Brian Barrett, writing for Wired:
The difference between getting news from an RSS reader and getting it from Facebook or Twitter or Nuzzel or Apple News is a bit like the difference between a Vegas buffet and an a la carte menu. In either case, you decide what you actually want to consume. But the buffet gives you a whole world of options you otherwise might never have seen.
Great analogy, and also a good article on why it’s time for an RSS revival.
Although not mentioned, I’d highly recommend giving Feedbin + Reeder a try too. Both are reasonably priced, very well designed and provide quite a few customization options.
