RSS Feeds: Managing the Mechanism

An interesting article here in the latest issue of Freepint on how to manage RSS Feeds, in it the author argues that although RSS "promised" that it would save us from Information Overload increasingly users are being swamped by it.

There are some useful tips in the article, with the following the main points;

  • Choose your software or service carefully
  • Organise your feeds
  • Read your feeds as part of a daily routine
  • Prune your feeds regularly
  • Mark "all as read" even when they aren't
  • Subscribe to search results where possible

The final point is to enjoy yourself and have fun and that means subscribing to feeds that might not be related to the work you do, which I certainly embrace!
