Here is more evidence that RSS still needs to be more accessible to the mainstream user:
“Nielsen//NetRatings polled 1,000 members of its research panel who read blogs. It found that nearly two-thirds of the respondents either never heard of RSS (Really Simple Syndication) or did not know what the technology is used for.”
Clearly, RSS needs to be simplified and demystified. I also find that most people I speak with about blogging and podcasting and the web in general either haven’t heard of it, or have, but dont have a clue as to what it is or how to embrace it. When it truly becomes as simple as “one click” for subscribing to a feed, we are there, and it looks as if the new Windows Vista will speed up the adoption of RSS to the mainstream.
