FriendFeed Updates API with Real-time, Oauth, File Attachments and Sharing Options

Social media aggregator FriendFeed has updated its API with a bunch of features that are relevant to current online social and search behavior. The updates are:

  • Real-time APIs – Get feeds in real-time by sing long polling. This includes search.
  • Flexible sharing options – Allows direct messages and sharing to multiple feeds.
  • File attachments – Attach images, pdfs, spreadsheets, etc.
  • OAuth support – Use this to let people sign into your application with their FriendFeed account
  • Simplified response format – When you don’t need/want your application to have to differentiate between the nuanced features of FriendFeed (users, groups, friend of a friend, etc.) This API provides authenticated responses which include a list of possible commands on every feed, entry, and comment.
