Google now controls more of my info!

Google has agreed to purchase Feedburner – the rss feed management company for $100m according to Mike Arrington in a post over on TechCrunch.

According to Mike:

The information we have is that the deal is now under a binding term sheet and will close in 2-3 weeks, and there is nothing that can really derail it at this point.

Great news for the guys in FeedBurner but now that Google owns another digital slice of my life I can’t help wondering what other feed management companies are out there (eggs, baskets, etc.) and can I integrate their services into my blogs as easily as FeedBurner?

  1. True Dennis, however I imagine that will be a while away yet and I don’t see Google slipping adds into the feed without asking people’s permission first. That hasn’t been their modus operandi to-date.

    When they do roll it out I expect them to talk it up as a monetisation feature of their GoogleBurner offering.
