Though Friendfeed has gained only scant attention within the world of online social media sites, it has nonetheless come to mean a great deal to those users savvy enough to fully understand its utility for developing and sustaining robust discussions and deeper conversations. Those conversations always reach beyond 140 characters and embrace a network outside one's immediate sphere of influence.

In this film, four friends from diverse backgrounds sit and discuss how it is that they've come to know each other so well before ever meeting in person. The viewer enters the discussion mid-stream and exits in just the same manner. Though their conversation is, at its foundation, informed by their involvement in FriendFeed, non-users should be able to identify with the core sentiments proffered by each person at the table. Namely, that the need to tell stories and share with one's friends is still just as viable a pursuit online as it is in person.
