Yahoo today released usage data on RSS - and what they found may surprise you. Awareness of RSS is quite low among Internet users: 12% of users are aware of RSS, and only 4% have knowingly used RSS. 27% of Internet users consume RSS syndicated content on personalized start pages (e.g., My Yahoo!, My MSN) without knowing that RSS is the enabling technology.

So Explain HOW TO USE RSS to Your Users!
