What’s going to happen to Feedburner? I fully expect Google’s next spring cleaning post will announce the demise of FeedBurner. Why? Because Google has systematically killed off every RSS-based app in its arsenal except for FeedBurner, the engine that drove them all. iGoogle went in July 2012, although it’s been granted a reprieve until November 2013, and FeedBurner will no doubt stick around until then. AdSense for Feeds crumbled last September. Google Reader bit the bucket earlier this month. Google declared the FeedBurner API deprecated in June 2011, but left the door open with “no scheduled date for shutdown.”
