RSS stands for “Rarely Seen Sites”
Is RSS unproven technology? The Browser writes: “Well, here’s a reality check: Dead2.0 points to recent research that shows that only 1 in 10 people have even heard of RSS, and a mere 2 percent actually use it. That’s a pretty lousy adoption rate for a technology which dates back to 1999.”
Though 80% of my web use is via RSS, it will be interesting to see if really simple syndication really catches on with a mass audience. Part of me thinks that many users still enjoy the “experience” of visiting a website rather than just having text and image content pushed out to them. That desired experience probably fuels the other 20% of my web use.
