FriendFeed Trick – Get Your Subscriptions Out As an OPML File

Written by Amit Agarwal on Apr 16, 2008

export-friendfeedIf you have added a bunch of services (like Flickr,, YouTube, etc) to FriendFeed and want to mirror your subscriptions in say Google Reader or Bloglines, there are two options:

Option 1: Subscribe to single aggregated feed from FriendFeed using the URL – do remember to substitute the word name with your own (or someone else’s) FriendFeed login. See example.

Option 2: Export all services, that you have added to your FriendFeed account, as an OPML using the URL [see example]

In the first case, all your services will get syndicated as a single aggregated feed via FriendFeed but in latter case, your favorite news reader will have to directly fetch the content from the original source. Pick the one you like. Thanks Bret Taylor.
