A Directory of RSS Feeds of Popular Social Sites
If you are an old school like me and prefer to consume online content through RSS feeds, then this directory is for you.
Most of the popular online apps and services, including Facebook, YouTube and Twitter, offer RSS feeds, but the problem is that you have to be the nearest geek to find one of these feeds. Therefore, I have compiled this directory which will help you find XML feed for your favorite online services without losing a complex API.
