Norway and Sweden seems to be adopting RSS feeds as a way of consuming media to a greater extent than Denmark, Finland and Iceland. Norwegian IT-Avisen is the medium in the Nordic region with most subscribers to its RSS feeds, according to my unscientific mini-study. I’ve been keeping a close eye on how the subscriber base for media RSS feeds in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Iceland is developing and the numbers are growing steadily with some feeds increasing the number of subscribers with more than 50% in just 6 weeks (SR Ekot), based on number of Bloglines subscribers.
