FriendFeed Launches API

Tagged:  

You have probably heard quite a bit about FriendFeed. The service creates a feed of your activity on multiple social networks so you can share it with friends. Today they have released an API for the service so you can start creating some cool mash-ups using the service.

The API offers PHP and Python libraries (unfortunately, if you are using Ruby or Java there are no provided libraries yet) and allows you to receive data in JSON, XML (a simple form of XML), RSS and Atom formats.

You can get more information about the API here. Also, Read Write Web has written a very good post about the API and you can read it here [they have some great articles, check out their post on ourTubeSpy application :-) ].

The API will possibly make some very interesting mash-ups. I'm thinking about using it for the next application for Ajaxonomy Labs (more on that in the near future). I'd love to hear your thoughts on the API and the FriendFeed service (as always, you can leave them in the comments or you can write a blog post about it on this blog with your free Ajaxonomy account).
