Good article over at eWeek called “RSS Offers Relief from Enterprise E-Mail Overload.”
It talks about how email has fallen out of favor as a way of distributing information to large groups of people, and how certain businesses are starting to use RSS.
The article also covers some negatives of RSS, including:
- Problems with adoption and inertia from some users
- How RSS feeds can reduce page visits, and
- How RSS can create bandwidth bottlenecks for popular feeds.
This definitely isn’t one of those “email is dead” articles, but instead shows how forward thinking companies are looking to RSS as a new distribution channel.
