- "...the ability to aggregate all content authored by a user into a single stream so that friends, family, or other interested parties can see the user’s public activities wherever they occur [is key to the social web]..." — Toward a People Web
'Bloglines (now retired) was a web-based news, RSS and aggregating tool used to monitor really simple syndication (RSS) feeds. Mark Fletcher, the former CEO of ONElist, founded Bloglines in 2003 and sold it to Ask.com/InterActiveCorp in 2005. Bloglines hosted more than 200 million searchable blogposts as of 2005, and it was widely-viewed as one of the best of breed platforms in the RSS area. In 2007, Bloglines released the iPhone version of its site, and the company released a new public beta version of its main website including new features and functionality such as drag-and-drops in the feed tree and a customizable start page. Bloglines was receding in importance in the web 2.0 space as of 2015 though it continued to operate under a new owner, MerchantCircle. Its main competitors were Google Reader and iGoogle, both of which retired in 2014. As of 2015, Bloglines is no longer operational.
