Topic - Does anyone use RSS anymore?

a lakeland climber on 14 Aug 2013
I'm sure that this site used to use RSS in some form (the news section still does) but there used to be more options to do so.

Is it a technology that's effectively dead? Was it too "techy"? Have social networks such as Twitter and Facebook taken over? One possibility is that RSS can't really be monetised (horrible word) by associating adverts with feeds which is why Google Reader was killed off. Another is that general computer users "just didn't get it". A suggestion I've seen is that people would rather look at articles their friends "like" or tweet.

So do you, or did you, use some form of RSS feed/ aggregator? If you no longer do then why?
