Do you actually go through all the BBC and read each article? Or do you just let it fill in your reader?

 

I had subscribed to some major news companies, and just couldnt filter the information.

I'm not sure I understand the question. They get sent to my RSS feed (I use NetNewsWire) and I can scroll through them to see 1 line summaries of each article. If it seems interesting or relevant to me, I'll read it - otherwise, I'll just skip over it (like the hundreds of articles that were posted regarding vuvuzelas).

 

Also - Ian, how long does it take you to read through your feeds, and how often do you check it?

I use Google Reader, but I only set it up about a month ago, so I don't have a strict routine yet. I probably devote an average 90 to 120 minutes reading these through the course of the day (home, work, school), but there are times I've fallen behind (like when I went to Costa Rica for a week and I marked most of the General News and Politics categories as read without even skimming). On an average weekday, my feeds post about 350 items, and I'll probably read about 25-50 of them in depth. I "share" about 3-5 items per day with my friends/Buzz followers.
