology and mathematics. He was also a political activist for causes such as pacifism and women's rights. - Russellreno
Mine means "crown". - Steven Perez
bearer of christ... could be true when I look at things. I'm far from religous and in fact despise the notion of church, worship and the subservience involved but I do agree with his core teachings (love and compassion for all). I guess in some way I do bear the ideal of christ. - alphaxion
so i am named after a beheaded saint and a drunk sex maniac. sweet! ;-p - denise
So my name is from a surname which originally came from a place name that meant "broad clearing" - not sure how I should feel about that. - Brad Butner from twhirl
@Mark some of these name lists (especially those on the Internet) I have found to be less than comprehensive. Your name is assumed Latin in origin and derives from Marcus according to Webster's New Book of Facts. A Roman name probably derived from Mars (the roman god) Mars, of course, was known as the god of war. But I prefer to remember that Mark wrote one of the most action-packed gospels of Christ.:) So perhaps we could say that your name means "a person of action" - Melanie Reed

Great content and more relaxed in a way. You don't feel you're missing things if you aren't here all the time. Good stuff gets Liked and Commented and goes right back to the top.
