Many articles about the Australia-Facebook dispute noted that a large number of people rely on Facebook as their primary news and information portal. Because I think that relying on a big tech entity that treats users as products for advertisers as a primary news source is unwise - I suggest RSS as an alternative in my post.
Good article. I recently re-discovered RSS after a long hiatus. I use a nice desktop client, Liferea, on Linux. Along with the points you make: I find it helps keep me more focused and reduces my random clicking around.
Thank you for the feedback and kind words. I received a response in our Guestbook from another Liferea user. I'll give it a try on my laptop and/or old desktop since neither uses KDE and I have no need for all the dependencies on those. I do like QuiteRSS, which I have now, but it has an occasional tendency to crash and not have saved what you opened/deleted.
RSS is a great way to consume content - I hope more people turn to it as dissatisfaction with social media grows.
@nafnewleafjournal I'm using Gnome and Liferea works fine so far (the past couple of months). It has a weird retro vibe: I remember using rss quite a lot in the 2000s, then sort of got out of the habit. But I'm rediscovering its value!
