Real time is what almost every service is trying to integrate it in some way. However FriendFeed is running ahead with the idea and it all began with its redesign.

While almost every other service, from FriendFeed to Google Search, is trying to get real time, the leading social network, Facebook thinks to the contrary.

Just like I got this news update from Eric Eldon.
