FriendFeed is a pretty nifty service that allows you to both find and talk about cool things you and your friends find on the web, and it’s in real-time. Beginning last Thursday, FriendFeed also incorporated real-time search.
As you enter a search query you’ll now see new results instantly stream in at the top of your screen in real-time, eliminating the need to hit “refresh” repeatedly. You can search across just your friends, or across the entire FriendFeed network, which includes imported services like Twitter accounts and blogs. It’s a pretty cool way to see what people are saying about any given topic at any given time.
In addition to your basic search being in real-time, saved searched and those using advanced search options are also real-time. And as an added bonus, you can also embed a real-time search in your blog or website.
As someone who likes to stay on top of the latest buzz, I find this to be a really nice feature!
