Microformats: What They Are and How To Use Them Advertisement Web 2.0 has its positive and its negative sides. Apart from tremendous technological improvements, provided by Ajax, semantically organized content and the growing popularity of RSS-Feeds, the term “Web 2.0″ still hadn’t managed to assert itself as the renewed Web rather than a new revolutionary technology as it is mistakenly being called. Consequence: many renewed techniques, which somehow seem to be related to the “new” Web, aren’t fully or properly understood. This results in public misunderstandings and keeps both developers and users away from the use (the improvement) of these techniques. One of the new terms on the horizon is Microformats (sometimes abbreviated µF or uF) – formats, which make it possible to create meta-content which can be not only read, but also understood by machines (which was the basic idea of Semantic Web1, which is not Web 2.0). Things you should know about Microformats Existing Microformats Advantages of Microformats Articles About Microformats

RSS from the New Delicious The new delicious is finally up. Not all that much different but I am excited because I use it every day. One of the features I use every day is the RSS. When I heard delicious had enabled RSS feeds today, I went to the site right-away to set them up. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find them anywhere.

Kristi Hines on RSS for Facebook Pages Do you want to keep up with the latest news for your favorite Facebook fan pages, but don’t want to miss out on them because EdgeRank is hiding them from your new feed? Or would you prefer to not have to go to Facebook at all until your favorite pages have updates? One of the Google Chrome extensions I use, RSS Subscription Extension, puts an RSS icon in the browser’s address bar when there is an RSS feed discovered on a page. On Facebook pages that haven’t been converted to the new Timeline design, that icon comes up so you can subscribe to your favorite page’s RSS feed. For pages with the new design enabled, however, the RSS feed has gone missing. Fortunately, the feed is still available though. For example, my Facebook page URL is Highlighted in the above is my page’s ID number, 255576081168962. Take this URL and paste it into your preferred RSS reader.

And last year Google+ launched without any native RSS support. So what of Pinterest’s RSS support?

Directory Yahoo RSS Feeds In the beginning, it was just the Yahoo! Directory -- of course, it wasn't called "the directory" then: it was just Yahoo!. And when David and Jerry's pet dissertation-stalling project became more work than they could manage on their own, they assembled a team of unusual helpers. These "surfers" were a strange assortment -- ex-librarians, inquisitive generalists, obsessive-compulsives -- but they shared a few key traits: curiosity, an endless appetite for knowledge, and a passion for organizing information. Their goal (beyond satifying their own curiosity) was to help other users of the fledgling Internet find what they needed... even if they didn't know they needed it. The Spark wasn't there from the beginning, but once it launched, it seemed that it had been inevitable. Since February 2005, over 1,000 posts have been written by more than 50 surfers (only we're not called "surfers" anymore: we're now "editors").
