Something like that except maybe excluding the friends, there could be hundreds of friend invitations all day. That would equal to more friends being made. Everything else is cool.

Sound like twitter which I hate. Also it would consists of at least 75% pointless drivel. The only thing I could think of as news would be the blog posts. They should be more prioritized in the new site.

I think I heard something like that of having things like achievements and all put on. I think it will be on our profiles and all. But I think we should be able to select what we can put on. And Corymn did say we are going to have similar to twitter like Followers/following.

If this idea is something like Xfire, then it would be automatic, meaning the server updates the progression of the user. If they is user-made updates, then they are considered blogs.

With Ian's speculated features about following users and friends alike, that would basically just notify you whenever said user did something. What we are discussing right now are ways the user can post their own news. I say on the profile, whether it be user-made blog posts, or automatic progression updates like how Xfire has.

Perhaps something akin to a news feed, where any achievements by users, new friends, 'status' posts (if those will exist) and other such things exist.

This is precisely what we're building. Except for the "Joe and John are now friends" kinds of posts, those will show up on your own profile page (if you are Joe or John, or a friend of either of them)

We're looking at ways for users to share news on their own profile pages. Larry's thinking about letting users add a few RSS feeds and publish the last 3 headlines from it, etc. and we're happy to hear other ideas.

Maybe a news section or a blog on users profiles where people could subscribe to blogs?

Well, we don't want it so much as a place where you can read your CNN news or something, it's meant more as a "here's MY blog, and here are the last few things I've written"
