In my day-to-day computer/internet use, I rely on a lot of tools to help me make sense of the information I have to read my way through and, usually with these blogs, put into motion. One big tool that helps is the Google News RSS feeds...
...Let me stop myself here. Yes, I know, we've done a lot of poking (all good natured, to be sure) at Google as of late. And YES, they ARE indexing everything you could/would know. But that doesn't mean they're not helpful! Back to the news...
When you go to Google, go to the News page and visit one of Google's "niche" news pages (Business, Entertainment, etc.). On the left-hand side, you'll see a list of options beneath.
That RSS link will present you with a feed - subscribing to that feed (in a feed reader, which is not at ALL hard to get) will bring all the latest news to you.
But wait - what if you don't want news about ALL of business? What if you want news about credit unions (like we all do)? Simple. Go to the search field, type in what you want to get news about, and Google News will present you with a new feed/collection of stories. VERY useful.
But here's my guess: you won't take action. Very well. Here's your present from merciful me:
This will take you to the Social Networking news page. Sign up for e-mail alerts, the RSS feeds, or just read the news as it comes.
Got a great feed to share? Let me know.
