54% Say FeedBurner Will Be Shut Down Within 12 Months

FeedBurnerA couple weeks ago, we ran a poll asking you if you feel FeedBurner has a future at Google.

We asked because there is and was a lot of concern around FeedBurner's future. There are signs that Google may indeed shut it down and honestly, if they do, I'd be pretty upset. Why? Because I use them and use it heavily even before Google acquired them.

That being said, we have over 150 responses on our poll asking "Will Google Kill FeedBurner & How Soon?"

FeedBurner Poll

Wow, 54% of the folks who responded think FeedBurner will not only die but also die within 12 months! I hope not.

Please read my poll disclosure policy before jumping to any scientific conclusions.

Hi Barry: Google announced the end of AdSense for Feeds. We at FeedBlitz will announce a replacement ad revenue-share program next week. Link: http://www.feedblitz.com/adsense-for-feeds-is-dead-dec-2nd-official/

I would sorely miss Feedburner if it were to go but I have no doubt Google won't give a damn about that.
