If you’re like me, pretty much everyone you know is posting stuff to the Internet these days. Most of my friends have blogs of some sort. My cousin also plows a ton of baby pics onto Flickr every week. Even my grandma is on Facebook!
How do I keep track of all this activity? On My Yahoo of course!
Over the last two posts, we covered how to add content to My Yahoo via Add to My Yahoo buttons and RSS. Now that you know how, you can create a special page to follow your friends and family.
Here’s how I do it.
First: I want to keep My Yahoo! organized, so I put all my friends’ activity on its own tab. So I click “New Tab,” and then call my fresh canvas “The Best People in the Universe.”
Second: I navigate to my friends’ blogs, Flickr feeds, Twitter, Facebook updates or whatever they update most frequently and look for Add to My Yahoo buttons and RSS logos.
After I add my friend’s feeds to My Yahoo, I drag my friends to my “Best People” tab, which I know they’ll appreciate more than when I drag them to my favorite noisy punk concerts.
Ta-da! Now I’ve got a hot, instant connection to my friends. When my old roommate finally dumps her slobby boyfriend, I’ll know. When my cousin’s baby starts reading Proust, I’ll know.
Now if I could just make a tab that tells me when my boss is watching…
