【生產力】用「RSS」訂閱代替Facebook追蹤,打造自己的「主動式閱讀」環境|小人物講股

|因為資訊爆炸而導致的”注意力的剝奪”,可能已經悄悄的降低你的生產力了

各位朋友,你現在是不是每天早上起床滑手機,就會被很多Facebook, Line, Instagram沒用的資訊轟炸。

或是你在youtube上看到許多有趣的開箱影片,很多東西都想要買,或是你買了很多的線上課程,卻一直沒有時間學習。

這些都是資訊爆炸時代的副產物,因為我們有太多的消費、學習、娛樂的管道,而天生貪小便宜的我們總是想要每個都有。

我們每天總是有非常多的”提醒”,讓你覺得我好像需要買這個、需要買那個。我好像需要買這一本書來看,我好像需要買一個課程來上,不然就會被其他人趕上,或者顯得很Low。

我留意到這是一個非常可怕的事情。

『一周工作四小時』的 Timothy Ferriss作者提出所謂的「低資訊飲食」,強調過多的資訊將會嚴重影響我們的生產力。

生產力=專注力*投入時間

如果我們盡可能的過濾掉多餘的資訊,保護我們的專注力,生產力就會相應大幅提升了!

其中,我覺得「停止使用社群媒體」是一個很棒的方法,也就是不用社群追蹤,改用「電子郵件」或是「RSS訂閱」。

 

 

|電子郵件大家都知道,那RSS是甚麼呢?

RSS的全名是Really Simple Syndication,是在社群媒體出現之前很重要的網路服務,能夠將你追蹤的網站透過推送的方式傳給你的閱讀器,這樣你就不用一個一個點開部落格查看有沒有更新文章。

每當你訂閱的網站有更新內容時,RSS就會將這些新內容推送到你所使用的閱讀器上。

RSS相較於社群追蹤的好處是,你可以訂閱自己真正想看的內容,而不是被Facebook的演算法帶著走。社群網站為了廣告營利,常常會把你可能不感興趣的內容,或是消費型的網站顯示在你的動態牆上。

我有幾個朋友也很喜歡用Facebook的”搶先看”功能,追蹤喜歡的粉絲專頁,但我很少看到他們有在認真的看文章,沒過多久就會被其他新鮮有趣的貼文吸引過去。

 

|主動式閱讀體驗VS被動式閱讀體驗

雖然RSS在這個資訊氾濫的時代讓人感覺有些陳腐,我卻依然認為RSS是脫離「社群媒體控制」的最佳解藥。

你說:「我也可以決定在臉書上收看的內容,只要按讚或是追蹤不就好了?」

但事實上,臉書依然會推送你可能完全沒有按讚的專頁文章,只因為你的臉友在上面留言了。也有可能是專頁自己下廣告,你就在莫名其妙的狀況下被對方行銷了。

在我眼中,主動式閱讀必須有以下幾個條件:

  • 增加主動篩選資訊的權重(如果RSS是滿分十分,臉書就大概只有三分)
  • 蒐集資訊並分類(我使用Feedly / Pocket)
  • 心無旁騖地閱讀
  • 資訊成為行動(在evernote上寫下想法)

臉書是依照互動率、時間、按讚、追蹤來決定推送給你的貼文是什麼,其中的演算法複雜的不可參透,而且會不斷更新。只要打開臉書,上面的一則則貼文其背後的目的因你的決定而推送的貼文其實少得可憐,這就是我說的「被動式閱讀」。

如果RSS的「主動篩選資訊」是滿分十分,臉書就大概只有三分。

這也是為什麼我決定要捨棄用臉書搜集貼文,轉而使用更純粹的RSS訂閱。

 

|怎麼使用RSS訂閱?以Feedly為例

當你在你喜歡的網站上看到以下類似wifi的圖標,代表這個網站提供了RSS訂閱的機制,按下圖標就會挑轉到網站的RSS訂閱的頁面。
 

這個時候你必須要選擇你的閱讀器,我自己用的是Feedly這個線上服務。(我的網站RSS訂閱連結:http://feeds.feedburner.com/playlifecloud)

選擇Feedly之後就會跳轉到Feedly的介面,如果你有帳號,就可以直接追蹤;如果沒有的話,只要使用Google帳號就可以馬上註冊。

|使用RSS閱讀軟體的好處:

一、不用再被社群軟體的演算法綁架

前面提過Facebook會為了盈利會把你視為潛在客戶,然後將一些與你無關的、或是消費型的貼文發到你的動態牆上。很可怕的是,現在人手一支手機,每次打開Facebook就是各種行銷的貼文,每則貼文背後都蘊含著金錢的遊戲,而我不喜歡被這些行銷內容牽著走。

 

二、真的喜歡再訂閱,不用被廣告洗版

大部分的RSS閱讀器都不會有太多的廣告,所以每個推送都是你喜歡的網站所更新的內容。

(當然為了生存他們還是會放廣告,只是少到幾乎可以忽略)

 

三、完整的閱讀體驗

有些網站的RSS會抓取完整的圖文內容,你可以直接在閱讀器上體驗沉浸式閱讀的魅力,不用受到網站廣告的干擾。

下圖是我訂閱的StockFeel 股感知識庫推送的文章。

四、清楚管理自己的訂閱內容

大部分的人應該都不知道自己按了多少粉絲專業的讚吧,但RSS閱讀器上你可以輕易的管理自己的訂閱內容(比Facebook的介面好太多),而且因為每次訂閱都是在確定自己很喜歡這個網站之後才訂閱,所以退訂的機會很少。

 

 

 

尾巴:

我在「何謂低資訊飲食:六個步驟讓你在2018年立即提升生產力」提到過,這是一個注意力嚴重被剝奪的時代,我們該做的不是汲汲營營的吸取可能、萬一會用到的知識,而是保護我們的專注力,用於真正重要的事情上。

RSS提供了一個簡單、可行的方法讓你從演算法箝制的資訊中解放。我也不是完全否定臉書的推文機制,就商業的角度來說,臉書無疑是王者,只是我必須要提醒你,為了自己而讀,不要身處在臉書王國的統治下而不自知。

成為一個知道自己要什麼的旅者,那麼臉書王國就只是你旅途中獲取資訊的休憩站罷了。
