What is RSS? And why it deserves a try

Thu, 06 Jul 2017 17:21:08 +0300

A bit of explanation for RSS newbies: RSS stands for Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication and means a web-based technology of delivering news of various kinds from their sources directly to the users, in the form of a simple feed - that’s it!   You can use an RSS reader of your choice to subscribe to your favourite sites, blogs, job listing portals, online shops, etc, and thus get all their news collected in one place. That would help you to keep abreast of the latest events, hot deals, digital media updates, and fresh articles without actually visiting all those websites one-by-one.   How to subscribe? It’s a cakewalk: there might be an orange button with a text suggesting that you ‘subscribe via RSS’ on a site, but most of feed reading tools can automatically check a website to see if it syndicates an RSS channel and then you can go on by adding it to the subscriptions.     Why Social Media can never replace RSS   Today more people than ever get news from social networks and that might be an issue: the content of social media feed heavily depends on our (and our friends’) reactions and votes (i.e. likes, shares, reposts, etc), which is not bad at all, but it may lead to formation of so called ‘echo chambers’ keeping us within a narrowed and manipulated scope of interests, so it seems that we started to miss a lot at this point. Unlike most of the social networks, RSS does not include any mechanism that can automatically promote, filter or ‘micro-target’ certain content at a specific user according to trending opinions or his\her recent actions, location, and personal preferences.   It’s as simple as that – Really Simple Syndication. You only have to choose the resources and get the information you’re purely interested in, with no additional moderation or limitations, except for those you set yourself.   RSS technology can boast of a few strong advantages over the social media (as a news source, of course), making it a favourable choice for users who still appreciate their personal freedom of choice: No ads or promoted content mixed into your newsfeed. No personal data tracking or questionable censorship policies. No deceptive SMM strategies or shady inner algorithms trying to take advantage of your attention. No issues with sudden account bans, fake users or dishonest reports. Let us be clear: the point of social media is to create a safe environment for people to communicate (and they are pretty great at it), while RSS is a rather simple way to control the incoming flow of information and build a news digest with your own rules.   Once you decide to give RSS a try, it won't take long to realize the benefits: you may save so much precious time and nerves by getting rid of all those useless content, rubbish clickbait, and annoying ads that are flooding the social media. With the help of feed readers (aka RSS aggregators) you can manage your news feeds wisely and focus on things that really matter.     How to keep the Simple Syndication really simple   If you feel excited about the ideas of RSS, and would like to follow a few worthy sites, then you should begin the journey with signing up for a nice feed aggregator.   We at Feedreader believe that simplicity is the key virtue of RSS, so we created Feedreader Online that lets you check the news on the go, without hassle, personal data collection or overwhelming functionality.   Here are some Feedreader Online features for you to enjoy RSS: Radically simplified and streamlined user interface. Easy to sign up and use (no need to read any lengthy manuals). Clean and uncluttered view: no banner ads or promoted content. Safe and anonymous usage: keep all your personally identifiable info to yourself + benefit from https encrypted data transmission. Responsive support service providing timely assistance to everyone. Free of charge for all users. Feedreader Online keeps managing the newsfeeds ultimately simple and makes your reading experience really pleasant, so you’l[...]

Our team has recently renovated the Feedreader website’s UI in order to streamline and adapt it for mobile devices. We hope you will love our new elegant and modern look!




Get ready for the news observer by Feedreader!

Wed, 28 Sep 2016 15:51:07 +0300

Just imagine a service, which on the one hand lets you preview any site’s RSS feed without even subscribing to it in Feedreader Online, and on the other hand helps you broaden your horizons by suggesting some alternative news sources.
 
Such a “quick view” service would allow you not only to check the availability or activity of a certain website’s RSS feed (to make sure it’s not broken or outdated) before adding it, but also to find and observe more feeds\news related to similar subjects. Feedreader team is on its way to launching such an instant feed observer in early 2017, so stay tuned!




We are glad to present Deets Feedreader!

Fri, 22 Jan 2016 12:47:23 +0300

Feedreader has proudly expanded its platform with a new service - Deets Feedreader!

 

We take the challenges of user safety very seriously and that’s why we decided to start a free service that would allow you guys to check the websites’ statuses (e.g. 'live' or 'stale', safe or dangerous) before subscribing to their RSS feeds.

 

Here we go: Deets Feedreader is intended to help you delve into any website’s most important details, such as the most visited pages, safety insights, traffic stats, Whois lookup, preferred language, and more. It allows you to check all 'deets' in one place (and in a single click!) - just enter an URL and discover everything we managed to learn about that site.

Feedreader Gets a New Look

Fri, 13 Dec 2013 02:19:05 +0300

Good day, everyone!
 
