    Not just the aggregator, they seem to have turned off or drastically turned down the filter that shows you only relevant content. It means that any one of my friends can (and have) dominated half my feed with nothing I can do about it.

    yeah. facebook changes to much for my liking. twitter doesn’t offer enough. myspace is too cluttered and just looks awful. I did however set up an account at http://www.putiton.com It’s some sort of new site geared toward music and the arts. I’l let you know how this goes….
