The Web is an ocean of knowledge and inspiration. Both the volume and the complexity of content are increasing exponentially.
As professionals, it is increasingly harder to connect with the content we need to keep up with industry trends, track competitors, or learn new skills.
This is where Feedly comes in. Where Readers Become Leaders!Excerpt from Feedly Blog
Most of you discover blogs through social links or rowing from one site to another via related links. You remember names of popular blogs and look for latest content from few selected blogs. Browsing and checking through each of them can be a bit cumbersome.
Feedly streamlines all your favorite blog posts in a single feed for more efficient reading. You can have a personalized feed of all your favorite sources, be it Buzzfeed, TechCrunch, AndroidAuthority or Mashable.
Feedly has currently over 14 Million reader on its platform and large number of sources for every interest. I recently started using its Android app and here is a quick review of this news aggregator.
Feedly was launched way back in 2008 as a web-based news aggregator service. It aimed at creating a better RSS Reader. Around that time, most people used Google Reader. In March 2013, Google Reader was shut down. This led to enormous increase in its user base. In fact, Feedly acquired 500k users within 48 hours of Google Reader’s closure.
The service enables you to chose a variety of topics and websites to read. You can chose blogs, publications, YouTube channels and even Google keywords to follow. You can also follow a twitter account to import its tweet-feed. This gives users great control over what they wish to read. Feedly is available for Web, Android and iPhone devices.
