Friendfeed and Social Objects

In this second screencast video about Friendfeed, I talk about the way Friendfeed uses social object theory to add stickiness to imported feeds. There’s also a discussion of Friendfeed rooms, and a reply to Linda Hartley‘s question about the first video in this series: Friendfeed for Microblogging.

Warning: This screencast is hosted on Google video Blip.TV because I overshot the length limit of ten minutes for youTube – oops.

Social Object theory or Object Centred Sociality has been explained by Jyri Engestrom of Jaiku.

    Friend Feed is a great place to share ideas!

    Ah, the emebedded player has been playing the wrong episode recently, so if you came here and only got a repeat of the first episode then I’m sorry about that, please try again now.

    I’ll be much more careful using tubeMogul in future. Well actually, I think I’ll just make sure I stick within 10 minutes. How can I upload new videos to Blip.TV without overriding what gets played in any embedded players on blog posts which refer to older episodes?

    Andy, friendfeed provides direct links to the “social objects”. You can find the link by clicking “More” > “Link to this entry”.

      Thanks Davdin. The permalinks are indeed there but not immediately obvious. I’ve now shown how to do this along with three other tips in my third video of the series: More Friendfeed tips. I’m also collecting suggestions for a possible video 4 on friendfeed so if there are any queries please fire away. For example, going back to Jyri Engestrom’s theories, the site should also have clearly visible “verbs” which suggest what you might like to do with the objects.
