The power of RSS in Social Media Syndication in Content Curation #amplify

with 4 comments

Inspired by @svartling I started playing with amplify, and added it to my Social Media Syndication Network Flowchart which I’m updating.

The way I’m setting it up focuses on the way your message can be spread in your information stream, by making your information stream more visible. This naturally includes the regular blogging (RSS) and microblogging applications, and events which are interesting for 3rd parties. For somebody like me who produces many Likes, Social Bookmarks and other items I discovered that the value of being able to extract and automatically curate items from the feed such asTwitterFeed and del.icio.us.

TwitterFeed can be used to extracted items and post these to a number of platforms based on keywords, although the keyword filter has always been poor and their OpenID implementation half-hearted.

Another RSS feature comes from del.icio.us, which in my opinion is one of the only Yahoo! product which hasn’t been exceded by a far superior Google product, del.icio.us produces multiple RSS feeds, specify feeds can be extracted based on the tags which are assigned.

Naturally FaceBook, Twitter and other services produce their own RSS feeds, the another great Yahoo! product Yahoo! Pipes gives us the ability to curate content multiple sources, which can all be used for external sources and for people like me who discuss multiple subjects which can be curated in different ways.

RSS has never been the exclusive domain of blogs, but they are more powerful than most think.

Yahoo! and Plaxo support OpenID, kinda…

leave a comment »

This I didn’t know, both Yahoo! and Plaxo support OpenID. I have another OpenID, or do I? When I tried to add the OpenID identifier to ClaimID I get the message:

Could not find OpenID server for [https://me.yahoo.com/<open_id>].

Which I naturally found a little strange. I tried the OpenID at and it worked. So I tried LiveJournal and got the message:

Sorry! You will not be able to login to this website as it is using an older version of the the OpenID technology. Yahoo! only supports OpenID 2.0 because it is more secure. For more information, check out the OpenID documentation at Yahoo! Developer Network.

Thanks to Yahoo! I did discover which now feeds these blog posts into my .
