The obligatory intro video...
There are countless RSS Readers available, we will be exploring Google Reader because:
- it is web-based, cross-platform; has decent support with mobile devices
- it has wide adoption
- some good integration with other Google services
- It also features decent support documentation, and a decent blog for tracking new features and tips for power users.
- link to a starter pack of feeds (optional)
- once some feeds have been added, spend a little time getting a sense of reading feeds. You can try to delete feeds, star items, etc...
- You can try out the "recommended sources" link in the "Explore" box on the sidebar. It bases recommendations based on sites you already have subscribed to...
- Let's add some feeds... just look for the feed icon in the browser URL bar:
- Custom feeds based on searches... such as Google News.
- Flickr image, or podcast feeds...
- settings in the interface, or in the settings tab
- key, using a good content management system
