Comments from some of those who selected Feedly as one of their Top 10 Tools in 2019

  • “the content curation choice. We spend a large part of the day online browsing the gigantic library called ‘internet’. But all articles and / or blog posts screen and check whether our favorite bloggers have written a new post, we leave that time-consuming task to Feedly. After all, Feedly, gives us a nice overview of content that we will probably find interesting. And since we switched to a paying account and made the integration with Slack, this process has become even easier.” Matt Vermeulen, Belgium https://www.winstonwolfe.be/tools-for-learning-2019-onze-selectie/”

  • “I use Feedly Pro every day to filter and curate content to me. I’ve set up key word searches and have various streams where content gets filtered to so that I have a steady stream of content to read.  From there, I share to social media (or save it to particular Boards) that I have created that allows me to keep them.” Helen Blunden, Australia http://activatelearning.com.au/2019/08/my-top-10-tools-for-learning-2/
