Yahoo Mail Rss Reader (Screenshots!) Integrates Blogs Into Email

Yahoo Mail RSS Reader Integrates Blogs into Email

Yahoo has announced the extension of its My Yahoo RSS (Really Simple Syndication) services with the addition of RSS feeds in the new beta version of Yahoo! Mail (available by invite only). The Yahoo Mail RSS Reader offering is just one part of the RSS Alert puzzle that Yahoo has launched in its RSS Feed Alert service. This service will allow Yahoo members to be updated via Yahoo Mail, Yahoo Messenger or SMS Messaging whenever the RSS feeds that they have set to subscribe to are updated.

The addition of RSS feeds in Yahoo Mail offers users more of a one-stop scenario of monitoring their incoming mail, top news stories, and favorite blogs. Just as I was typing up this story and about to get lazy and just quote the Yahoo Mail press release, my Yahoo Mail Beta updated with the new RSS feed reader, so I am literally testing this live.

The default feeds in my Yahoo Mail feed reader are the feeds I subscribe to for my My Yahoo page, one for the Search Engine Journal and the other for Yahoo Sports Major League Baseball News. I regularly subscribe to more feeds, but do so in Google Reader and Bloglines, as Yahoo has yet to win me over with their My Yahoo RSS tool.

Unsubscribing RSS Feeds : In order to delete these feeds from my Yahoo Mail RSS Reader, it seems that I will have to go into the My Yahoo interface and edit them there, which could take about 5 extra minutes. An unsubscribe button would be appreciated, as one obstacle Yahoo is sure to face with their new Yahoo Mail RSS Reader is the intimacy and reliance on a web mail inbox to be personalized and secure. By having Reuters and MarketWatch appear in my Yahoo Mail RSS Reader, I already feel a bit violated. And as with emails, these ‘feeds’ should offer the option to easily unsubscribe without the end user having to go through multiple Yahoo pages to do so.

The official Yahoo Mail Beta Updates Feed! Yahoo, the social media 2.0 company, is reaching out to connect with its Yahoo Mail users via RSS. Nice touch, as although I normally wouldn’t read an email from Yahoo Mail, I’m more than willing to read their RSS feed. I think I’ll keep this one on my list.

Adding an RSS Feed : Now that I’ve gotten rid of the unwanted feeds in my Yahoo Mail RSS Reader, I’m going to try adding a blog.

I was thinking about adding a search related blog like Threadwatch or Search Engine Roundtable, but I have feeds from search blogs popping out all over the place, and think that I’ll add something different : Defamer, the LA Gossip Rag.

Yahoo Mail RSS Tools : While reading the Donald Trump LA Apprentice post I notice that Yahoo Mail allows me to forward posts from blog to my friends, post to Yahoo 360 blog, or tag it and save to MyWeb, a-ha! Social Media!

Yahoo says there is more to come, so I’m going to sit back and play with their new Yahoo Mail Reader for a couple of days and see if there is anything new that pops up. I do believe that Yahoo Mail Beta is only available for testing by US based users. So in the meantime Duncan, Darren, Sushubh, Nick and others, I hope that you enjoyed the screenshots and live blogging!

Follow For Follow On Instagram: The Ultimate Guide

The follow for follow method on Instagram is a great way to grow your followers on Instagram.

However, for some of us, we’re accustomed to follow a bunch of users in a list.

This is a bad thing.

It’s important to realize that whenever you’re following someone at random, the probability of them following you back is very low. This is because of a couple of reasons.

Firstly, people are increasingly wary of spam followers. Most likely, someone that follows you out of the blue just hopes for a follow back in return.

Hence, they wouldn’t bother engaging much on your posts, or not at all. They’re what we like to call ghost followers.

Secondly, you haven’t broken the ice with them. In other words, they are complete strangers and are less likely to follow you back.

So how do we utilize this method effectively?

In this post, we’re going to take a look at how you can increase your followers with the follow for follow method.

By the end of this post, you can use this method to skyrocket your Instagram followers right away.

Let’s begin!

Follow for Follow on Instagram (Table of Contents)

What is the follow for follow method on Instagram?

