RSS feeds in PR

RSS~Really Simple Syndication. The key word here is simple. In today's world everyone is looking for an easier or simpler way of doing things. That has been the beauty of technology; It tends to make make things easier. But simpler? Perhaps not. Before RSS, one had to either wait for an email/newsletter or go to the website/blog for new information about an organization.

Now, PR professionals can provide journalists with new information continuously with their RSS feeds that the journalist may sign up for. It basically can bring the website to the RSS subscriber. Simple. Not only that, but it is confidential, has been said to be preferred by many journalists, complimentary, and up to the minute information, no old news. Also, this is still a relatively new technology and has so much room for growth and improvement. The possibilities are great and very exciting for those in the PR world.

I love your graph! I agree- the fact that it is simple is so crucial. We crave the easiest and quickest way. Remember: just because they are subscribing doesn't mean that they are reading it. :)

Keep up the good work!

Excellent graph! I'm sure all those "visual learners" out there appreciate it :) On a side note, I think I am going to go ahead and request an RSS feed to the Dallas Cowboys website and hopefully they will feed me information about why they are doing so terrible now...
