Newspaper notices readers’ preferences

leave a comment »

British newspaper the Guardian has become the first major newspaper to offer the full content of its articles as an RSS feed. “This way people can get the guardian.co.uk experience in whatever context is most useful to them,” the paper said in a press statement that should perhaps be required reading for that belief alone.

The service is free and supported by advertising. Users can customize their feeds by several filtering criteria, including by topic, contributor name, print section, “tone” (sports reports, blogs, etc.) and many others.
