Although the increase in numbers may give you more social proof and make you feel good this is a very misleading statistic. If you are not familiar with FriendFeed its a service that aggregates all your social media activities to one place.

So there is no harm in increasing your FriendFeed subscribers.I have being using FriendFeed for a while and its a great source to find great post to feed your Twitter account or to stumble .
