The Effect of RSS on Discussion

By Deane Barker on July 25, 2003

What effect does RSS have on the commenting and discussion of blog entries? Take Mr. Foo and Mr. Bar. They are identical in every way, except Mr. Foo visits a couple of times a day, while Mr. Bar just monitors the site via RSS. Who’s more likely to comment on a blog entry? My guess is Mr. Foo.



  1. Actually, I comment more from RSS than the site. Newsmonster sucks down content that includes the comment link. Manually including would probably help people with other aggregators.
