RSS feeds technology, push technology

In 2005 RSS was in its infancy. The concept of “push” versus “search” around information consumption had become very real. 
 
In 2010 the Internet has undergone a major evolution. The real-time information RSS was so astute at delivering (primarily, blog feeds) is now gained through conversations, and consuming this information has become a social experience. As Steve Gillmor pointed out in TechCrunch, being locked in an RSS reader makes less and less sense to people as Twitter and Facebook dominate real-time information flow. Today RSS is the enabling technology – the infrastructure, the delivery system. RSS is a means to an end, not a consumer experience in and of itself. As a result, RSS aggregator usage has slowed significantly.

Social Networking

Look out for aggregators, and techniques that can bring social networks into other areas of the web like http://www.power.com/ aggegates Hi5 Myspace Orkut and perhaps Facebook ; Rickard Eriksson " Vad jag hoppas är att precis som vi för många år sedan fick en standard för hur man skickar e-post runt om i världen, så skulle jag vilja se något liknande inom sociala medier. Någon standard så att man kunde umgås socialt på nätet och ha alla sina vänner samlade utan att det behöver vara en enda stor global sajt som har hand allt om allting."
