If you hadn’t yet heard the news, Google Reader announced it would be shutting its doors on July 1st. The thought of not being able to scroll through your favorite blogs on Google Reader probably sent you into a panic! Worry no more, because each Thursday through the end of June we will offer great alternatives to Google Reader here on the MFT Blog.
Today we will be focusing on Feedly.
Like Google Reader, Feedly gives you a way to organize and read the content of all your favorite sites. It is very user friendly and is available with free software for Firefox, Chrome, and Safari. Simply download the free software and it will automatically migrate your existing reading list over to Feedly in a matter of minutes.
Feedly allows you to easily customize the way you view your feed. The two examples shown below are the Cards View and Full Article View. The other two (not listed here) are Magazine View and Title Only View.
Subscribing to new websites is easy! Simply click “add website” in the box in the upper left-hand corner.
Another box will appear on the right-hand side of your screen where you simply add the website’s URL to get the subscription up and running on your Feedly account. It’s that easy!
And last, but not least, you can take Feedly with you on the go with their free iPhone App. It’s user friendly and easy to navigate!
Thanks for tuning in today! We hope the information we provided you with today has been helpful.
