I read most of the blogs and comics I follow through an aggregator, Google Reader. I realized I followed Leo through his Friendfeed account. I switched over to his Leoville RSS feed and ditched the other. I noticed something that commonly happened on the Friendfeed account: There were often multiply repeated posts, due to feeds from Twitter, Buzz (and probably others) being reposted to Friendfeed.
That got me thinking about things I would like to see in a social media aggregator:
- I would like to be able to link two or more feeds that I know come from the same person, preferably with an eye to consolidating redundant posts.
- I would like to be able to read the comments from pages that have that feature enabled (Buzz, Blogs, etc.) and, when I make a comment, have that comment posted with the original page.
- (this one is Google Reader-specific) I would like to be able to nest my subscription folders within each other. At the moment, I've got a freakin' huge webcomics folder, that would love to split into subcatagories.
Any other thoughts? Please leave a comment.
