BBC – The Feed Factory – Home

Great site about using RSS. Nice example of how communication to visitors is important and the BBC takes it very seriously.

I’m still unconvinced that it means a whole lot to the average individual. Our audiences might start expecting it more and more as popular places like the BBC start advertising with little XML or RSS or FEED icons sprinkled about. Also as more devices and tools start making it very easy to discover and use “feeds” they will be an expected part of the site experience.

We’ve only dipped our toe into this water and have RSS feeds available on the home page as an aggregate of all news (minus sports), and separate feeds for Campus News & Academic Spotlight. We have a help page about RSS Feeds at Bowdoin.
