Shyftr is a service that aggregates different types of feeds. The main difference from other such types of services, is that it enables users to comment on those feed items away from where it originally came. Kind of like if you could post your comments directly through Google Reader, without posting them on the original blog or site.
Who owns this post? Are pageviews still relevant? Should blog content creators be upset? Is Shyftr crossing the line? Let it all just go?
The good, the bad and the quite ugly news of Shyftr.
The name of the service is quite appropriate. It shifts your audience away from your blog. Über bloggers don’t really care and are quick to dismiss it, but what about the little guys who aren’t yet making 6 or 7 figure salaries?
I don’t like Shyftr.
