Hey, FriendFeed users: Interested in getting InformationWeek headlines and TechWeb TV videos delivered to your feed? Get them now by friending InformationWeek on FriendFeed.We've had a FriendFeed account delivering our article and blog headlines for about a week now; this morning, we added the TechWeb TV video channel to the mix. It took all of about 10 seconds. We're already uploading all our videos to the TechWeb TV YouTube channel. YouTube provides public feeds of users' content. I simply told FriendFeed that I wanted to add a YouTube account to our InformationWeek feed, told FriendFeed what the TechWeb TV account name is (it's "techwebtv," duh), and FriendFeed did the rest.

I really like FriendFeed. It provides a single control panel from which you can view all your friends' activity on about 35 different social networking services: Twitter, YouTube, Flickr, Digg, del.icio.us, blogs, Google Reader shared items, StumbleUpon, etc., etc., etc. You can follow your friends' feeds, and they can follow yours. I wrote up my first impressions of FriendFeed last week.

My personal account is Mitch Wagner. Follow me and I'll follow you back.
