After being struck with a bit of insomnia, I noticed Pownce was finally out of private beta mode. Aside from finally opening up, something they should have done 3+ months ago, they’ve also thrown in a bunch of viral features that make them a viable tool.

The only new feature I found interesting was that they were now letting you import your friends from other networks (facebook, twitter, digg, flickr, etc.).  Not exactly sure how their facebook importer works, but I’ll definitely be investigating.  Ironically they are using Twitter‘s API to pull the social graph from twitter.com over to pownce.
Now the only step left is for them to give you an APML or xml file for your pownce relationships.
