Feedvault is basically a place where you can share your OPML, but they go with the premise that it is a back up of your RSS Reader subscriptions…ie. since they have everyone’s OPML why not make a social system out of this where you can share and discover Reading Lists.
FeedVault is going to be a back-up for your feed set, but aren’t they all…as I made clear in the previous post, more importantly what we need is for these types of services to themselves subscribe to your OPML.
In the future my OPML we be uploaded to hundreds of services, when I add/delete a feed to my OPML, I’m not about to update these 100’s of instances of my OPML.
What FeedVault are doing is allowing you to set monthly or quarterly notifications to remind you to backup a fresh version of your OPML…all this can be done automatically if FeedVault instead subscribe to your OPML.
Comment, rate, download an OPML
You can click on a user, but you can’t find a URL by a user register…maybe it’s coming soon.
What happens is when you first join and subsequently update your OPML it is just a post…here are the most recently edited.
There are other views, such as Fresh uploads, new additions, top rated, popular…a few of these seem ambiguous to me.
You can’t browse OPML’s by tag, but you can search for a tag, or search for a keyword in the text.