Basically, the follow for follow method is the act of following as many users as possible (preferably in your niche) for the intention of a follow back. This method has been around for quite some time now.

In fact, it originated in the earliest days of Instagram. This method is also reinforced by a bunch of different hashtags such as #followforfollow, #followforfollowback, and #f4f.

However, the people who use these hashtags most likely aren’t going to follow you back because they’re using it just for the sake of others following them without them actually reciprocating.

Quite recently, the recent section of the hashtag #followforfollow has been removed to stop the influx of fake accounts, spammers, and bots.

A part of Instagram’s service is to ‘offer personalized opportunities to create, connect, communicate, discover, and share’.

Technically, this method isn’t violating Instagram’s Terms of Service.

This is because if you’re following others in your niche that you want to connect with, the notion that the person will follow you back is entirely up to them.

Moreover, the following limit of Instagram is 7,500. This is a sufficient restriction on its own that speaks for itself.

Anyhow, if you’re following users that are in your niche/mutuals, enjoy their content and truly want a connection (follow back), it’s justified and you’re more likely to get a follow back.

How it works

Note: This is a recap for the article, ‘Follow for Follow on Instagram: Tips and Tricks‘.

Here are three methods. The first being the worst and the last being the best.

Feel free to skip to the last method if you’re looking for the most reliable one.

The old school method

The old school follow for follow method works like this:

Follow as many random users as possible in a list.

Pray and hope for a follow back.

As you can see, this is rather ineffective because of a couple of reasons.

Firstly, you’re less likely to get a follow back because people will regard you as spam.

Secondly, you’re prone to be action blocked (covered later in the restrictions section below) by Instagram and you can’t follow people for a period of time.

This method used to work in the past when Instagram was fairly new, but it’s almost redundant today.

In the past, Instagram hasn’t implemented any follow restrictions. This means that you can spam follow as many users and you won’t get action blocked (good old days).

Additionally, there used to be no following limit, so you could follow an infinite number of users. And yes, there are some users who followed millions of users (who abused the following action to the max).

Unfortunately, the days of spam are over as restrictions are getting stricter and stricter to prevent automation.

The new school method

What’s a newer method then? A more current follow for follow method is by following others in a list and in timed intervals:

Follow users in your niche or of your competitors’ in intervals.

Like a few of their posts to grab their attention.

Hope for a follow back.

This method is more refined than the previous one because it relies on intervals and grabbing attention. This means that the follow back rate is going to be much higher than before.

However, there is still one underlying issue. A very important one.

You’re still not breaking the ice with users that you’ve followed so the person is less likely to follow you back.

For example, if you know someone in-person, you’ll need to ask them for their username to be able to follow them on Instagram.

If you’re following someone using this method, you’re still not providing any context and the person is less likely to follow you back because you aren’t mutual.

A great way to solve this is by direct messaging the user you’ve followed and politely ask them to follow you back. But this is a bit odd.

The most current (and effective) method

The most current and effective method is by joining follow for follow communities. It’s one of the easiest ways to grow your followers, which reinforces the follow for follow method.

You can join our follow for follow community for free today on our website.

You can find a full list of those communities here: List of Instagram Follow for Follow Groups.

Case Study

We’ve created a new Instagram account and tried the follow for follow method using various follow for follow groups for three months.

Here are our results:

Week 1

In the first week, we followed 212 users and 180 of them followed back.

Using simple math, 180/212 x 100 = 84.9. That’s a follow back rate of 85%!

Week 3

In the third week, we followed 451 users (up by 200+) and 413 of them followed back.

413/451 x 100 = 91.5. That’s a follow back rate of 92%, up by 10%!

Week 5

In the fifth week, we followed 751 users (up by 200+ once more) and 701 of them followed back.

701/751 x 100 = 93.3%. That’s a follow back rate of 93%, up by 1%!

Week 7

In week 7, we followed 1054 users (up by 300+) and 1001 of them followed back (up by exactly 300).

We also joined a couple more follow for follow communities outside of Reddit which further expanded our followers.

