Facebook has bought FriendFeed, a Web service that gives users a view of what their friends are doing on all sorts of social media sites.

Facebook of Palo Alto said the 12 employees of FriendFeed, based in Mountain View, Calif., would work for Facebook. The service's four founders will take on senior positions on the engineering and product teams at Facebook.

Facebook says will operate normally for now as the companies make long-term plans.
