RSS is far from dead. Google have continued to show their commitment to it by frequently adding new features and updates to a product with minimal advertising (for now), a whole lotta usefulness but an enormous long term potential.
The app’s most recent update sees Google Reader make it oh so very easy to share your favorite sites. You can share them individually or grab entire (google reader) folders and make them available to anyone.
I recently wrote a post sharing essentially my entire tech blogs and news sites list. I spent a good hour compiling the list into an easily digestible OPML to share with you, our readers. Had I waited, I could have simply drag and dropped that list within Google Reader and copied & pasted the OPML URL, for you to import into your reader of choice.
To create your own bundles to share with the world. Click on “Browse for Stuff” in the Google Reader sidebar and follow the instruction – it’s painfully easy.
It’s a wonderful development and whilst some tech pundit are claiming the days of RSS are numbered, I stand firm in my belief that we are a long long way from it.
If you’ve created any bundles you’d like to share with the world, feel free to post them in the comments.
