Facebook Copies Another Feature from Friendfeed

Mark Zuckerberg has a new post up detailing a host of new features that Facebook is rolling out.

One that caught my eye were the changes to the news feed – specifically, the news feed will show updates in real-time:

We're also going to make some changes to the home page. The new home page will let you see everything that's shared by your friends and connections as it happens.

Last month, Facebook copied the “Like” feature from Friendfeed. This month, they show news in real-time, which Friendfeed added last October. I guess sometimes “innovation” really means “watch what the competition is doing and emulate it”