1001/1054 x 100 = 94.9%. That’s a follow back rate of 95%, up by 2%!

Week 12

In the last week (exactly 3 months), we followed 1467 users (up by 400+) and 1404 of them followed back (up by 400+).

1404/1467 x 100 = 95.7%. That’s a follow back rate of 96%, up by 1%!

In summary, we went from 0 to 1,400 followers in 3 months by joining various follow for follow communities.

It’s noteworthy that we did use several tips that had contributed to the follow-back rate. You can read more about them in the next section.

What we learned

Note: This is another recap for the article, ‘Follow for Follow on Instagram: Tips and Tricks‘.

During the past three months of utilizing the follow for follow method and joining several follow for follow communities, we’ve learnt quite a lot.

Follow for follow communities work tremendously well, especially for new accounts (if you use them correctly)

There are a few pointers you’ll have to follow in order to utilize these communities to its maximum potential.

Firstly, it’s extremely important to send a direct message to the user that you’ve followed that you came from the respective community. This will pretty much guarantee you a follow back.

Otherwise they would have no clue that you came from the community without looking at mutual followers.

Secondly, liking a few of a user’s posts immediately after following them is a great way to grab a person’s attention. After all, Instagram users feed on followers and likes because they are means of gratification.

Lastly, following users in the same niche as you will increase the chance of them following you back.

Always follow and direct message others in intervals and don’t spam

Instagram’s algorithm is super sensitive when it comes to spam.

You’ll have to be sure not to spam follow or direct message others or you will be action-blocked. The action block can last for a couple of of hours or a few days depending on your account’s status.

The quickest way you can get action blocked is when you use an action without stopping (e.g. following users without stopping in a list, or direct messaging users one after another).


It’s an actionable way to grow your Instagram followers where you can see near-instant results

But let’s be honest, they don’t perform as well as we hope them to. This is why some people result in purchasing fake followers which is one of the worst things you can do.

Not only it violates Instagram’s Terms of Service but it also ruins your engagement rates.

A great alternative is by joining follow for follow communities and connect with people who actually enjoy the content that you post.

By joining follow for follow communities (reinforcing the follow for follow method), you get the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who will follow back and engage frequently.

You don’t have to post much; or at all to grow your followers

A great benefit about the follow for follow method (especially if you’re participating in follow for follow communities) is that you don’t have to post much to grow your followers.

This is because your followers aren’t going to be finding you from hashtags or the explore page. Instead, they’ll find you through your post in the respective follow for follow community.

If you don’t have much content prepared or effective hashtags you can use, joining follow for follow communities is the perfect solution for you.

It can drive awareness and traffic to your business

By utilizing the follow for follow method and joining communities, you can drive awareness and traffic to your business from people all around the world.

Because of this, your business isn’t restricted to just friends or family, but other people who might be interested in what you’re offering.

It also provides an opportunity for you to pitch your product/services or provide offers/discount codes.

It’s very time-consuming

Be prepared to dedicate hours of your time daily if you want to utilize this method to grow your followers.

This method isn’t for everyone because it takes lots of work ethic.

Although the method guarantees almost instant results (follow backs), you’ll have to spend a lot of time to follow and direct message those users one-by-one.

With reference to the case study above, we’ve spent approximately 3-6 hours daily just following and messaging users in intervals.

It can be a long and exhausting process but it definitely pays off.

You’ll have tons of photos on your feed

Because you’ll be excessively following others, your feed will be filled with lots of posts.

It may be hard to keep up with every post as you’ll find yourself struggling to like each and every one of them if you’re not consistent.

Sometimes, there’s no other choice but to mute users who spam too many posts. Otherwise, you might have to spend several minutes of your time just liking user’s posts on your feed.

You’ll have to constantly keep track of ghost followers and users who didn’t follow you back

It’s mandatory to have an Instagram app to track ghost followers, people that unfollow you and ghost followers who never engage in any of your posts.

Due to the fact that you’re going to be following lots of users, you’ll have to constantly track people that unfollow you or ghost followers on a daily basis to clean your ratio.

If you aren’t consistent with this, your follow to following ratio and feed will be negatively affected.