We are glad to present you our newly redesigned website that unites the best solutions from Feedreader family: Feedreader Online, Feedreader Lookup and Feedreader Browser.

Feedreader family includes quick, modern and easy-to-use services focused on finding, managing and bringing fresh and important news to your devices.
 
Feedreader Online is a decent feed reader which follows the traditions of Google Reader. It’s interface is really simple and intuitive indeed and can be easily used by a child.
 
Feedreader Browser lets you browse all interesting and popular feeds and find channels for subscription. With its help you can find news related to any terms, browse feeds from famous resources and get even more interesting feeds related to your needs right away from your browser.
 
Feedreader Lookup is a search tool that helps finding proper feeds all over the Internet. It’s fully compatible with Feedreader Browser, which means that you can see the feeds content, subscribe to the channels you find interesting, and keep them aggregated in one feed.




Feedreader Online as a great alternative to Google Reader

Thu, 14 Mar 2013 18:38:00 +0300

Unexpected news has reached us today: Google Reader is closing on July 1. The world's most popular feed reader has caught many of us off guard and puzzled as to what RSS tools to use now.

This is where our Feedreader Online comes to the rescue as one of the best Google Reader alternatives. Combined with the recently launched Feedreader Lookup, it allows you to search, subscribe to and view all of your favorite feeds online. Loads of new features and optimizations we are planning to launch in the near future will make using Feedreader Online even more comfortable, so hopefully, in three and a half months you won't even notice Google Reader has shut down.




Feedreader Connect for Linux available

Wed, 04 Jan 2012 19:57:31 +0300

It has been quite long time when we have announced something. That does not mean that Feedreader is dead. We have some corporate projects with what we have been busy.
 
But now it's time for new announcement. We are announcing Feedreader Connect Updater Linux version. It's meant to run on linux console and uses MySQL as database backend.
 
Please refer to our site for information about Feedreader Connect. It runs the same way in both Windows and Linux.

 
Feedreader Connect Updater is available for download from here.
 
This version expires in the end of 2012. You can test it and use it as much as needed as long it's a noncommercial venture. In case you woul like to purchase Feedreader Connect for linux please contact us.
 
Why should I use Feedreader Updater?
 
This software is meant for populating database with articles from the RSS feeds. Developers can create websites that base on the data from Feedreader. It's also possible to create different analysis engines that analyze the data from Feedreader. In near future we will also present Feedreader Anywhere for everybody to download. Feedreader Anywhere is web version of Feedreader with multi user support.
 

How to run Feedreader Updater for linux?
 
First make sure that you have running MySQL server. Then make sure that mysql client libraries are installed. Then download the executable. Place it in linux machine. Create config file frcupdater.conf like this:
 
[misc]
running=1
frconnect_dbname=feedreader
dbWorkerThreadCount=10
dbServerIPandInst=localhost
dbLoginname=root
dbPassword=
logfiledir=/root/frc
 

and then run from console :
 
/home/USER/frcupdater /home/USER/frcupdater.conf
 
If you want verbose output then please add -v like this:
 
/home/USER/frcupdater -v /home/USER/frcupdater.conf
 
If you want frcupdater to run on background then start it without -v switch and add & mark to the end of command line. BTW - you can run multiple instances of frcupdater at the same time. Just make them use different databases.

If you have any technical questions then please contact us by our email. Forums are currently closed because a lot of spam.




Sites running on top of Feedreader Connect - give it a try

Tue, 12 Oct 2010 15:43:20 +0300

Sometimes you want your own portal. And you want it fast. And you do not want to develop it. You have some interesting feeds that you are reading and an organization (or a bunch of friends) who in your opinion should like to read the feeds, too. Till this time quite only way of giving feeds out to your friends or co-workers has been the RSS way (like Feedreader) or using Google Reader and reading list functionality. But these technologies are sometimes too difficult to understand for persons who are not into all this RSS stuff.
 
So here is the alternative. We have designed a system that runs on top of Feedreader Connect. And all we need to do for creating new news portal is giving it a domain name and specifing the feeds that you would like to be included in portal. And that's it. After 15 minutes news portal is ready.
 
We have some examples here :
 
www.techtrack.eu talks about gadgets. We have gathered best technology blogs and feed them into the system. There's also a section about Shanzhai technologies that I find really breaking then talking about technology future.
 
hkblogs.net is basically an aggregator of blogs talking about Hong Kong or blogs written by people living in Hong Kong. I really love Hong Kong, so creating a portal based on my favorite blogs is natural step :).
 

If you would like to test out your own portal then just write to us. We can create a demo for you.
 
RSS has taken a fast lane with free games and Free-Games.net has an RSS feed for their subscribers to get the best free games available.
