RSS in Real-Time.

One of the major concerns about RSS is that it is not real-time. RSS can be used to move content from a blog to social media sites, other websites, and RSS feed readers, but there is a delay which can be up to an hour. In this time of the real-time web, that seems too long.

There are several solutions being implemented. The solution is to change RSS from a "pull" to a "push" technology.

In general, the protocol is called a Publish / Subscribe model, usually abbreviated as PubSub.

The Story of PubSubHubbub and rssCloud
RSS is great. That said, it isn't real-time. With the advent of Twitter, people are now beginning to wonder why RSS needs to poll every hour. Why can't we have the immediacy of Twitter in RSS. Time for a history lesson.
Comparing PubSubHubbub and rssCloud
I thought I'd prepare a blog entry describing the differences between PubSubHubbub and rssCloud. Both protocols are classic publish and subscribe.
Rebooting the RSS cloud by Dave Winer
In the early days of RSS, we had the idea that instantaneous updates would be the next step. That was 2001. It took a little longer than we thought, but now with "realtime" as the Next Big Thing, it's time to reboot all that stuff.

Importing an RSS Feed to Your Facebook Page
I'm not sure who's idea it was to make importing an RSS feed into your Facebook page such a challenge, but it shouldn't be this painful. You'd think it would be possible to go to your page, check-out your settings and add your RSS feed URL to a field and save it. Not so quick.
