Facebook rolled out a new feature that connects your lifestream into your mini-feed further positioning itself as the main hub for our online brand and activity.

Now you have the ability to import updates from Flickr, Picasa, Yelp and delicious into your Facebook Mini-Feed to channel a more representative social flow. Facebook will also add Digg and other sites in the near future.

So what does this mean to you? It means that Facebook realizes that communities such as FriendFeed, Blog Catalog, MyBlogLog, among many others, are attracting viewers and hosting conversations outside of Facebook simply because it’s a more representative view of your lifesream and that of your most important contacts. I believe this is the start of a series of more important announcements that will position Facebook as your one-stop-shop for the Social Web – but that’s just my opinion.

Connect with me on Twitter, Jaiku, LinkedIn, Pownce, Plaxo, FriendFeed, or Facebook.
