WM Site-Of-The-Day - FeedHub

Posted on 10.09.2007

The hundreds of RSS feeds I am subscribed to and that I read regularly are starting to take their toll on me. It usually takes me at least one hour to get through everything (over 1000 items each day). Looking to save a little time and stay informed I was excited to learn about Feedhub. If you're experiencing (blog burnout) anything like me you should check it out.

FeedHub is a service which filters the RSS feeds of your blog subscriptions and learns from your reading behavior. It's easy to get started. Just upload your OPML file from your existing feedreader (FeedHub gives guidance for users of Google Reader, Bloglines, etc.). The feeds added are then analyzed (by monitoring click-through behavior) to learn more about your content preferences - FeedHub calls them "memes". A new feed is then created that contains only the content that matched those preferences. Word on the street is that over time FeedHub will learn more about these preferences and create a better feed - I certainly hope so - I'll keep my fingers crossed for that. After you create the new combined FeedHub feed, it will take up to 24 hours to start seeing content. After that, content will appearing reguarly every three of four hours.
