    I have added a few RSS Feeds to the Article Management System one of them is security breaches and i'm looking at them almost daily. You can say every week we have one or two breaches in security of accounts of websites and/or software. Haven't companies learned nothing at all its mind blowing that this still happens.

    It's a real shame the new content discover system on XF1 sucks for add on content / content that isn't threads. There's some really interesting threads in there from that feed, but honestly, I doubt I'll ever check it or see it again as I only use the new posts button here to check for new content. If the articles aren't in that feed I'll never see them.

    I agree. I find new content discovery to be unsatisfactory on most of the forums I visit.

    Would be nice if you can add add-ons to a feed that would make the site more functional.

    Security isn't cheap. Google focuses on it heavily, as otherwise, the consequences would be too frightening (imagine everything Google knows about you getting leaked onto the darkweb o_O).

    As for Facebook, I think they follow the philosophy of "move fast and break things".

    XF2 is not any better IMHO.

    I like the IPS way you can just make your own stream.
