Thanks to OStatus, Statusnet / Identica has become more than just a microblogging platform. It's a way to follow other social networks right in the comfort of your Stautsnet / Identica site.

As of the moment, Statusnet 0.9.2 can only follow these sites. Take it from me when I say that the Livejournal following does not work at all, but I read they're working on it.

If you want to follow people in Tumblr, Posterous, or Google Buzz, then follow the instructions below:
  1. Open the Posterous/Tumblr/Google Buzz Profile site you want to follow
  2. Copy the URL
  3. Open your Statusnet or page
  4. Go to Subscriptions
  5. Click on Remote
  6. Paste the URL you copied
  7. Click on "Continue"
  8. Click on "Confirm"
Easy as that and you'll be seeing their posts soon! However, only Google Buzz posts with notes before the Google Reader shares and direct inputs will appear.
