Would I benefit from activating the RSS feed? I don't have a blog of my own or a Facebook account. It looks to me like it just helps my followers see what I publish, but they get emails about that if they choose. Am I hurting myself by not using the feed?
Activating the RSS feed? What is that? Every HubPages account has a RSS feed automatically, you don't need to activate it. You could actively promote it of course to let people subscribe to your RSS feed. But that's more for people who are not already your followers on HubPages itself.
RSS feed in general is a good thing. Some readers like to put your RSS feed into their RSS feed reader such as Google Reader as described here:

The reason they want to subscribe to your RSS feed is that they can see whenever you posted something new.
Sure, your Hub followers do get an email when you publish a new hub. But that is only if they turned on this email notification and only if they are Hubpages member. Otherwise, they may still prefer RSS readers instead of getting emails.
I understand now. I probably should start at least a facebook A/C, because people have to be HP members to find our work, and I've really been enjoying writing here. Some of my more tech savvy friends don't move a step without their I Pads, so maybe it would be worth it for me to promote certain hubs I know would interest them. Anyway, thank all who answered to help me.

For people who never use RSS feeds for any reason, I reckon it would be worth giving them the option of disabling the feature.RSS feeds make it too easy for content to be stolen.
