"What I especially like is that it's all open and that everyone can have their opinion. If this was a large group in a lecture theatre, then some people will be too shy and not say anything and others would become the main speakers. However, on friendfeed, it's not as scary because you don't have to speak in front of people. I also think it's easier to talk to Doctors/Professors on friendfeed than in real life."
"The first thing I did when I noticed that the network was down, was to go on to friendfeed because I knew I could rely on it for information ... I like how one's able to ask for advice from everyone, not only first year colleagues, but also second and third years as well."
