I came across a very good post today about the benefits of RSS that neatly complements what I wrote the other day about understanding RSS from the non-tech view.
Marnie Webb at Extension 337 writes about the ten reasons why non-profit organizations should use RSS. Valid indeed, and which I think will apply for any for-profit organization as well.
Here’s Marnie’s top-ten list; go to her blog to read it in full detail:
RSS is ridiculously easy to:
- Read the web
- Discover relevant information
- Share the information you get
- Participate in conversations
- Control your own subscriptions
- Allow people to trade your good content like it’s a baseball card
- Enable other people to lend you a bit of their web real estate
- Avoid being a spammer
- Contribute to web-wide conversations
- It’s only just beginning
