Tech blogger Robert Scoble has a great post about using FriendFeed to track news and searches. You can track blogs, ego searches, events, Twitter tags, news about your company, product or blog, or most anything really. It does this by aggregating info of your choice into what they call rooms.
So, I just created a FriendFeed room called Financial Scandal which pulls in news about Madoff and Marc Dreier from multiple sources into one place. Plus, anyone can post a new item and add comments. Check it out and please join in!
