The Google Reader Team have announced the availability of readership stats. You mean you can actually see how many readers you have using Google Reader? Nope, don’t be silly – what we get to see is how much time we are spending reading other people’s feeds. I am highly disappointed.
An RSS feed which you subscribe to is your personal subscription to a service, just like email.
A private subscription service for text, audio and video content, even involving a paid subscription fee has been possible for more than a year, based upon RSS.
Google can do nothing wrong… or can they?
The press and “A” list bloggers have been constantly touting the use of Google Reader over the past few weeks. Overall it is a useful piece of software, and might even become my permanent rss reader in the future.
