It is often the most essential thing like obtaining news feed. It is easier now to create a news feed that would suit your requirements as it is easy to customize it accordingly. Anything like politics to sports to technology, you have it all by creating custom news page related to that specific subject. However, often comes a time when you need to organize your news feeds to be able to streamline them properly.

The best way in which you can fetch your updates related to all new items is the RSS feeds. This can be easily customized and it is quick as well. These online services help you gain access using your account or an app for subscribing to your desired URLs. It works by creating a personalized account and adding the feeds to it that you would want to follow within your account. This way you are subscribed to it, it might look similar to your Inbox. The interface is that of a dashboard with populated list of news feeds. You have a snippet along with the URL that you can click to read the entire item. Then other thing is the categories of news items for example, the New York Times offers RSS feeds for specific sections like technology, general science, U.S. politics, and environmental science. You can subscribe to each of them as per your convenience.
You can use Digg Reader for managing your RSS Feeds. For using this tool you need an account with Google, Facebook or Twitter sign in. Other RSS feeds reading services that you can opt for include G2 Reader and Feedly.
We all love our interactions on Twitter and like the way everything shows up there. However, it is more about micro blogging, while you are still trying to figure out the news. You can create a list that will include Twitter accounts that saves your stuff. This is easier than following individual user. This way you can view each item instead of following individual accounts and get instant updates too without any hassle. Another great advantage that you have with lists is the feature of privacy that helps you keep it locked from public eye. This way you can keep your views and your news items away from prying eyes without bothering about what people might just see what you are following.
Here is how you can begin creating list on twitter: go to the Gear icon-> Lists-> Add account by clicking the Gear icon on the tweets or the page-> Add or Remove from Lists.
You can create your own news feed using the most popular app called Flipboard. The best part is the display that is as brilliant as a news magazine with inbox UI. This means that you have nothing as space constraint when it comes to RSS feeds. Another thing is that Flipboard is available for iPhone as well as Android users. Even though, the interface is not like news snippet it is more like an entire news item just the way it is displayed in a magazine with updated list. It is more like articles only that you have chosen according to your own interest. This comes handy when you need quick updated news.
Using Google Alerts
Even though, you already might be having a good idea about Google Alerts but do you know that you can use it to follow specific news. This can be done with using key words. Remember that you need to use specific keywords that are not generic in nature or else you will end up with a tool that is rendered useless at the end. You can get started by using your Google account login credentials and then entering keywords along with other filters that will help you fetch news feed in your e-mail inbox. RSS will create URL updates that match your terms and fetch you results from across web.
Using these above mentioned tools you will be able to keep an eye on updated news feed along with customizing your RSS feed.
