Yahoo! have written an interesting whitepaper (via Scoble) about RSS usage in the internet community at large. I am quite surprised at the lack of take-up as it has revolutionised the way I get and read information. Most surprising of all is that on average people only have 6.6 RSS feeds which they read. At last count I have 172 feeds and I don't suppose that is even a large number out there for those who spend more time following blogs and websites than me. So who is it that's dragging the average down? Surely if you are only reading that few sites it would be easier to just go and visit them directly.

Well worth a read though.
