- You have a FriendFeed, A public stream of stuff that you want to share with everyone.
- You can create a FriendFeed room for a particular subject or group of people. A room can be public (anyone can join) or private (require invitation/approval)
- You can also create a view for a room that shows up on your FriendFeed.
- What are rooms?
A room is like a mini FriendFeed for a particular subject or group of people. Everyone in your room can share stuff with each other and leave comments that only other people in your room can see. When creating a room, you decide whether to make it public, where anyone can join, or private, where you have to invite or approve each member. You can even have a room with a view by selecting "Show this room's content in my feed" -- this lets you view everything from your rooms in your feed as well, instead of just in the rooms themselves.
You can access all the rooms you're a member or owner of by clicking on the "rooms" tab. FriendFeed also displays your room memberships along with your friend subscriptions. There's no limit to the number of rooms you can join or create. As a room owner, you can manage the room's settings and membership, and invite new people to your room, even if they're not FriendFeed users yet. And when you use the FriendFeed bookmarklet to share anything from the web, you can also specify whether to share it on your feed, or just in a particular room.

We launched the FriendFeed rooms in May, and the feature has been really popular. I just put together an overview video so people new to FriendFeed can learn about how rooms work and the interesting rooms they can create or join:
