Another Facebook Newsfeed RSS Application Emerges, Will Facebook Let It Stay?

Back in May Facebook shut down an application that converted your Facebook news feed into its RSS equivalent. In theory it makes a lot of sense but unfortunately Facebook claims that such actions violate their privacy policy. Months later another developer has released an RSS application which displays the most recent stories in RSS format.

The new system doesn’t appear to use Facebook’s Open Stream which makes me guess this one will be shut down as well. It’s unfortunate because this is clearly a feature that many users want. Listening is one of the most important social media activities and the more formats that users have to consume information, the easier it is for them to listen. Unfortunately none of the RSS applications use authentication when a user views the feed currently.
