I am surprised by the recent RSS feed bashing. A few blogs and magazines have commented on how in the era of Twitter and Facebook, RSS is no longer relevant.
I disagree strongly. I love RSS feeds. It allows me to browse through a truck load of updates / news and views in a matter of a few minutes. I would never be able to accomplish that by following any number of Twitter feeds or Facebook pages.
Most importantly, RSS feeds allow me to be in control. I choose what I want to read and browse. Relying on Facebook and Twitter makes the whole process more random.
My favourite RSS reader is Google and at last count, I had over a 150 feeds set up keeping me informed about everything I need to know.
