RSS for free users

RSS for free users

Short, concise description of the idea
As paid users are given 10 points for RSS feeds, why not give free users 2 points (or even 1 point) to allow them to see what they could get if they paid.

Full description of the idea
Most of the free users I've spoken to have no idea what RSS feeds are or how useful they can be as "friends". Giving them access to a couple as a taster might well persuade them it was a service worth paying for (I certainly would pay for it by itself)

An ordered list of benefits

  • Allow users to see what they are missing
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Higher load
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • Not much, I assume. Simply allocate less point to free users than paid ones. (Well, probably more complex than that, but hopefully not too complex).
  • Tags: syndication, § obsolete
