RSS is still an obscure term

Pew Internet & American Life Project asked over 1300 Internet users about their awareness of certain Internet terms. While 88% of respondents had a good idea what the term “spam” means only 9% had a good idea what “RSS” means. 26% of respondents had never heard the term “RSS.”

I am sure MP3 was just as obscure before the term became synonymous with all digital music.
