While there is no “correct” choice in the full vs. summary RSS feed debate, I came across a situation this weekend that reinforced my opinion for full feeds.
The past few days, I was at An Event Apart Chicago, and I only had access internet access on Monday and Tuesday during the day. Now, I wanted to read my RSS feeds at other times, so I took my Google Reader offline with Gears, and started to read through them.
This worked great until I got to feeds that only gave a summary. How was I supposed to read the article? Stop begging for page views and give me the content.
I guess it’s just one more thing to consider when trying to decide whether to choose full vs. summary. Have your own opinion? Vote below.
