“I’m Not Dead Yet!” – the Future of RSS

I came across a great post from Graywolf (Michael Gray) where he was discussed Preparing for The Death of RSS (Really Simple Syndication). He states that while many techie/nerdy types use RSS to help organize and sort through the large number of blogs and news feeds, the simple fact is that RSS is not being implemented widely by the “regular” public.

Judging by the numbers of related searches on Google regarding this topic, I might be inclined to agree. He goes on to state that even the Google Reader Tech Crunch has only around 347 000 subscribers. He argues that RSS feeds are useless in connecting with you customers.


While this may be true to some degree, I have to disagree with Graywolf. There will always be a need for RSS. Or, if not RSS , then a similar news feeder? RSS was created to serve the very specific purpose of publishing frequently updated content such as blog entries, news headlines, and audio and video files in a standardized format.

There will continue to be a need for RSS for years to come. If not from internet users en masse, then by techies and those involved in blog or media distribution.
