What can you do with RSS?
RSS publishing isn't just for blogs. Paul Gibler has some examples of other RSS applications in No RSS feed? You're fired! (via Joe Wikert). See his article for examples of each:
- Auction Feeds
- Promotional Feeds
- Job Feed
- Local and Global Content Feeds
- Public Relations Feed
- Weather Feed
For the individual RSS user, some of the most powerful feeds come from search engines, tagging sites, and job boards (which can be useful sources of information even if you're not on the market).
Then there's the original idea for RSS, which finds updated content on the web sites you subscribe to. Using RSS to read blogs is the obvious use. Traditional media outlets are also offering feeds. Look at the Business Journals feeds page for an example of how they can tailor their feeds to your interests.
