Ever felt frustrated you can’t see all of your favorite media because they are all in different websites or simply you don’t have the time to go to all of them in a moment?
Those are the reasons why Feedly exists. Feedly is a platform, and application where you can follow the media of your desire and see it in the same platform. You can follow newspapers like The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Guardian and see it all in the same place. To understand how this works, it’s necessary to understand what Really Simple Syndication (RSS) means.
For my 10th assignment for my IT Fundamental Class, I created my Feedly account and added some of my favorite media.
