3spots has the latest in webpage monitoring with a service called Diffbot, it is an RSS Reader with a built in webpage monitor…the great thing it seems is that you can read your monitored webpages in RSS Reader tradition.
I mostly use WatchThatPage, and I get updates by email, I guess there is no stopping me converting this email into RSS to read it in my RSS Reader. Or I can read the latest by logging in to WatchThatPage, but this isn’t a great experience. This is where Diffbot takes off, they have just made the reading experience more with what you are used to.
Although if you use Feedwhip, you need not bother, as this monitoring service enables you to login to read, sends email alerts, or even generates a feed for each of your alerts to subscribe to…pity the login interface isn’t set up to look like an RSS Reader. But you can subscribe to these feeds in your usual RSS Reader…just make a folder for your webpage monitoring feeds.
I guess the good thing about Diffbot is that your webpage monitor and your RSS Reader are the same client…this is handy, but l can never find an all in one web 2.0 swiss army PIM tool that I’ll be happy with.
Feedwhip is based in a social network environment, where you can look at a users monitored items, or browse these items by tag.
Sorry about that I got carried away, the only communal part about it, is that you can view the most recent feed whips. Actually some updates are you can group your feeds into a single feed, and you can have multiple email addresses per account.
