RSS advertising – it was just a matter of time…

RSS Advertising

As I was trawling through my RSS feeds via my iGoogle interface, I saw that ads have infiltrated RSS — although I had to scroll to see the branding.

I suppose it was going to happen – maybe it did and I’ve just noticed.  For some reason, it makes me sad.

I wonder if it’s something that can be filtered out– or if you’re stuck with it when using RSS feeds as content on a web site.

And will this potentially restrict educators from using feeds from certain sources? Hmm…
