Seth Godin – RSS Three months later.

How many people really use RSS? I have tried it. I don’t like it. I like the interaction of going to the actual website. It’s more human. I don’t think it will catch on with the masses. So, is there a tactic that will actually get people to use it more? As of August, Forrester Research said only 2 percent of U.S. households were using RSS feeds. – Percentage of RSS use.

Now here’s the caveat — that doesn’t include all the people who may be using RSS (for example, through My Yahoo!) and don’t realize it. Young consumers between the ages of 12-21 were more likely to be using RSS — 5% of online young consumers say they use RSS.


Sorry Seth. I’m still not signing up. I like to see the bright orange colors and your bald head everytime I visit the Seth Godin Blog. It’s not just about the easy access, its about the experience.
