Social media is a fire hose of content. Algorithms try to tame that but they usually do it based on engagement rather than value. RSS is the antisocial media. I've been in the blog world since the mid-2000’s and subscribed to RSS feeds in one form or another since I got into blogging.
I have a large list of feeds and I have a short list of feeds for different types of reading. My large list includes news sites that tend to publish a dozen plus articles a day, while my short list is calmer. Fewer, higher quality posts.
The result: I read a lot. The links you find on this site by and large came from an RSS feed.
These are a few of the many sites that I subscribe to.
