This is a great example of the power of collective intelligence. When you strap a search engine on top of a tool like friendfeed you get to sift through all of the items of a whole bunch of networks using filters of all sorts. What a great tool!
FriendFeed, a cross-network activity aggregator built by ex-Googlers and more fun to use than the phrase “cross-network activity aggregator” might imply, launched a powerful new search tool today. Want to discover particularly interesting conversations or people in your networks? Want to pick out just the noisiest conversations online about your brand? Want to find some really crazy stuff that’s only discoverable through FriendFeed? The investigative possibilities that FriendFeed now offers are quite impressive, if you can bring just a little creativity to your search query construction.
