How to use IFTTT to Automate

You may think of the Web as a big tubular mesh of interconnectedness, but really, apps and sites tend to be more like islands than Kumbaya-singing cooperative circles. Evernote does not seamlessly save your notes to Dropbox. The Facebook photos you are tagged in do not automatically post to your Flickr account. Articles you save in Feedly do not push themselves to Pocket for later reading.

As explained below, IFTTT changes all that, bringing your various Web-service ingredients together into a smart, automatic, and, above all else, connected Internet stew. Yes, IFTTT makes the Web both scrumptious and ridiculously powerful, and we're going to show you how to brew up some deliciously useful recipes, as well as highlight some awesome IFTTT tasks that others have already created.

Easy Way to Subscribe to Twitter via RSS

Last month, Twitter unfortunately killed-off RSS feeds for users of the service. Subscribing to your own Twitter feed is a great way to archive your tweets and make them searchable through whatever RSS Reader you’re using. Of course, now that Google Reader, too, has been killed-off, most of the other readers available right now do not have a search feature. However, most are promising to deliver that ability soon.

Feedly Replaces Google Reader

Feedly  launched in 2008 as a sort of alternative skin for Google Reader. Its interface was cleaner and more colorful, although Google Reader provided the engine behind Feedlys content-delivery system. Shortly after Google announced in March that it would shut Google Reader, Feedly declared that it would build its own backend engine; it was implemented in June.

The switch to Feedly may be born of necessity for Google Reader devotees, but it is hardly a sacrifice. Feedlys design and interface are more pleasant and intuitive than Googles, and keeping up with new content on the web is flat-out more fun.

To add content, hit the search icon at the top right corner of Feedly's main screen and a menu slides gracefully into view. From here, browse through several topics from among Feedlys featured choices, search for the title of a blog or publication with an RSS feed, or type the URL for the sites RSS feed into Feedlys search box.

Digg Reader Adds Top Requested Features

Digg Reader, the Betaworks-backed alternative to the now-dead Google Reader, is making progress in becoming a more solidified platform for serious feed reading. Shortly after its launch a couple of weeks ago, it switched on the ability to display unread counts for feeds and folders, and last night, it added two more of users’ top requested features, the ability to view only unread items and the mark as unread option.

In the grand scheme of things, these are minor upgrades to a long-term roadmap where Digg envisions building a more fully fledged RSS reading experience – not just one that is on par with where Google Reader left off, but one that eventually extends beyond the original feature set to include things like a view into the popularity of posts across your network, advanced social-media sharing capabilities, and of course, the ability to feed posts to Digg.coms front page.

Google Alerts Gets the Axe

Google is really bidding a thorough goodbye to everything RSS this week. Not only did the company shut down the popular Google Reader for good on Monday, it has also stopped sending Google Alerts by RSS, according to Search Engine Land.

Users who want to be notified by Google Alerts on specific search phrases or topics, but who don’t want the results clogging their inbox, will no longer be able to send them to Google Reader. Since Google Reader is now dead, the search giant is re-directing all Google Alerts that used to show up in your Reader to an email account of your choice.

Google Graveyard

Ever since the advent of the internet there have been an untold amount of companies based around web technologies that have come and gone. The dot-com bubble of the 1990s filtered out many of the winners while shedding the losers. Over the years start-ups came and went, were bought, or just failed.

The Real Reason Google Wants to Kill RSS

Interesting article about why Google no longer wishes to support RSS Feeds.

RSS represents the antithesis of this new world: it is completely open, decentralized, and owned by nobody, just like the web itself. It allows anyone, large or small, to build something new and disrupt anyone else they would like because nobody has to fly six salespeople out first to work out a partnership with anyone elses salespeople.

Here is a list of platform agnostic alternatives that should help make the transition as painless as possible.

RSS Reader Comparison

Feedly, one of the most popular RSS readers, has added functionalities to replace some of the actions users used to be able to do with Google Reader, like hosting feed subscriptions and offering a fully functional IFTTT channel.

With so many companies pushing their tickets into your hands, how can you decide which RSS train to ride?

If Google Can Not Get RSS to Work Why Are Others Trying?

For anyone who has not been following this with pathological focus, here is the quick version: An RSS reader is a way to pull in feeds of articles from various websites, and people who revel in information overload love them. Google created one, called Google Reader, six years ago, and as it was state of the art at the time, it essentially took over the market. But then Google decided that several million news junkies were not worth its time, and on March 13 said it was getting out of the RSS business, opening the door to a handful of new companies to get in. The climax comes next week, when Google flips the switch and casts out its RSS enthusiasts.

Some might interpret the fact that one of the Internets largest, richest companies abandoned this idea as a red flag. Not Feedly, Digg, AOL, Newsblur, and others, which are quickly developing their own readers to fill the Google Reader vacuum. It is not that they believe everyone wants to immerse themselves in an endless sea of headlines. Instead, they are betting that the technology will open up larger news-reading markets.
