Are you new to mergeflow.stream? Here we show you how easy it is to set up a new topic profile.
Assume you are interested in news from selected technology blogs. Perhaps you already have a set of blogs in mind, or perhaps you went to a service like technorati, ctrlq, or blekko to find your technology blogs.
We took a stopwatch to verify that one can in fact set up a new topic profile with a few feeds in under 5 minutes. Here are the steps we took:
Log in to your mergeflow.stream account — 20 seconds (time total = 20 seconds):
Go to “Manage” — 5 seconds (time total = 25 seconds):
Add profile (enter a name for the topic profile, and, if you like, add a description) — 30 seconds (time total = 55 seconds):
Add a feed:
We added eight feeds for starters. This took 8 x 25 = 200 seconds.
So we took a total of 255 seconds = 4 minutes, 15 seconds. Done! Now mergeflow.stream does the rest.
Here you can see the topic profile we just created: http://mergeflow.net/profiles/news/tech_blogs . If you have a mergeflow account, you can add this profile to your dashboard, or clone it and add more feeds to it.
