FriendFeed adds support for Plurk and Identi.ca

FriendFeed has added native support for microblogging platforms Plurk and Identi.ca, bringing the two services into the FriendFeed stream.

Previously, users could import messages from both services via RSS feed and marked as a blog, where as now both services are clearly defined, allowing users to hide feeds from both, should they so desire, without the hide affecting other feeds. Unfortunately, responding via FriendFeed to both services, a feature currently available for Twitter, isn’t available yet.

Before users of both services rush in to add their feeds, one word of caution. If you are using the excellent Ping.fm service, importing your Plurk and Identi.ca streams will see that message repeated on FriendFeed, and there’s no quicker way for a hide than doing that. I switch between Ping.fm and using Plurk (via Plurkair) and Identi.ca (via Twhirl) directly, so I’m not adding my accounts on both just yet.

It’s another sign of the growing popularity of both Identi.ca and Plurk, and the move will be welcomed by users of both services.
