Today’s Technology of the week: Feedly. Here are all the details…
What is Feedly?
Feedly is an app and website that aggregates all of your news, feeds and online content into one place. It compiles news feeds from a whole load of sources for users to read and share with others.
What does it do?
Feedly has lots of different functions, firstly you can use the app to collect all of your different news feeds, blog posts, articles and other online material and store it in one place. You can use the app or the website to scan through headlines or read the entire article. You can share the content on social media via the app. Feedly, also lets you set up keyword searches, so you will see content relating to a particular topic. You can add secure content, so for example business reports. You can add YouTube channels and presentations. Basically Feedly lets you collect a lot of information in one place!
Why does it benefit Assistants?
I think Feedly can benefit Assistants in two different ways. Firstly, you can use it to collate all of the news, guides, career development content that is available for the PA industry. There is so many wonderful publications for Assistants it would be handy having it in one place. Secondly, your Executive also has a lot of stuff that they need to read. The Feedly app can be downloaded onto their tablet or smart phone and they can access the content in one place and read it when they are on the go.
Why is it Practically Perfect PA’s tech of the week?
I’ve been using Feedly for a while now. I like that I can read lots of different publications and share the content on social media from the app. Feedly has also got me through some pretty long nights with a young baby!
