WordPress.com powers alot of blogs, millions and all those blogs are about to get a new real-time feature, thanks to alot of Hubbub.
WordPress recently announced that the company has pushed support for PubSubHubbub live, a new technology that will push blog content to RSS and ATOM services much more quickly.
This is a very clever way to allow WordPress blogs to distribute content as it’s published to 3rd party services, rather than waiting for those services to check each feed for new posts. It’s on and live for all WordPress.com blogs, though self-hosted blogs must add a simple plugin, here to go real-time with this feature.
PubHubSubbub as highlighted in the video above. However those of you who want to find out more about the new protocol can do so over at the PuSH project site, here.
