Do you use an RSS/Atom reader?
Boosts appreciated for sample size :)
@delve I tried to get into them but they become overwhelming, I much prefer checking individual sites
@delve sure it's probably my fault for adding so much but there is a lot of news to keep up with and quite a few sites that are good and adding them all soon means there is too much information and my desire to read it etc goes down a lot.
I actually prefer to get my news from fedi, at least then I can have appropriate cws and people's opinions on them and talk about them etc.
@delve If you are talking about it for other purposes like podcasts or youtube etc, I prefer to use podcast apps or like freetube etc.
Just some strange quirk of how I work I guess.
@delve Self-hosting a copy of FreshRSS for me and my partner. Supports multiple user accounts, and I believe if multiple people add the same feed it might dedupe/share the backend data in the DB.
Tons of sites hide their RSS feeds in the page source with no real link to it.
@kithop I use Feedbro on Firefox, which has a "Find Feeds in Current Tab" button. I'm guessing what it does is look in the source for it. It comes in very handy for this exact situation when the link isn't displayed.
There are two worlds. The ones who uses RSS, and the ones who are endlessly screaming while frying in hell ~
@delve I kinda wanna but I really don't know what feeds to use it for. I mostly do that over Discord bots now
@delve I have Flim on my phone for news. And I use a firefox addon (I currently don't remember the name of) on my laptop for webcomics.
RSS feeds are very handy!
@delve I kind of gave up on rss when Google Reader disappeared. I do use a podcatcher, but there's nothing I really need to keep up on text-wise
@delve i use elfeed on emacs. i wish the whole internet had feeds, and that everyone used them, so that when i created one everyone wd just automatically (know how to) follow it.
@delve I've had one sidebar reader or another installed since Firefox 1.0.
Harbi Xenu (Possibly? Name was some meaningless thing. Stopped working with Firefox 2.0)
Sage 2 (Sage didn't update so someone forked it)
Sage (Sage 2 didn't update, and Sage started updating again)
Drop Feeds (current, since Sage stopped updating)
I guess that's the more technical solution to the problem than I have :D
Last year I wrote about the problem on my blog, trying to convince page owners, with rather small success :X
@delve Nextcloud News to centrally manage it all, then I connect to my Nextcloud server from android with Nextcloud News on (called News) Fdroid and Desktop with FeedReader
@delve Let's convert people who have gone astray and have turned themselves over to AI-powered streams instead of RSS/Atom. ;-)
Feedly ... not ideal, but I read over different devices and until I don't host my own Nextcloud it's the best solution. Beside that RSS is the optimal way consuming news and knowledge.