There’s a common misconception between two methods. The follow/unfollow method against the follow for follow method.

The follow for follow method is not the same as the follow/unfollow method.

These are two completely different methods with different applications.

Follow for follow vs. follow/unfollow

Follow for followFollow/unfollowFollow and stay followed.Follow, then unfollow after a period of time.Usually reinforced by communities.Follow others in a list.Often engages in posts.Rarely engage in posts.Generous with likes and follow backs.Selfish, and does not want to reciprocate.Shows some interest in your content.Doesn’t show interest in your content.


Note: This is a recap for the article, ‘Instagram Action Blocked: How to Fix And Prevent It?‘.

Before diving into the follow for follow method, or joining follow for follow communities, it’s always important to be wary of certain Instagram restrictions.

You should never follow a bunch of people at one go. Similarly, you should never direct message a bunch of people at one go.

Here’s the safest way you can follow to prevent being action blocked:

Follow others in an interval of 5-10 mins.

Direct message others in an interval of 5-10 mins.

We’ve tested following and direct messaging others in intervals of 10 mins and it seems to be the safest interval that prevents your account from being action blocked.

If you follow these guidelines accordingly, you will not be action blocked.

Make Money Selling Your Old Tech

The good news is, you can probably find a market for the gear you no longer want. Unloading spent gadgets can put cash in your pocket that you can reinvest toward the latest technology.

Companies shedding old electronics used to have to pay other companies to help with disposal and with legal compliance. Now, however, you have numerous options for handling the process yourself.

In addition to the broader online marketplaces of Craigslist and eBay, specialized Web-based services will pay you for, and then resell or recycle, used electronics. In many cases the amount they’ll pay for goods that are only several seasons old can amount to more than half of the initial ticket price. What’s the best way to navigate this market?

How to Sell

For the greatest resale value later, when you buy new, keep the original box, cables, and software intact. When you’re ready to give your gear a new home, polish that laptop up and send it packing with its manual enclosed.

It takes only minutes to look up a quote for an item on a reselling service’s Website and then request a prepaid shipping envelope. Within a few days you can send away the unwanted stuff and then receive the money via PayPal or a check in the mail.

What to Sell

Smartphones and laptops–particularly from Apple–tend to fetch the highest prices. Digital cameras, MP3 players, HDTVs, storage drives, and inkjet printers are among the hardest sells. If you hold on to any product for long enough that its resale value evaporates, you might as well donate it to a school, or maybe to a tech museum.

Cell Phone Recycling

You can find a plethora of phone-recycling services that pay a pretty penny for relatively new smartphones. To start, EcoSquid lets you search multiple Websites to compare offers for old handsets, and then takes a share if you make a transaction with a referred service. A number of sites specialize in iPhone recycling and trade-ins.

I found it hard on both sites to browse listings casually, however. CelltradeUSA provides a form through which you can contact other users, and charges $20 if you complete a trade. Once you list your phone and service contract, you have to wait for potential takers to reach you. I could find only one iPhone owner with an AT&T contract similar to my own, and no BlackBerry users with the equivalent. On CellSwapper, searches weren’t working after I made several attempts of seeking someone to switch early out of a 24-month contract with AT&T to new Verizon service.

Among the services that pay for old phones but don’t deal with contracts, Sell Your Cell, and Simply Sellular offered some of the highest quotes–up to $144 for a 16GB iPhone 3G, and $110 for a BlackBerry Bold 9000. (See the chart at right for more details.) If you want to sell more than phones, sites with a broader focus, such as BuyMyTronics, Gazelle, and NextWorth (more below), offered competitive price quotes.

It’s wise to wipe text messages, contacts, calendar items, and other data off a phone even if you’re sending it to a service that promises to do the same–especially when those security pledges are vaguely worded. Remote wiping is available for the iPhone with a MobileMe account, and for the BlackBerry 6 operating system. For businesses, software such as that of AirWatch can provide deeper device management.

