I rarely “surf” to random sites any more, any site that wants my attention must have an RSS feed that I can put into Google Reader.
I am intrigued by the social networking sites, a few are listed here. LinkedIn is one that I can see the point of.
LinkedIn have recently introduced an RSS feed for my network updates, so it ticks both boxes. What’s the downside? I’m not sure what it is. It could be that LinkedIn is a work/professional focussed network rather than personal. It could be the immediacy of the updates from my colleagues. It’s strange but I feel crossed between a stalker and a voyeur in a way that I just don’t get from feeds from other sites.
