RSS vs. Atom feeds – Which do you like?

Written By: Gary on June 15, 2009 2 Comments

feed-icon.pngDoes anyone really care if their feed is RSS 2.0 or RSS 0.92 or Atom 0.3?

I’m assuming most people’s concern is full feed or partial feed? (I like full feeds with images).

I’m also assuming most feed readers handle all types these days?

My experience is most Atom feeds are full feeds, does anyone use partial feeds with atom?

Just looking for some opinions. Deep feedback / technical feedback is optional :)

    I care. I support Atom because I support open standards for continuing innovation and development in internet technology.

    I guess I should have stated that I use Atom whenever possible. Although I didn’t realize RSS wasn’t open.

    I wonder what would happen if I redirected my RSS feeds to the Atom feeds? Would anyone notice? Would some people be happy they were getting full feeds when previously they weren’t?
