Web Feeds

I stopped using social networks a couple of years ago, and I never looked back. Social networks are full of bullshit and self-promotion and this kind of content doesn’t really resonate with me. I get it, some people want to know what’s up with their closest friends, but the thing is, most of the people we get constant updates from via the social media are not our close friends. Using a social network feels like being a guinea big in some kind of social experiment in human deception.

I get most of the news from RSS and Atom feeds. It’s so much better this way. The closest thing to this experience is Reddit. I was addicted to Reddit for quite a while, and it felt much better than other mainstream social media, probably because it was built around certain topics and not people, so it was much easier to find something interesting.
