Today I’m thrilled to share that we’ve implemented an RSS feed for the comment thread on all articles that have live comment(s) on them. As of this morning, there are currently 7,665 comments live on 5,926 unique articles. [See Example]
What this means for the non-RSS savvy: People who comment on your articles can now subscribe to the RSS feed of the comments of the article that they are either engaged in the conversation or only want to lurk and watch the conversations taking place on a particular article. This helps them to be notified when there is a new comment on an article so they can read it or add to the discussion.
All together this means we’re supporting over 55,000+ RSS feeds (one for every author, one for every category and now one for every article with a comment). As a reminder to those who are hyper-RSS savvy, we do not allow RSS feeds to be syndicated on commercial websites.
