FeedBurner Plans some Upcoming Changes

FeedBurner announced that there will be some upcoming changes to FeedBurner in July of 2021. If you ever had a podcast on FeedBurner in the past, or have one there now, you may have gotten an email about these changes.

Starting in July, we are transitioning FeedBurner onto a more stable, modern infrastructure. This will keep the product up and running for all users, but it also means that we will be turning down most non-core feed management features, including email subscriptions, at that time.

What FeedBurner users can expect

For many users, no action is required. All existing feeds will continue to serve uninterrupted, and you can continue to create new accounts and burn new feeds. Core feed management functionality will continue to be supported, such as the ability to change the URL, source feed, title, and podcast metadata of your feed. Basic analytics on feed requests and the ability to create enclosure tags for MP3 files will also continue to be supported.

What is changing?

FeedBurner is turning down most non-core feed management features that help you optimize and publicize your feed, e.g., email subscriptions, Browser Friendly, and Password Protector.

Downloading your FeedBurner email subscriber data

If you want to continue using email subscriptions after the June transition, FeedBurner recommends downloading email subscriber data so that you can migrate your subscribers to a new email subscription service. This data will also be available for download after the transition.

Blogger email subscriptions

FeedBurner’s email subscriptions feature powers Blogger’s email subscription widget, also known as the FollowByEmail widget. When FeedBurner’s email subscriptions feature is turned down in July, Blogger’s email subscription widget will also stop working at that time.
