I’m pretty sure most of you are tracking the news on WordPress. I’d like to turn your attention to the WordPress RSSCloud news and the latest worm attack on WordPress powered blogs.
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication, it is the way your readers subscribe to updates of your blog using clients like Google Reader or Bloglines. I’m pretty sure most of you know what RSS is. And I’m pretty sure most of you know that it takes from minutes to hours for a new post to reach your subscriber through RSS. Well, now it won’t any more. WordPress has announced that those users subscribed to RSS Readers which are using a new feature called RSSCloud (only River2 and LazyFeed for now) will get instant updates. Thus, WordPress becomes a little bit more real time now.
I’m very curios what will come out of this new technology. Will Twitter lose its popularity now? Will there appear new promotional technologies and marketing mixes? Will WordPress gain even bigger popularity now, even with more security breaches and worms threatening your blog?
By the way, have you already updated to the latest WordPress security release? Please do it immediately. And check if you’ve done everything to protect your WordPress blog.