Instant Quotes, Simple Shipping

Comparing quotes for the same products, I saw few drastic differences among the sites. A 16GB, first-generation iPod Touch would fetch $51 on Gazelle, a dollar more on BuyMyTronics, or $63 on NextWorth. The same kind of iPod in varying levels of condition was going for between $100 and $200 on Craigslist in the San Francisco Bay Area, and had sold for between $58 broken and $148 in great shape on eBay.

Price quotes showed a bigger range for larger and less-popular items. BuyMyTronics quoted $41, NextWorth quoted $66, and Gazelle quoted $95 for a 1GHz, 60GB Apple iBook G4. A Garmin Nuvi 785T GPS device, not found on BuyMyTronics, would garner $35 at Gazelle and almost $84 at NextWorth. For older, less desirable goods, such as a Canon SD400 Elph digital camera, you’d be lucky to get $10. I couldn’t find any takers for a year-old Canon inkjet or an older HP laser printer.

As for security, each service pledges to wipe data from your equipment, but the details are relatively slim.

Brett Mosley, CEO of BuyMyTronics, says his company resells tens of thousands of units–more than two-thirds of what it buys–on other sites, including Amazon and eBay. It refurbishes another 15 percent of the items it receives, and sends another 15 percent off for recycling in first-world countries.

Vendor Trade-In Programs

If you’re a brand loyalist, trading in a product through the company that made it can help you afford a same-name upgrade. Apple offers gift cards toward new purchases if you send an approved Mac or PC laptop or desktop to partner PowerON, which provides a prepaid shipping label and a box. On the other hand, recycling a PC or monitor through Apple partner WeRecycle involves paying a $30 charge.

If you’re buying a new PC from Dell, that manufacturer will take any other old computer from you for free. The quarterly Greenpeace Guide to Greener Electronics can tip you off to recycling options from other big electronics brands, although most don’t provide payment or credit.

Selling on Craigslist Selling on eBay

eBay users were willing to pay a range of prices for a 16GB, first-generation iPod Touch: from $56 for a broken device up to $148 for one with cosmetic wear and tear. An Apple iBook 1GHz G4 fetched between $40 and $170, depending on the condition. Don’t forget to review eBay’s fees before launching an auction.

Selling Media Items on Glyde

If you have a surplus of DVDs, CDs, video games, and books, Glyde is an up-and-coming service for selling and buying media. Unlike with eBay, users involved in a transaction don’t learn each other’s identity; and unlike with Craigslist, buyers can pay by credit card. Red Dead Redemption for the PlayStation 3, for example, is selling on Glyde for about $41, including shipping. NextWorth says it will pay $28 for the same game with normal wear and the original case. Amazon offers store credit for used games.

Selling on Amazon In-Store Programs

RadioShack accepts some equipment that other services do not, such as car stereo amplifiers, radar detectors, and mice. In exchange for a store gift card, its Trade & Save program offers prepaid shipping of phones, GPS devices, cameras and camcorders, gaming consoles, games, and MP3 players.

The TechForward program at RadioShack, Office Depot, and online via Tiger Direct and CompUSA stores offers a resale program of sorts for consumers who upgrade frequently. You buy a TechForward plan at the time of a new product purchase. Six months later, you can return the product and receive half of its initial price, which you can use toward a newer model.

Printer-Cartridge Recycling

Makers of printers increasingly offer free mail-in recycling for empty ink cartridges, but you can earn back some of the fortune you lost buying printer consumables. Staples stores offer modest coupons for bringing in spent ink cartridges.

Donate Gear for a Tax Break

Giving away tech for resale through a group such as Goodwill can result in tax deductions for charitable contributions, with the side benefit of enhanced community relations. The nonprofit TechSoup has information on giving equipment to other nonprofits.


Businesses must take extra steps to ensure that their getting rid of old gear complies with the law. In some municipalities you can be fined for tossing electronics into Dumpsters. The federal Resource Conservation and Recovery Act makes it illegal to carelessly dispose of goods containing hazardous materials, such as lead-laced CRT monitors. Electronics make up 2 percent of municipal waste and are the fastest-growing portion of the waste stream, according to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Saying good-bye to old computers and hard drives isn’t just about getting rid of the equipment, but also clearing the data they store. Companies dealing with sensitive financial information have to consider the Sarbanes-Oxley and Gramm-Leach-Bliley acts. Those who work in healthcare must follow HIPAA regulations.

