So I’m curious… how many of you use personalized start pages (i.e. Net Vibes, iGoogle, and PageFlakes), feed readers (i.e. Google Reader, Bloglines), or both?
I use both.
My feed reader (Google Reader) allows me to keep up with my world on a very micro level. I may check it once or twice a day. It tells me what’s going on with everyone from those I’m really close with to those who I’m not. It’s great for something with more then 35 feeds.
My start page (Net Vibes) helps me keep up with my world on a very macro level. I check this all the time. It’s usually open all the time. It tells me about what’s going on with with the people and things that are the MOST important to me. It’s great for less then 35 feeds.
I spend a lot of time sifting through fire houses of information. So I feel that I’ve gotten good and getting through my 500+ RSS feeds. I realize that I’m like less then 1 % of the population.
I’d bet around 15% of people feel comfortable with more then 35 feeds. I’d say about 85% are comfortable with less then 35 feeds.
So… yeah, what do you think? What tools do you use and for what?
