There have been tons of discussions about Rss (Really Simple Syndication, or Rich Site Summary) in the past, but one that you might care to join is over at Robert Scoble’s blog. I follow Robert on twitter, facebook and friend-feed; the mans all over the place.
What’s even more interesting is that with all the noise on twitter (and the fact that i follow a whole lot of people) I miss a good amount of his tweets, if not all on a daily basis and guess where i found his post about Rss? Google reader…Enough said right?
Most likely if you are reading this post then you get most of your information from Twitter the popular micro-blogging service or a number of other social media sites and Rss feeds. I mean where would we be without this protocol, even if it isnt real-time yet. You can check out more opinions below and formulate your own opinions:
I for one love Rss and Google Reader and won’t give them up for any social-media network, even twitter. Using all mediums in conjunction has worked really well for me, with more emphasis on Rss.