Responsible Recycling

There’s no law against shipping electronics overseas to developing nations for unsafe recycling–and that’s a problem. Just because you’re selling electronics to a willing buyer doesn’t mean that the product will wind up disassembled in a way that doesn’t pollute or harm workers.

“Typically cell phones have a better reuse and recycling market than computers do,” says Sheila Davis, executive director of the Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition. And companies reselling phones to developing nations are usually doing the right thing environmentally.

Only 10 percent of obsolete computers, however, are recycled according to high human-rights and ecological standards.

Only recyclers certified through the Basel Action Network’s e-Stewards program are certified not to ship equipment overseas for unsafe labor, not to use prison labor, and not to incinerate items.

Seven Apps That Make It Much Easier To Work Remotely

The internet has transformed the way we live and communicate with each other, which means it’s likely you have colleagues and clients spread across the world. With the right phone apps, you can make sure this geographical diversity doesn’t hurt productivity, and ensure that everyone on your team is on the same page (sometimes literally).

These collaboration apps don’t just have to be for the workplace, either—you may also find them useful for planning events or sharing information with family and friends.

1. Google Drive

Google Drive is free for Android and iOS.

2. Notion

If you’ve never heard of Notion, now you know what it looks like. Notion

One of the newer arrivals in the collaboration app space, Notion doesn’t have too many restrictions. In fact, its interface largely stays out of the way, leaving you (and your team) to use it however you like: as a free-form notepad, a place to manage tasks, a document library, or whatever else you need.

Notion is free or from $4 a month for Android and iOS.

3. Dropbox Paper

Dropbox Paper is, in some ways, a cut-down version of Google Docs. But that simplicity isn’t necessarily a negative—it makes it easier to focus on what you’re actually collaborating on. The app is essentially a free-form group notebook and document editor, giving you and your team space to work together on text, images, timetables, and more.

Dropbox Paper is free for Android and iOS.

4. Trello

Use Trello to keep your team on track… or to plan a new kitchen. Trello

Trello is one of those apps that looks pretty straightforward on the surface, but gets more complex (and useful) as you dig deeper. It’s also quite hard to explain, because at its core it’s just a bunch of cards sorted into a series of columns—but you can use those columns and cards in a host of different ways, depending on what your team needs.

Perhaps the most common way people use Trello is to keep track of projects: who’s doing what, how far along each task is, when deadlines are approaching, and so on. Users can tag cards with labels, due dates, usernames, and more, and if you upgrade from the free plan, you’ll get extras like board templates, app integration, and custom backgrounds.

Trello is free or from $10 a month for Android and iOS.

5. Evernote

Evernote has been around in some form since 2000, but it remains one of the best cross-platform note-taking and collaboration apps available. Evernote lets you easily and intuitively combine text, images, videos, links, lists, and more into a series of digital notebooks that can be tagged and categorized as you see fit.

Evernote is free or from $5 a month for Android and iOS.

6. Slack

Toby had better talk about office pets in that culture meeting. Slack

A staple of offices around the world, Slack is on a mission to make it easier for teams to work together, without getting weighed down by endless email chains or round-the-clock meetings. The strength of Slack lies not in what it is—a real-time chat client, basically—but in how well it implements that idea.

Slack is free or from $6.67 a month for Android and iOS.

7. Google Keep

We started with Google and we’ll end with Google (we told you it was good at web apps). Google Keep looks simple on the surface, but it’s actually quite a sophisticated note-taking and collaboration app, enabling you to share photos, text, lists, and links with other people. If you need to, you can quickly convert Notes into files for Google Docs, too.

When it comes to managing notes, tou’ve got plenty of flexibility. They can be color-coded, linked to reminders, and tagged with custom labels for easier organization (like work, family, or shopping). Sharing a note with one or more people is as simple as tapping the Collaborator option and entering email addresses.

Google Keep is free for Android and iOS.
