It is result oriented that passionate professionals can bring to the table. Many a times I come across people asking why is Social Media not measurable. All these questions are genuine and legitimate. Yes, it is as closely mismatched as this. So there you are.

[Marketing] Is Feedburner about to be closed by Google?
It’s particularly worrying in some areas, where companies of the size and scale of Google have effectively closed out the market, particularly in terms of RSS syndication with Feedburner and RSS reading with Google Reader. The ‘Do No Evil’ mantra is nice enough, but businesses have to make money to survive and it’s been sacrificed in the past in order to access new markets such as China. We’ve already seen negative changes to Google Reader forced on users as Google sacrificed it to try and jumpstart Google+. What’s happening to Feedburner?
