Web 2.0 is bringing the blogosphere together and forming online communities. Blogs have been great at forming communities and now we can share our OPMLs (RSS subscription lists).
"Share My OPML" allows the online community to share feeds with anyone else. Want to know what Robert Scoble, TechCrunch, Engadget, Tech.Memeorandum, and Techdirt are reading? Just go to Share My OPML and view the Top 100 feeds, click on the XML link and subscribe.
This seems like a great idea, but I still have some questions:
- Who controls the Top 100 list?
- Will users have the ability to pre-select or customize their Top 100?
- Who will monitor for spammers?
- Will this be seen as a value-add or just creating more work?
Here's a snapshot of the homepage on Share My OPML. Notice who is in the top 5…will this turn into a competition?
What are your thoughts?
