…on feeding and reading: google reader vs netvibes

Posted in Blogosphere, Food for Thought by yoshi on April 21, 2009

ok so being an avid blogger i pretty much get the WTF response when i tell them i don’t use rss feeds or readers or whatever they’re called.

call me old fashioned but i like the ability to check out blogs when i feel like checking, not when they are instantly updated. this feeling is much like the way i refuse to facebook and twitter via mobile.

i suppose its because i still want to remain in touch with “reality.”

i’m in front of the computer more than half of the day so i feel that its really healthy to step away from the e-world, plus i’d rather keep SOME anonymity right???

however, i DO see many of the perks of participating and signing up for google reader or netvibes. since i contribute and write about upcoming products/events/interviews etc for a few of my other blogs, its essential that i stay on top of my game, and i can’t always count on pr or random emails telling me “hey, check this out happening next week!”

i think i’ll give it a shot.

either with google reader or netvibes.

at first glance google reader is totally simplified. you can create folders and just subscribe on the spot to various blogs you follow.

netvibes provides different widgets you can customize. so you can have your gmail, facebook, twitter, blog1, blog2, entertainment, lifestyle shit right on one screen. pretty cool. (i think i’m just attracted to the design of it).

we’ll see how long it takes me to give up. (i signed up today for both to test, i only lasted 15 min.)

what do you guys think?

google reader:

reader1

netvibes:

reader2
