We all have different ways of keeping up with the news, whether it’s international events, local sports or tidbits related to our professions. Many people use RSS feed readers regularly to quickly scan the headlines from all their favorite news sites and blogs before setting off to the specific sites to read more. I’m curious which news reader (or readers) you use and why you use it. Does it have specific features you like? Is it easy to use? Feel free to include personalized news sites such as My Yahoo or Netvibes if that’s where you go to read your news feeds. And if you get feeds sent to you by email, tell us about that. I’ll try to tally up the various services used, and will run the more interesting responses (and reasons) in next week’s Your Take Roundup.
