So, we thought we'd do a showdown between Tumblr and our old favorite... Read More . Tumblr certainly has increased in popularity with our readers, but it looks like MakeUseOf will mostly stick to the old favorite for now.

Out of 267 votes, the Tumblr/ split was: 61% love; 39% now favor Tumblr. It’s still an impressive gain in popularity by Tumblr.

Full results and this week’s poll after the jump.

This week’s poll question is: How Often Do You Check Your RSS Feeds?

Are you compulsively checking your RSS feeds throughout the day and night? Do you wake up with your phone under your pillow? Do you set aside time once per day to check feeds? Or do you forget about them completely for months?


While we’re talking about RSS feeds, are you the sort of person who keeps an unread count on RSS feeds and tries to read everything? Or do you just dip in when you feel like it and read as much of your RSS feeds as takes your fancy?

    With Feeddler on iPad I enjoy checking out my RSS subscriptions (including MakeUseOf)

    since i'm an igoogle user my feeds are on my main desk page,I have quite a few,and i read them all 'MakeUseOf' being on the very top of course...what's the point of keeping stuff that is not being used!  Future ref ?
    I like websites that use tailorded made igoogle RSS feed widgets,it's a nice touch and should be standardized for P.C. users,otherwise,i just pass.

      I love iGoogle and Netvibes - they're a great way to view RSS feeds. Also a fan of gReader and Feedly, though. Very awesome. :)
